Best Places for Wasting Time on the Net

message: Best places to procrastinate on the web, looking up videos, pics, jokes and random hilarious facts. Also, for some cheap amusement- google an aim-bot. Use it on your friends while chatting. after ten minutes you get to read the interesting and sometimes frusterating conversation your friends had with this online bot you made.Look up Google pranks. Google has alot of mess ups, that are fun to play with. Like Google Talk it’s supposed to finish your sentence… But what sometimes comes out can be VERY random. Or Google Picture Poetry. That can be interesting. Have fun procrastinating!

message: Google. Even if doing research for a paper, I tend to get side-tracked to another site or "cool" article (and therefore end up procrastinating!)

message: The best place to procrastinate on the net is not on the web, if that’s what you’re thinking. It’s out there playing tennis, basketball, or even ping pong. Getting into sports is a great way to put off piano lessons, and if you worh hard, you can even get rid of the other stuff you’re stalling and take up net sports full time. That’s way better than sitting in a chair staring at a computer screen to get out of work.

You know how it sucks when that book you just adored has to end ? I, for one, am completely unwilling to relinquish characters that have become dear to me. There’s also the situation where there is to be a continuation… but it’s not coming any time soon. The best way to get a fix to to surf on over to fanfiction.net, where they have fiction written based on fiction, by people like you. Some of the stories rival even the originals in terms of creativityand skill. It’s great to revisit favourite old worlds and characters.

places like this one, where you’re trying to do your research homework, but something catches your eye. Please make it as easy as possible for us to concentrate… … it’s hard enough as it is.

addicting, for both high school students and college students. You can look up friends, post pictures, write comments, and stalk random people that you just saw across campus.
