StumbleUpon is a toolbar that beds into your browser and gives you the chance to surf through thousands of excellent pages that have been stumbled upon by other web-users.

What is Fark?

Fark isn't an acronym. It's about news that isn't really news. It is a news accumulator and an edited social networking news site. The first thing you should know is that isn't a Weblog. The slogan "It's not news, it's Fark;" says it all.


Orisinal has 59 online games. They allow you to play and waste time in multiple dimensions. If you want to solve the cancer, world hunger or the U.S. budget deficit problem, then go someplace else. This is a complete time waster.

New Yorker Reporting and Essays web site


Writing, blogging, politics, culture, arts, music, profiles, cartoons and much more--not less. Whether you are liberal or conservative, the writing is clear and provocative. You may spend a lot of time here--some just to get acquainted, some to waste. For a different take, the New Yorker Reporting web site will give you many hours of information. Not exactly a time waster, but a time devourer nevertheless.


Top 10 and Best of


Lists, lists, lists and more lists. Who are the best baseball players on Steroids? What is the Worst Month to Plant Flowers, and what is the Most Enjoyable Television Talk Show? Top 10s and Best of has lists of odd and unusual topics. They are written by a team of regular contributors and welcome comments from users. It's fun to spend time there. Oh, by the way, Barry Bonds leads the list.

Google Earth

Where is your childhood home, your grade school, Barbara Streisand's home or any number of other locations? Google Earth combines the power of Google Search with satellite imagery, maps, terrain and 3D buildings to put the world's geographic information at your fingertips. Just type in an address, press Search, and you'll zoom right in.

The Onion

If you take your news seriously, don't visit The Onion. No news is serious here; it's a great place to find out what is happening around the world by taking the anti-serious approach. It's not real but it is. Here's an example: "Modern-Day Martin Luther Nails 95 Comment Cards To IHOP Door."

Bit Torrents

If you are into file sharing, then Bit Junkie or Mini Nova have some of the largest index sites for torrents. What is a torrent? BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer protocol used for the distribution of large files or file sharing. This is a place where you can spend and waste a lot of time looking for videos , books, anime, movies and music.

Rotten Tomatoes


Guilty Pleasure? Hmm? Reading about celebrities? Hmm? At Rotten Tomatoes you can indulge in tripe, meaningless lives. Your life is boring, so live vicariously through Matt or Jessica, or Ben or Cameron. You can get news, pictures, gossip and enjoy all the envy you can muster. And rest assured, you'll never win any important prize, Nobel or otherwise.


Meaningful and meaningless and important and worthless, Craigslist is the site for you. Go waste your time here, because for every meaningful item you find you can look around at all of the junk out there.

These are the 10 sites on the net to waste time on. There are many others to add to this list but that would be a waste of time.
