The Best Ways To Kill Time At Work

Photographed by Mark Iantosca.
Like operating a printing press or repairing a horse-drawn buggy, killing time is a lost art form. That's not to say we don't know how to do it anymore — passing by the long hours between 9 and 5 is easy in the Internet age. But doing it artfully is a different matter entirely.
Any old slave to the web can browse XKCD for hours on end or fall deep into the annals of Le Memé. But, it takes a special kind of someone to kill time in a way that is, paradoxically, productive. Using the power of your workplace boredom for good is a noble cause. To enable that cause, we give you a slideshow (that's a solid 10 minutes of your day taken care of!) rounding up all the best sites to pass the day away without feeling bad about it. Heck, you might even emerge as a better, smarter, more talented person.
