I was really bored online yesterday and Metro was a bit quiet so it got me thinking about a new thread,self-explanatory really, things to do online when you're bored! Here's a list of websites I find that do seem to kill a bit of time and some that might help someone

A social news site that has news you submit so it gets a bit freaky sometimes. Nice though.

Was absorbed by a few hours at this one. Fascinating to see stuff that's hidden around us - the photos are well worth taking a look at.
