i personally like Cracked.com

io9 always has interesting stuff.

The Gutenburg project has 1000s of books.

waitbutwhy.com

It’s pretty old and a lot of the links are dead, but still some interesting stuff.

Man, I remember back in '99, I was working at a commercial studio in Manhattan, and very often I would find myself waiting for the computer guys to scan my images into the system. With nothing else to do, I’d always pop onto a nearby terminal and whittle away my time with some new site called “Testosterone.com”.

I’m dumbfounded that anyone has to ask about interesting stuff to read on the internet. The entire WORLD is on here! My struggle is to pull myself away from all the interesting things.

Thanks for the suggestions. However, I meant more specific articles. This was mentioned in another thread and gave me the idea.

thebiglead.com and deadspin.com are always good for short time-killers, like needing a 5-10 minute break to read something funny or sportsy.

I also second the recommendation for theoatmeal.com as well.

If you want more in-depth reading, IDK.
