If you're the king or queen of procrastination and are on the hunt for some useless websites (that are equally pointless, random and funny) to distract you from the stuff you should *actually* be doing, we've rounded up 20 of the best for you.

Because yes, believe it or not, websites dedicated to encouraging you to do absolutely nothing productive actually do exist. Is this an episode of Black Mirror? From wiggling worms to technicolour dogs, to the super satisfying circles you just cannot. stop. clicking. Who knew so many random and funny websites existed?

Side note: click at your peril, because we will not be held responsible if you start clicking and suddenly it's 2022.

1. Look through other people's windows

PROCRASTINATE HERE

A website went viral on TikTok this week [January 2021] which encouraged users to look at the view through other people's windows around the world, as well as sharing their own. It's surprisingly calming.

2. Wiggle the worm for a little surprise (that came out wrong)

PROCRASTINATE HERE

This is like one of those wind machine men with the floppy arms, only you get to control which direction it goes in. Brilliant.

3. A passive aggressive password machine

PROCRASTINATE HERE

Nothing inspires a safe and secure password like a computer aggressively judging your choices.

4. Technicolour dogs

PROCRASTINATE HERE

This useless website might not be interactive, but it does involve lots of cartoon dogs running in the same direction. Who's the real winner here?

5. DO NOT CLICK THE BLACK BOX. (We warned you).

PROCRASTINATE HERE

We really did tell you.

6. You are now being redirected

PROCRASTINATE HERE

This would be pretty frustrating if it wasn't so hilarious.

7. Bouncey bouncey cats

Obviously you should click the 'MAKE IT RAIN' button in the top right hand corner (just don't call the RSPCA).

8. Sometimes you just don't know

PROCRASTINATE HERE

Has anyone actually bothered to check this website on the 25th December, or are we all too busy drinking Baileys and waiting for turkey?

9. For unpredictable types

PROCRASTINATE HERE

Did anybody else click this link eight different times just to make sure it actually did show up a different colour? No? Just us then.

10. Always good to check

PROCRASTINATE HERE

*Googles the large hadron collider* (it's the world's largest and highest-energy particle collider and the largest machine in the world, FYI)

11. Aww

PROCRASTINATE HERE

We don't really know what to say about that one, tbh.

12. A game involving cats

PROCRASTINATE HERE

We have literally no idea what the aim of this game is either, but cute music, huh?

13. Y'know when you just want to slap someone?

PROCRASTINATE HERE

How about slapping them with an eel?

14. Keep on clicking...

PROCRASTINATE HERE

It's unclear why the website is called 'Koalas to the max' but God is this satisfying.

15. Switchin' it up

PROCRASTINATE HERE

Sometimes red, sometimes blue. It really is as simple as that.

16. Unbearable to watch

PROCRASTINATE HERE

Literally unbearable. This could be a torture method.

17. Choon

PROCRASTINATE HERE

That's a lot of badgers.

18. SUPER satisfying

PROCRASTINATE HERE

The sound is so soothing.

19. The best game ever

PROCRASTINATE HERE

Now this is the type of thing we can play for hours. Trusty rock.

20. Endless pug love

PROCRASTINATE HERE

Yes that is a pug licking your computer screen from the inside. And what?

Now, get back to work / revision / real life.
