The Pointer Pointer Site is Perfect For Passing Time

Whether it be by scrolling through Internet memes or perusing Facebook, everybody has their chosen way of procrastinating at the computer, and the Pointer Point site gives you a new outlet to do so.

The premise of the webpage is quite simple -- move your cursor around and once you hold it stationary for a few moments, a picture will appear, showing a photo of somebody pointing at your cursor. Each time you move your pointer to a different location, an often a candid photo appears, hilariously out of context. Many pictures feature young partiers, with the occasional awkward shot framing your mouse cursor.

The novelty behind this concept is the prospect of getting something new each time, and though it may seem pointless to begin with, like with Facebook, you would be surprised how much time you can spend on it. Stats for Cursor-Highlighting Procrastination Pages Trending: Older & Chilly
