some nice time-wasting websites
« on: November 13, 2009, 11:45:42 PM »

For when you're waiting on someone to respond to a particular post here...

www.giantitp.com  If you haven't read this webcomic yet, be sure to start at comic #1; it starts out rather slow, but takes an epic nature fairly quickly ("I blame Cerebus.")  I'd like to mention here that Belkar rocks.

www.tvtropes.org  Find out how your favorite TV show (or book, or movie) is exactly like every other TV show (or book, or movie)

www.snopes.com  Urban legend reference pages

http://www.wizards.com/dnd/rsspodcast.xml  Scroll to the bottom and listen to the podcast of the guys at penny arcade play D&D 4th edition.  *WARNING* This Podcast contains strong language that some might find offen....nevermind

Now THIS is a good thread. Often I am stuck in conference calls... too boring to pay total attention to the call; too distracted listening to the call (and sometimes having to say something intelligent-sounding) to be able to do useful work.

forgot one: www.lileks.com

Check out his gallery of regrettable food, the deconstruction of bad comic books, and the large collection of postcards from cheesy 1960's motels.

Update: he also has the first instance of computer-generate pr0n: http://www.lileks.com/institute/compupromo/2.html

Cracked.com is awesome, but their research is a it spotty. Even for a humor magazine, its fantastically funny.
