With millions of published web pages, the internet is full of weird websites. Although most of these silly, seemingly useless, websites aren’t website-building masterpieces, they are incredibly creative.

If you like wasting time browsing the world wide web, you’ve probably stumbled across one or two of these sites. If not, and you have no idea what we’re talking about, you’re in for a treat!

We’re going to share with you a handful of the craziest websites on the internet right now.

Weird Websites for Wasting Time

People of Walmart

People-of-Walmart
 

If you’ve ever seen the memes online about “the people of Wal-Mart” then you already know what this website is about. The name is self-explanatory.

The entire website is just a series of pictures of the United States most eccentric Wal-Mart shoppers. It’s a simple concept, and entertaining at the same time.

The site is actually one of the most popular weird websites on the internet, with millions of views.

Quick, Draw!

quick-draw
 

In its simplest form, Quick, Daw! is a game that uses machine learning techniques for entertainment purposes. The game is basically Pictionary, except that your opponent is the computer network.

You’re given a silly word or idea and have to draw it. While you’re drawing it, the network will ask you questions and try to guess what you’re drawing. The more you play, the better the network gets at guessing.

Pointer Pointer

pointer
 

Pointer Pointer doesn’t have any real purpose. It is, however, a little bit freaky.

All you do is move your pointer around on the screen. Wherever you move it, there will be an image of a person pointing at it.

Why? We don’t know.

TheUselessWeb.com

theuseless-website
 

This website alone will generate so many pointless websites that the research for this article becomes redundant!

All you do is click “Please”, then, you’re taken to an often-regrettable website of the network’s choosing.

fallingfalling.com

fallingfalling.com
 

If you’re looking to be baffled for a few seconds, this site will accomplish just that. The website consists of a single webpage that features a number of shapes “falling” into one another on an endless loop.

Of course, the shapes are brightly colored and moving quickly so they play tricks on your eyes, all accompanied by strangely hypnotic music.

This is Sand

This-is-Sand
 

Visitors to this site are treated with the opportunity to draw digital photos with digital sand. The process is simple and relaxing and, for many people, it’s a great way to reduce stress for a few minutes.

Geoguessr

Geoguessr
 

This website is terribly addictive and time-consuming.
