User Forum Topic
Submitted by CDMA ENG on October 19, 2012 - 10:06pm

So. I am bored of the Internet... I find my world is very limited. The sites I routinely visit come down to this.

CNN
Yahoo
Mish
The Economist
BBC Sport
Piggington's
TED (if I have half and hour to spare)
Craigslist
Youtube (for airplanes, rat rods, etc)

So what do you guys recommend?

You need to find a good hobby...

Like assemble a kit car or something like that.

You are missing the point. I do have a "day time" activity...

What I am asking is when it is 10:30 at night and you don't want to watch the tele anymore... What do you purse on the web...

I am looking for interesting web sites... I do use youtube for the woodworking stuff and the like...

Watched french polishing, or shlacing, the other day...

Hmmm... Well 10:30 at night...you're still awake. internet...ere's a lot of things you can do...I know, because I have to stay up a lot working with waiting from folks/work from Bangalore...

*I read somewhere there is a porn website that pays you to evaluate porn....:)

*Join a strategy/game group.. I use to play mahjong on the internet with folks overseas... I kicked some of their butt, thank you very much.

*Search around websites and find "deals" and try to get as much shit for free as possible, then try to sell the shit on ebay...How else do I spot the $60 128GB SDD specials?

*Browse sdlookup/redfin/etc a look at house porn.

*Browse craigslist/autotrader/etc for car porn... I'm looking for a cheap Mazda Miata to turn into a track car.

*Get involved with trading on a foreign exchange.... I believe schwab recently has access foreign exch markets for reasonable prices.

*Start a blog and share what you know and give back to others who offered free information to you...I use to write how-to articles on some of the audi forums....I had a blog on how to hack a nexus Q when it first came out....

*Make a movie...Out of R/C's...
This is just awesome in so many ways.

The greatest police chase...

don't know if you fancy wooden sailboats, but I have burned lots of time watching these amazing videos and reading great posts.

It costs a few bucks, but definitely worth it. The level of woodworking craftsman-ship (get it?) is impressive.
