24 of the Best Sites to Kill Time On the Internet

A note of warning however, these sites will suck your time away. Don’t continue unless you are prepared to not get anything done today.

1. The Oatmeal

The Oatmeal might just be our favorite webcomic. Maybe because it is based out of Seattle (as are we), maybe because they made Exploding Kittens, or maybe it is because it is just always dang funny. Warning, not always safe for work or kids.

2. The Wayback Machine

It’s a huge archive of websites throughout history. For example, type in apple.com and click June 30, 2007, and the headline will be “Say hello to iPhone.”

3. The Office Stare Machine

‘The Office’ Stare Machine showcases every single time a character speechlessly breaks the 4th wall and stares at the camera.

Don’t overthink it. Bouncy Balls is a site that bounces balls in your screen and responds to mouse clicks or your mic.

12. One Tiny Hand

A thoroughly random Tumblr where you can peruse pictures where one hand in the image has been retouched to be smaller. Yes, Donald Trump makes an appearance.
