Collections of EVERYTHING
Albino Blacksheep - Yes, some collection sites have more content, but this one has the hard-to-find multimedia and the off-the-wall stuff that you can't find anywhere else. Weird movies, funny animations, and links galore. They're priceless, really.
Blogdex.net - So what's being talked about on the web? People have long understood that news sites and gossip pages don't tell you what American's really chatting about; web logs do. Blogdex scans thousands of blogs for hot topics and posts them.
Bored.com - This site is designed for kids, really, but there's still a few gems hidden around that even us older, mature folks can appreciate. I used to go here often, but now I don't visit as much. Still, it's worth a click when you're bored. Hence "Bored.com."
CollegeHumor - Upon remembering this site for this list, I decided to go pay it a visit. I spent 2 friggin' hours there. So many movies...so many links to weird crap...so much fun. I consider those two hours, and every two hours hereafter, well-spent.
Comedy Central - The best thing about Friday Night television is Friday Night Standup on Comedy Central. Click on this link to learn more about the comedians, check out other shows, play games, or look at some flashy things. Flashy things...
Ebaum's World - From baffling puzzles to funny movies to the famous soundboards, this site always has something to help waste your time. Check out the prank calls and the movies, but beware of the new increase in ads. Ebaum likes $$$, apparently.
Fazed.net - Daily Links - Few surfers realize the power Fazed has to cure boredness. Vast archives of awesome pictures, games, movies, links, whatever amuses you. And new sites are being added everyday. So check back often. Very often.
MameWorld.net - Here is your resource for Mame fun. Virtually everything you could want or need for Mame, the famous arcade emulator, is available through this single site. A great abundance of stuff here. A HUGE abundance.
Maxim Online - Great articles, trustworthy reviews, and of course, the pictures. I put this site under the collections section, though I know why most of you fellows are clicking here. And I don't blame you for a second. :D
MilkandCookies.com - Daily links to the strange, the funny, the most outrageous stuff the internet has to offer, and it all gets archived and categorized for later viewing. You can and will spend hours here. This is why internet addctions exist.
NewGrounds.com - I have mixed feelings about this site. On one hand, there are tons of flash games and movies to enjoy. On the other, there's this smutty feel to the entire site. My advice is to click with caution and x the popups quickly.
Planet Family Guy - Everyone's favorite cancelled show still has sites about it. This one, the best one I've seen, offers news, games, downloads, some links, and an extensive episode guide. (No episodes for downloading though. How unfortunate.)
Check out the official site for more Family Guy stuff.
Ripley's Believe-It-Or-Not - This Ripley fellow collects the strangest crap; everything from weird events like elephant lynchings to strange human talents. Pictures and movies for "proof." I don't believe it. Any of it. SCREW YOU.

MAME - Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator - Once you download their emulator, there are dozens of sample arcade games right on their site, and more around the web if you look hard enough. (Try MameWorld.net.) Hours of classic gaming.
MidiFarm.com - This site features thousands of popular songs in MIDI form, a specific kind of audio that's legal to download and more versatile than MP3's. If you want to listen to your favorite songs in much smaller formats, click here.
SETI@Home - SETI stands for "Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence." A program you can download here helps to continue that search. It works just like a screensaver and works when your computer is idle, joining a complex network of other machines.
Video Game Manual Scans - Everyone loves looking at the instruction booklets when you get a new video game, but over time they get lost or ripped. This site has video game manuals for every(?) NES, SNEW, and Atari 2600 game available as downloads.

FHM's Top 100 Games - Just when you think you've seen all the best games, FHM makes the Top 100 Games list and ruins your fantasy. Great, replayable games, many of which I liked so much I added to my own list. Boredom's greatest foe.
Flashplayer.com - This sites's strongest point is definately the vast amount of games, but if you weed through the pages ,you'll find a few decent animations too, like stickdeath and video game parodies. But the games, dude. The games.

