Self

While it sometimes feels like there just aren't enough hours in the day to get the things done that you actually need to get done, we all have found ourselves with a little time to kill from time to time.

And when we're really bored and especially lazy, we turn to the internet for useless websites. Sure, we try to keep things interesting and ourselves educated by reading the daily news, but there's only so much information about the day's events a person's brain can handle.

We all need a break to take in a little mental junk food every now and then. And time-wasting websites are one of the best ways to decompress.

This list features pointless and useless websites.
