Whaddyareckon?: Wasting time online

The Internet: a procrastinator's heaven. But what are your sites of choice for time-wasting? That's what we're asking this week.

According to Seinfeld's George Costanza, the key to looking busy at work is to constantly wear an expression of impatience and annoyance.

Just something to remember when you head to Facebook on your office PC for the 74th time today.

How did we ever procrastinate before the arrival of the Internet? The thought doesn't bear contemplation. These days, putting off essential tasks is as easy as pointing your browser to YouTube and sitting back as the chimps on screen beat each other up for the amusement of the gathered throng.

In this week's Whaddyareckon? we're asking how much time you spend online and what sites you visit to distract yourself from the things you're really meant to be doing. Oh, and the show has a new host. Sort of.

Are you on Facebook? So are we. Join our Whaddyareckon? group here.
