If you’re anything like New York Magazine contributor Dan Nosowitz, the older you get, the more difficult it becomes to find ways to waste time on the internet.
He writes: “And then, one day, I think in 2013, Twitter and Facebook were not really very fun anymore. And worse, the fun things they had supplanted were never coming back. Forums were depopulated; blogs were shut down. Twitter, one agent of their death, became completely worthless: a water-drop-torture feed of performative outrage, self-promotion, and discussion of Twitter itself. Facebook had become, well … you’ve been on Facebook.”
It’s just not fun anymore.
But, off the internet, there are some real world things to do that are still fun. Here is a list of some of them. Never mind the fact that you have to jump on the boring ol’ internet for a second to peruse it.
