You can find just about anything on Reddit, for better or worse.

I’m not sure this DIY extruder meats those criteria.

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.

Reddit chat rooms are here.

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.

If you've forgotten how to waste time online, try these sites and happily while away the hours.
