Procrastination Tools

You’d think this post is about staying focused. BEATING procrastination. Well, no. It’s not. I don’t feel like being helpful so I’m being anti-helpful. Playful? Something is -ful and I don’t know what it is. But basically, if you need to get some serious procrastination done, you’re in the right place.

Procrastination Tools

 

I got a lot of these from the Bored Button but some are also just old favourites of mine. Some are useful, funny, kid appropriate, kid-NOT-appropriate (I assume), work safe, not work safe…

 

  1. Boomshine is a bubble game that is surprisingly addictive and hard.
  2. Find out when you are/were 10,000 days old.
  3. Deep sea diver is a flash game I particularly like when I want something mindless to do.
  4. Falling Girl is strangely addictive. And she falls on bubbles, so it’s ok.\
  5. Have you ever wanted to see things duplicate forever?
  6. A challenge I will never, ever win, because I hate sitting still and doing nothing: do nothing for 2 minutes.
  7. If you need to exercise your fingers, try scrolling 100m.
  8. If the moon was 1 pixel – perspective on the size of the solar system.
  9. If you like peeling the plastic off of new LCD screens, try this page.
  10. Some rain, and a storm.
  11. Find the invisible cow is fairly self-explanatory.
  12. When you want to make it all ok.
  13. Perpetual zooming on a cool image.
  14. More rain.
  15. Flick the door stop.
  16. Make a parallelogram.
  17. You can watch planes land at this airport on a live webcam.
  18. The Fabric Ripper is quite therapeutic πŸ™‚
  19. Combine basic elements and see what they make.
  20. Another great “perspectives” one – see how small today is in the history of time.
  21. Bloxorz gets hard… but it’s do-able.
  22. Bloody pingu is probably not child-friendly

  4. I so don’t need this!

    1. You doooo. You dooooooo… I feel like the devil on the shoulder of some kids’ PSA πŸ™‚

  5. BLOODY PINGU!!!!! I had forgotten all about this game! My BIL and I used to play this for hours on end when Dave and I lived with his parents and he would be on night shift, about 10 years ago. Seriously, it would keep us entertained for hours, which I guess says rather a lot about us (the fact that we had partaken in some herbal essence at the time probably had a lot to do with it, I suspect, lol!). Thank you for reminding me! I am definitely going to be having a play, and checking out some of your other suggestions. Sometimes all we need some mindless fun.

    1. Haha it’s an awesome game, isn’t it?!

  6. I play games but not any that are interactive. I also do some brain training things and I love the challenges. When I am procrastinating I am more likely to be scrolling SM – twitter, FB and IG.

    1. I’m trying to break myself of the “bored = social media” habit.

  7. Do you understand how tempted I am to click on these links!! I don’t need this right now. LOL

    1. I just wanted to be extra ‘helpful’ at this time of year!! πŸ™‚

  8. I kind of wish I could unread this post because now I’m going to have to check out ALL these links in the name of research! I already found out I am 16,600 days old today – I do like a round number! You’re such a procrast-enabler!

    1. That is a very nice round number.

  9. Now I’ve seen this post I need to un-see it …

    1. That is exactly what I was hoping for *evil laugh*

  10. I turned 10,000 in 1980. I feel old lol. So much temptation right here. #teamIBOT

    1. Well I wanted to do my part to make this time of year as useless as possible πŸ™‚
