Whether you’re a fellow procrastinator, trying to waste time while riding the bus, or just plain bored, it’s always nice to have an arsenal of websites to keep you busy. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started.
- Listverse (http://listverse.com/)
If you’re one of those people who constantly loves to learn about new bizarre and fascinating facts, Listverse is the website for you. They publish three to four Top 10 lists daily ranging from cool scientific facts all the way to creepy unsolved mysteries. You can even submit your own list and get paid for it (http://listverse.com/submit-a-list/)!
- Dear Photograph (http://dearphotograph.com/)
For your inner photographer there’s Dear Photograph. The blog’s slogan is “take a picture of a picture, from the past, in the present.” You can travel back in time by scrolling through pictures of people holding up old photos against the original location of that photo to create a nostalgic image.
- Patatap (http://www.patatap.com/)
Become your own artist on the addicting website that is Patatap. In seconds, your computer keyboard becomes a musical instrument. Enjoy the fun colors and images that pop up on your screen as you create a range of sounds.
- This Is Why I’m Broke (http://www.thisiswhyimbroke.com/)
If you’re not just looking to waste some time but also interested in online shopping, or maybe making fun of a few unique products you never even knew existed, try this site. Items you can find on it include a butt selfie stick, a complimenting weight scale, and a 24K solid gold bicycle, all available for purchase.
- Reasons My Son Is Crying (http://www.reasonsmysoniscrying.com/)
This one is especially fun for new parents or anyone who has ever taken care of a younger child. The blog shows off pictures of children crying and the funny reasons behind it. All the pictures found on the website are examples submitted by real parents all around the world.
