Best Time-Wasting Websites

Greetings my readers! For those of you spending gruelling hours at school, uni, or even work, I am here to aid you all. Ever been in the middle of a massive assessment and felt your brain want to implode? I think we've all been there. So how shall I go about preventing this explosion of brain goop? By listing what I deem to be some of the most awesome time wasting websites and procrastination stations available on the world wide web. Who knew I was such a humanitarian?

9. Pop Bubble Wrap Now

What exactly does going on this website entail? I'll give you a hint, the clue's in the title. I think everyone has experienced the immense joy that comes with spending time popping all the bubble wrap from the entire family's Christmas presents. But now, you don't have to wait for a special occasion. Literally, you just get to sit at your computer and pop virtual bubble wrap, and yes, you get to do it now

8. Pollock

Unfortunately, it seems that this title doesn't exactly give you a helping hand as to what this time waster consists of, unless of course you're well versed in art history, in which case this won't seem totally foreign. Named after late American abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock, this website allows you, in all your boredness, to replicate his unique 'drip painting' style (admittedly in a pretty basic format). For those of you who got to use Kid Pix as a child, this is pretty much the same except less fancy. There's just a white background, and the ability to slap electronic splotches of paint onto your screen, but hey, that's still a worthy cure for boredom.

7. Cat Bounce

This one tends to be pretty self explanatory. Just imagine, you've got a bunch of electronic cats, a keypad, and the ability to bounce them. Sure, it's not exactly the most advanced mind stimulation on the planet, but let's face it, who doesn't want to see buoyant felines?

6. I Like You Like A Fat Lady Loves Apples

It may be a tad offensive, but the way I see it, the joy you get out of this game totally counteracts that. What does it entail? Why you simply get the opportunity to feed a fat lady apples. Sure, it may not sound like much, but trust me, you'll just be going through the motions and discover you've actually been on this website for about half an hour. 

5. Guy Forces His Wife to Dress in a Garbage Bag for the Next 3 Years

Don't worry, this isn't some website displaying the horrors of domestic abuse or anything. Oh no, this is one of the many HIMYM tie-in websites available on the wondrous world wide web. In the episode 'Everything Must Go', Marshall off-handedly mentions that due to Lily's shopping addiction that has resulted in some serious debt, he was going to open a website called 'guy forces his wife to dress in a garbage bag for the next three', however the URL was already taken. Low and behold, thanks to the show's producers, it's an actual thing. It's basically just a montage of pictures of a woman wearing a garbage bag with some pretty snazzy music in the background. 

4. Bread Fish

You may be wondering what the hell I'm talking about, but don't worry, I haven't had a seizure and begun randomly slapping the keyboard and hoping for the best, I am still fully in control of my typing skills. Believe it or not, Bread Fish is actually a thing! It was introduced to me in 2011, and it's stuck with me ever since. Is it particularly complicated or profound? No, not at all. However, it does involve a cartoon fish in a loaf of bread, accompanied by a pretty catchy tune. Sound cool? I thought so. 

3. Calming Brits

This little website is definitely a must in order to alleviate the day to day stresses that keep popping up. It pretty much comes as advertised, as whenever you go and visit, there'll be a new meme or gif of a tea-drinking, croquet playing celebrity there for you with some soothing words (gotta love those racial stereotypes). Unfortunately, this is a tumblr website, so this one may be a no-go during class time, however you'll have some awesome motivators waiting for you when you get back home.

2. I Waste So Much Time

Hint's in the title, because this most definitely is an excellent time waster. Need something random and entertaining to mindlessly scroll through? This site's for you. It has gifs and memes galore, plus a bunch of weird and interesting facts you never thought you'd ever read. It's like tumblr, only unblocked! So go ahead and check out its awesomeness immediately, it'll change your life. 

1. Teenage Fanatic

Oh, well look at that, you're already here! Seriously, when you need to waste time, this is a great place to be. You can go through some of my random posts (if you can be bothered), and glance at a bunch of stuff with pretty much no meaning. Really, that's all one searches for in a blog. So feel free to stick around and have a browse to further your deep procrastination. 

Okay, that's officially the end of my meaningless post. Hopefully, on top of all the time wasting you plan on accomplishing with these 9 websites, the act of reading this post managed to take a good 10 minutes out of your day. You're welcome. Til' next time . . .
