When I write articles for WorldStart, I usually like to give some useful tips you all can use to increase your productivity while working on your computer.
But hey, sometimes you just need a coffee break, right?!
So, for a change in pace, I thought I would point you in the direction of a few different Web sites that will either absorb you or amuse you when you have time to take a break from all the serious stuff! (Now, just don’t blame me if you get in trouble with your boss for taking too long of a break to visit these sites). Here we go!

So, there you are! A few of the best Web sites you can visit to spice up your coffee breaks.
But remember: If you get in trouble for spending too much time on these diversions from your boss, your spouse, your parents, children, grandchildren, dog or cat, it wasn’t me who told you about them. Have fun!
