    I have come to the sad conclusion that I am bored of the Internet. [​IMG] I mean, don't get me wrong, the Internet is great for research, shopping and communicating, and I wouldn't dream of giving up my high speed, but still... I am just not satisfied by anything out there any more.
    I figured I could get some good ideas from my fellow HTF members as to what their favorite spots on the web are (besides the HTF of course [​IMG]).
    So? Any ideas? Where do you frequent?

    You must not be looking at the right "free porn" sights. That'll liven up your internet boredom.

    Again, you guys aren't looking at the right "free porn" sights.

    I have a firm belief that basically about 92% of the internet is dedicated to porno sites... of all shapes and sizes... well, I like to read about DVDs (www.thedigitalbits.com, www.dvdangle.com, www.hometheaterforum.com [​IMG] , www.dvdfile.com, www.dvdreview.com, www.avsforum.com) IGN Boards (www.ignboards.com) and EZBOARD (www.ezboard.com) are also interesting to read if you like mostly unmoderated discussion (basically insulting each other's mothers)
    hmm... www.topsecretrecipes.com has some of fast-food/coporate machine's biggest cooking secrets, it is always fun to see what is in the McDonald's secret sauce.

    There is a TV ad (may be just local to Ca), I beleive it is one of the DSL spots from SBC, it started with the computer announcing to the "surfer" that he's been to everywhere and seen everything on the net, there is nothing more. The ad ends with the guy's wife asks him, "I thought you are surfing the net?", he answers, "I am done".

    As some of you might know, i'm a big fan of the female form.[​IMG] And when i'm not here, which is pretty much all the time talking with my fellow HT friends, I love just thinking of a singer or actress that I find attractive, doing an image search on her, and just browse the galleries looking at stills of them. This only when I get really bored though, usually i'll throw a disc in the ol dvd player and let her rip.
    I for one find porn to be absolutly repugnant and tastless, I have just as much fun looking at pictures of Charlze Theron either fully clothed or nude. I don't consider nudity to be porn, the female body is a wonder of nature to behold, I have no interest in seeing people giving BJ's on my computer.

    Yeah, most of the internet is pretty boring. But every once in a while you find fun stuff... like this: http://www.shockplay.com. Go there and play ping-pong or bowling, they are GREAT games (you have to register, but it's free)! Pretty addictive though.

    Whenever I get bored, I go here:
    http://www.consumptionjunction.com/
    There is hours and hours of sick, disgusting, horrible, hilarious and disturbing stuff here: videos, photos, funny stuff.
    For adults only, tho. (It's got an entrance warning.)

    Heres one of my favorite sites. The Dead People Server. It's a great site if you ever need to settle a bet or just want to know who is still alive or dead.
    Also, if your really bored... you can put your name on a Mars Rover so when humankind finally does colonize Mars, they will know just how bored you were!
    Of course the first rover blew up on the way to Mars... so, my name didn't make it last time... but I'm confident this time!
