15 Web Addresses for Wasting Time … View At Your Own Risk!
There’s a lot of articles around about how to make your time more productive. But some days I really don’t want to be productive, and while I should get off my chair and go outside instead I find myself killing time online.
Here are a few of my favourite web addresses for wasting time. (Got your own favourites? Comment them!)
Create your own games and play them with just a photo and some free time
Make hilarious cartoons with Fuzzwich’s video making machine. Complete with music, backgrounds and actors…
3. Strip Generator
Similar to Fuzzwich, strip generator gives you everything you need to make amusing cartoon strips of your very own. You can even “strip blog” which isn’t nearly as risque as it sounds.
Fight for fame and glory by buying and selling shares of websites. Not sure if this is a ‘do something’ or ‘play something’, probably a little in between. The site uses Alexa rankings which everyone knows are somewhat arbitrary which makes it that much more realistic I suppose.
It’s like Magic the Gathering but online and very, very addictive. Approach with caution!
6. Desktop Tower Defence
If you haven’t played DTD you may have been living under a rock. It’s so simple, yet so blindingly addictive. When you find yourself watching videos on YouTube to understand how to top score you know you’ve gone too far.
It’s the home of everything gamey, witht 1345 flash games and lots of community, kongregate is games 2.0
Designer cool meets pixel gaming. Weewar is a round based strategy game that is well wortth seeing.
A bizarre combination of pixel graphics, tetris and neatness won this little game a webby!
10. Mansion Impossible
Like property, but too cheap to actually buy any? … fear not with Mansion Impossible you can waste time and get rich … sorta.
11. Kottke’s List

The grand-daddy of Flash movies and games, newgrounds would take years to traverse properly, so there is no way you won’t find something interesting to watch (or play)
13. Trailers on Apple
The only drawback to watching trailers is that when you go the cinema the ones before the movie aren’t nearly as exciting as they used to be. Still the great thing about watching trailers is they’re nice and short so you can get back to being productive again … unless of course you start watching another one.
14. Very Funny Ads
Movies not your thing? How about rampant commercialism made good!
Tired of wading through the rubbish on YouTube? Metacafe filters so the quality is much higher meaning even more time wasted.
