These websites are a guilty pleasure for many: they have an addictive appeal, and depending on your personal tastes, these sites can easily occupy 30 mins of your day or more. As you peruse the changing list below, remember that "SFW" stands for "Safe for Work", where the sites have clean content suitable for most viewers. Be warned, however: unless the site is expressly tagged as SFW below, be careful before you open it. Also: if you have a site to suggest for this ever-changing list: submit your favorite addictive website here...
