Help me waste some precious time

[Answer to the poll question: the cities are amazingly close in latitude, with the suburbs of some overlapping. Portand is the correct answer at 45.6 degrees; Venice is next at 45.4, Mpls at 45.0, then Toronto and Vladivostok.]

It was a very long time ago that I linked to "Cute Things Falling Asleep." It was one of those things I discovered that makes the internet so fascinating to me: someone created something weird that I would never have imagined. It's been hard to find great places to waste time since then.

I've always been a fan of The Museum of Bad Art, which also exists in the real world, not far from the Museum of Fine Art in Boston. I especially like the landscapes where streams just start and end in a cornfield, for no apparent reason.

Then there's Awkward Family Photos. This is being made into a TV series, somehow, I've heard. There are some real belly laughs there.

The internet allows people with very, very, very specific interests to meet. For example, there's the fanclub for Aaron Neville's mole (If I were him, I'd have had it removed as soon as I had the money).

Most of my favorite sites have disappeared. Where should I surf next?

Ha ha ha ha ha! I love MoBA. So is it an honor for an artist to get featured there? Hmmm. I have to say there is some good stuff - like "Woman Riding Crustacean".

Have you ever wasted time on Student Doctor Network.

Just looked at all of those sites. "Damn you autocorrect" is good stuff!

SLG: Went there, went to the optometrist forum, saw someone wanted help with the OAS. Isn't it just
