Looking for the best sites to kill time?
There are plenty of sites other than Netflix, Facebook, and YouTube for you to kill time. We’ve compiled a list of our favorites below. Note: we didn’t include Sporcle as a time wasting website because we don’t see time spent on Sporcle as a waste – more like a mentally stimulating diversion ;).
A note of warning however, these sites will suck your time away. Don’t continue unless you are prepared to not get anything done today.