Ghosts.org - Quite simply, this is one of the scariest sites you'll see on the net. Not scary as in startling, or scary as in unsettling, but scary as in you will go to sleep questioning every nocturnal noise you hear. In fact, maybe you won't sleep.

FindAGrave.com - Search for the grave site of past relatives or famous celebrities. Don't ask me how they do it, or even why they do it, but they find them. Now all you need is a reason to look this kind of thing up. Necrophilia?
FrogGuts.com - FrogGuts.com takes the messy part out of disecting animals with realistic and anatomically-correct flash disections. The main attraction? The Frog. Rip that sucka open, homeslice.
GoogleFight - Pick any two words and let them "fight" to see which would get more hits when put into the Google search engine. (Who comes up with this?) It's a weird, weird popularity contest, and only the strongest survive the Google Fight.
GraffitiCreator - As simple as graffiti art can get. Type in your thug name (I suggest 'Crispy Mix') and play around. Just about everything is easy to color, stretch and rotate. Only two fonts though.
Guess the Dictator or Sitcom Character - Think of someone from TV or a dictatorship - Danny Tanner, Marge Simpson, Julius Caeser - and answer the questions. Chances are, this nifty little site will guess who you're thinking of.
HotOrNot.com - Are you hot? Probably not. But this site can at least give you a good idea of how truly ugly you are. Thousands of people just like you patrol the site and rate everyone they see. And that's a good thing. The earlier you accept it, the better.
Let Them Sing it For You - Interesting text-to-speech convertor. Instead of just saying the words, it plays the words as clips from different songs, completely singing your entire phrase. Only on the internet, my friend. Only on the internet.
LoopLabs - The best flash music mixer I think I've ever seen, LoopLabs is an easy-to use-music generator with loads of different present beats and sounds for all your mixing needs. Complete your beat with fades, paning, and solo action. Hooray for music.
MetaSpy - Want to see what people are typing in search engines? It just don't get more random than this. There's either a filtered version of safe searches or the real thing that shows all queries. Delve into human mind and find ..."Pottery Barn"?
Play (like 20 Questions) - While it can't always guess what you're thinking of quickly, it can almost always do it accurately. The smart A.I has already guessed 'bout everything in my room correctly. Can you stump it?
The Prior-Art-O-Matic - Seriously, this is one awesome site. Push a button and out pops a randomly generated product idea. Remember the numbers of your favorites and share them with friends! That reminds me: 4264250428.
The Rasterbator - What is "rasterbation"? Well, I can tell you it's healthy, normal, and involves lots of cool pictures. And now you can rasterbate right online, without touching yourself at all! Free image rasterbation here.
The Reflex Tester - Now you can test your reflexes the easy way, without small rubber hammers or faulty brakes. Wait 'til the background color changes, then click as fast as possible. Can you beat .047 seconds? I have "the reflexes of a snake." :)

