When I'm on the web, I like to find stuff to do, but somehow it's always something time-wasting, not really productive. But fun!

I think my biggest time waster was gaiaonline, but started visiting the site less and less. I just lost interest I guess.

So, anyone want to discuss what they do unproductively, but fun (or not?) on the web?

(Wow that was short...)

I read forums and webcomics. I have a bad habit of wiking movies I haven't seen to find out what happens.

And TV Tropes just eats time.

Brits: I do that too (the wiking movies thing). Particularly horror movies. They make them sound so much more interesting.

I have no idea. I seem to just subsist, sometimes :O Creative things usually fill the gap pretty well, if I'm in the mood, TV Tropes is an eater of worlds, sometimes I have video games hanging around, then there's TV, and forums, and prowling the internet...

Panda, I wiki a lot of movies too, especially horror because I don't have the stomach to watch gory movies. In fact this morning I wikied Hostel and Hostel 2.

In a minute I'm going to log off and waste time by watching TV, I need to write my essay but I'm justifing it by eating my lunch. Can't write essays and eat lunch at the same time.

Oof, I'm so bad for wikipedia. Especially in highschool when I was used that site for research (bad idea). I'd look at everything except for what I was supposed to. I just generally try to avoid that site, except when I'm really curious about something and want to read up on quickly. I only recently heard of TVtropes so I never really quite looked at it yet.

I read webcomics, deviantart...and other stuff. Especially when I'm doing homework XD. I'm so bad for that.

Good lord, TV Tropes.

That is all.

My list would be the following:

Webcomics, video games, chat programs, forums (intelligent and not so), fan-subs

This be Claen'tor, signing off.

I should be more precise in my wording, clearly. <.<;

I watch fan-subs, I don't actually do the subbing. If I did, it'd be Japanese to English, and dependent upon what I found worthwhile at the time. Plus, wouldn't that count as doing something productive? o.o

I tend to procrastinate mostly on here. Or facebook. Or any one of the looooooong list of webcomics I read.

@ Brit: I get the feeling we might be related or something... O_o

@ Emms: TVTropes has Wiki's time-suckingness times infinity. INFINITY.

Reading is another one! I don't seem to do it so much any more, though...
