Webcams make the world feel magic, and that's why they have survived 17 years on the internet. The webcam has evolved from still images to video, from tiny, muddy pictures to pristine 4k streams. Video technologies like Twitch, Snapchat, and Skype haven't killed the appeal of a mounted camera pointed at the same spot 24/7.

Geek to live, we’ve always said at Lifehacker. Don’t live to geek. That means you shouldn’t let your “life hacking” get in the way of your actual life. And the DiWHY subreddit shows you why. These hacks should not exist. They’re more ugly, wasteful, useless or time-consuming than whatever normal product or method they replace. And they’re fun as hell to look at.

Where do you go to waste time on the internet? Facebook and Twitter, the usual default answers, are exhausting. Scrolling through them feels like work. "I don't know how to waste time on the internet anymore," says Dan Nosowitz in the internet-culture blog Select All. We agree with him that it's way too easy to get trapped on boring and negative social feeds. But we don't agree that the internet doesn't have any fun, crazy places left. If you've forgotten how to waste time online, try these sites and happily while away the hours.

You open what looks like a bill, but it's just junk mail. You click through a donation process too fast, and they turn your one-time donation into a monthly contribution. A snack's packaging makes it look bigger; an opinion poll is obviously one-sided; when you copy-paste a line from an article, the site adds a "read more" link for your "convenience." Don't express your impotent rage alone. Take it to Reddit's /r/assholedesign, a place to expose and discuss evil design tricks.

On the latest episode of The Upgrade, we're talking about the self-proclaimed "front page of the internet", the massive online community known as Reddit. For some, Reddit is a second home, a place to hang out, post links, chat and trash talk with like-minded friends and foes.
