Sites I have bookmarked for those times when I need to distract or hearten myself, such as days when, say, the whole world laughs at the American President for getting shoes lobbed at his head during a surprise visit to the country he invaded and destroyed.
- English Fail and Wordsplosion! – I don’t think you have to be an English major to find this kind of thing entertaining
- Instructables</a – because really, when you need to know How to Remove A Fishing Hook Using Fishing line, you want video. An upscale version of this is Video Jug.
- Gaping Void – Cartoons drawn on the back of business cards. This guy is talented! Yet settles for amusing me for free. Ain’t America great? (Actually, he has a day job — a really good one. He just manages to look like he goofs off all day. Neat trick, that.)
- Free Video Games Project
- The Open Directory Project – always good for wasting a few minutes … or hours.
What sites do you use for creative exploit or slothful recreation?
