Favorite time-wasting websites

Instead of doing all of the work that I need to do yesterday, I spent way too much time on these websites that I just discovered:

Passive-Aggressive Notes -- they're funny because they're true!

The Internet Movie Car Database -- because you absolutely have to know that the car in the background of that scene from The Aviator was a 1939 Nash Lafayette four-door sedan.

So, anybody have any favorite time-wasting websites that they would like to share with me so that I can pretty much avoid work indefinitely and eventually cost me my job?

@joefromchicago,
I don't have anything to add for you. I am too busy searching that damn Internet Movie Car Database.

Damn you, Joe.

Addictive, ain't it?

@joefromchicago,
(Don’t Fear) The Creeper
January 3rd, 2010 · 172 comments

I live in an apartment complex where most people know each other and are generally on good terms,” says Jin in California…or so he thought. As it turns out, there’s a pool of bold-underlined-all-caps-highlighted frustration simmering (oh-so-hilariously) just below the surface.

I hesitate to post this website, because: (1) it's actually useful (I check it occasionally to find out about construction activity in Chicago); and (2) if I do, I'll spend the next hour on stuff like finding out what the tallest building in Togo looks like.

Stumbleupon.com is a good way to find them and aggregators like reddit and digg can be time sinks of site discovery, But nothing tops wikipedia as a time waster for me. I lose hours at a time there several times a week.

If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There'd Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats

I've posted links to this site before. It has tons of high quality photos in a bunch of quirky categories that are just fascinating. Lots of time to be wasted here.

Found another one: TV Tropes.

The discussion on fridge logic is a good place to start.
