Time Wasting Websites

Home > London > Fun Things To Do
Published March 23rd 2011
If Facebook isn't enough of a drain on your time, the following are some completely useless websites that will keep you amused for hours.

How much fun is popping bubble wrap? And what if you had access to an unlimited supply of bubble wrap? You do now with Snap Bubbles, a bubble wrap simulator. Unlike real life, you can get a fresh sheet with the click of a button.

Guess the Google is a completely pointless but oddly addictive game. The premise is simple; the player is given twenty images and must guess the common Google search phrase that links them (e.g. for a picture of trees and dogs, the word is bark). The game is ridiculously easy to begin with, but gets harder as you progress.

Create kooky paper dolls at Paper Critters. With four styles – cute, evil, loyal and rebel – you can spend hours combining different facial expressions and details. You can even upload your own image. When you're done, release your creation into The Colony, where other users can check it out.

I'm not really sure if it's an appropriate time waster if you learn something, but considering I nearly flunked out of uni after discovering this site, it seemed a worthy addition. Listverse is an online database of Top Ten lists. You can lose hours browsing the fourteen categories, which include art, politics, movies and the bizarre.

And if you ever enjoyed playing those text adventure games in the 80's and 90's, The Maze is for you. The goal is to find the shortest route through the maze. Along the way, you will be given clues to help you out – and red herrings to hinder.

Who says the Internet is a waste of time?

Thanks a lot Carly!! This would have to be the meanest thing you could do to someone. I defy anyone to exercise the self control needed not to click on one of your links. Impossible.