Soda Constructor - The Soda Contructor applet is made up of masses, springs, and muscles. From those three components you can make little working machines and lifelike creatures. The minutes just life by, don't they?
Text-Image.com - Convert Pictures to Text - This is quite an amazing little site here. It can automatically convert any picture from your hard drive into colored text. Lots of options specify the characters, picture size, and color. Good fun.
Things Other People Accomplished When They Were Your Age - Tell them how old you are, and instantly your achievements seem trivial. At age 9, Shirley Temple was a millionaire, Mozard was making symphonies, and William J. Sidis Jr. entered Harvard.
You Are My Friend - Feel like faking you designed a flash movie to express gratitude towards a friend? Just put in your friend's first and last name in the link and a flash video will play with their name in it. It'll make them giggle like a schoolgirl! :o
Awful Comics - Ok, so they're obviously done in MSPaint, but c'mon, they're still hilarious. Mad props to the amateurs who make me giggle more than Garfield. I still need to know: who killed Hero Stabber? My prediction is the detective...
Elftor - Elf + Cheese + 'Tor suffixes = hilarity. It makes me giggle, especially when there's just hookers and profanity. Oh yeah, and twisted violence. Why? Because I'm sometimes sick wit it. Oh fo' sho' doe, iz off the heezy fo shneezy, ma neezy. ...:(
Her! - Girl vs Pig. Simply hilarious. I read every comic after I saw the first, and I was not disappointed. If not satisfied, just use their do-it-yourself and mix up better ones 'til you hurt really badly. Always four panels. Just about always awesome.
Penny Arcade - Finally, I've stumbled upon a new comic worth adding to my site! Two obsessed video games take on the real world through swearing and typical prank stuff. Really well done and absolutely hilarious.
Pokey the Penguin - Every time I read this comic with Dan, I laugh. It's not even funny, just so poorly drawn and random. Penguins explore the antartic and have short little adventures together. That all makes sense, but why do they always have guns?
Sea Strife - Pretty amateur, pretty funny. There's a few episodes (18, 40, 41) where I just about peed my pants. See how you like it. Unfortunately, there haven't been any updates here for a while, so if it stays dead, it'll have to come off. :(
The Starship Destiny (formerly A Modest Destiny) - The first series was one of the few webcomics I really truly followed all the way through. Now they're starting anew and I'm getting into it again. Weird characters, cool plot, and pixel art. Joy!
Toothpaste for Dinner - Now updated daily, Toothpaste for dinner is a simple comic about funny observations in everyday life. The drawings are crude, and not even colored, but this is easily one of the best webcomics ever. I visit daily.
White Ninja Comics - I recently tried explaining this comic to a friend of mine, and I don't think she quite got it. But the last guys I showed this to now check back often and tell me how much they <3 it. And can you blame them? It's White Ninjery.
Wigu - I wish this one was updated more, but when it is, it's quite good. Interesting storylines about the Tinkles and a boy's cartoon friend, Topato. Everything from goth cheerleading to monkeys. (I want the monkey t-shirt.) Do you wrangle monster trucks?
Zxipi - This guys photoshop skills are almost as amazing as his funny skills. Read all of these, especially the really old black and white ones. Strange, twisted, but so cool. Unfortunately, there haven't been updates recently, so it may come down. *tear*
Flash Stuff and Other
The Egg - It's an egg, and it rolls to the cursor. But instead of hatching, it does something else. It evolves.
I Know Where Bruce Lee Lives - Before there was Pianographique, there was Bruce Lee. Here's a sweet music mixer that combines great beats with everyone' favorite Kung Fu master, Bruce Lee. Complete the beat, mixer-san.
The Simulator - Want to work at a McDonalds and have just about the most boring day ever, again and again? Now you can! And through a website too! It's amazing what people will spend their time making. Or actually playing...
Speech Accent Archive - Listed here are well-over 300 speech samples in different accents. Ok, so there it's not all that fun, but it IS cool to listen to what Stella needs to bring from the store in Farsi and Bengali, right? Right?
The Square Root of -1 - Weird, interactive visuals for you to play with. Most of it's just simple flash eye candy, but you can easily spend a few hours here. Enjoy the show.
The Subservient Chicken - Tell a man in a chicken suit to do whatever you want him to do. While not everything works, there's a surpising amount that he will do if you're creative enough to think it up.
Surface.Yugop.com - Mono Crafts 3.0 - Here's some fun flash visuals to toy with. Between clocks and timers, flip books, and black ribbons, this site harnesses the power of flash as pure eye candy. Prepare to spend half an hour here, at least.
Try2Hack.com - This site encourages you to hack into their code, steal a password, and break into other parts of their webpage. As the levels progress, the puzzle becomes more complex. I got pretty far. r j00 l337 h4><><0r 2?
The Tesseract: Four-Dimensional Space - Big scientific hot shots said that it was impossible to look at the fourth dimension. Man, were THEY wrong. Here's a simple java applet that lets you see the unseeable for yourself.
