    "Shutupandtakemymoney is a great resource when you have that certain thing in mind that you know you really need, but didn't think you could actually find it anywhere. From the odd to the adorable and everything in between, it's a great shopping site to find that thing you didn't quite know you needed!"

    "So I'm pretty bored between classes right now, so I decided to check out this website, The Useless Web. Though it's alright, it didn't really do anything for my boredom. Though it has an interesting idea, it just didn't do enough for me."

    "If I have a friend who's bored, like really really bored, I might refer them to this Youtube channel. The animations are simpler even than South Park, and the voiceover narration of different clips talks about the big questions including "optimistic nihilism," the Big Bang, and "What are you?" I'm entertained by the presentation of big philosophic ideas in these little packages. And certainly Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell presents an alternative to watching game shows all day. "

    "HowStuffWorks' biggest problem is that they try to cover too many topics. They try to put out a ton of content to boost their revenue and the end result is that they never really cover anything in depth."

    "I was recently stuck in an airport for hours because my flight was delayed. Thankfully, I had my computer and after a quick search found CrashCourse. At first this youtube channel seemed a little odd, but after I spent some time searching through all the video's I found all sorts of interesting lectures. The best part about CrashCourse is that the videos are only 15 minutes or so which is a huge plus for a guy like me who doesn't always have a great attention span. Next time you are bored or just interested in learning a thing or two check out CrashCourse!"

    "This is an excellent resource for anyone who is bored with time on their hands. It is much like Netflix, except that it ties into your local library and is free. The movie selection may not be as varied as Netflix, but with somebody who's a little bit bored and makes a great resource."
