Websites that I waste time on

You've probably noticed that the majority of my posts here are to do with procrastination or even inspiration and in the same vein, we are going to be working with procrastination and the best sites for it.
Here are a few of my favourite sites for killing time on; visit at your own risk of time.

This is why I'm broke
This is why I'm broke is a site full of nerd-things, cool-things, odd-things and just general things that you can't afford/never will, with the exception of a few hip and vintage little gadgets and bits of jewellery you can pick up for a relatively low price.
Example of some of the great gift ideas...
+ Transformer USB Flash Drive - Just as cool as it sounds.
+ Moving Ink Blots Mask - Fancy being Rorschach from that movie with the blue penis? Do it.
+ Playstation Controller Soap Bar - Being clean is groovy baby.
+ Vintage Medic Style Messenger Bag - I'm in need of a new bag and this is looking like a prime-time candidate.

If you've got lots of money and don't want to indulge in a drug habit, why not buy a few bits and bobs from this fantastic on-line window-shopper.

The Wub Machine
A funky internet tool that let's you turn almost any song (it has a few problems with some songs) into a dubstep, house or drum and bass track.
This nifty little gadget has helped me murder time to an almost explicit degree by remixing some very unlikely songs.
Not that many songs these days don't have a dubstep remix, seriously, Bob the Builder dubstep? Mother of Jesus, yes!
A few songs I've butched with Wub Machine...
+ Bleed - Meshuggah
+ Oceansize - Catalyst
+ Fur Elise - Beethoven
+ When I'm Cleaning Windows - George Formby Sr.

Life Hacker
Lifehacking is something that I've loved since my first info-graphic, but this site takes it to an informative new level by providing you with work tips, cooking tips, tips for working out and some really well written articles that don't talk down to you, like some websites in a similar vein do.
It's a great website to frequent whether you're a person who spends a lot of time on the internet or even if you're just a casual internet user and let's face it, if you're here, you're probably the former.

YouTube
A painfully obvious one for most internet abusers, this website will let you find ALMOST ANYTHING you want. The main reason I personally use YouTube is to engage in a bit of nostalgia or to watch a few LPers.
However, nothing keeps me coming back as much as episodes of old-school cartoons like Cow and Chicken and The Power Puff girls.
Videos I watch too much of...
Laddergoat
How Not To Play Hitman
Stgggs Video's

Huge fan of Life Hacks here. Every time I read one I can use I wonder why nobody else ever thinks of it.
