If you were wondering what that clicking sound is, it’s the sweet clatter of college students all over the world procrastinating on their homework by hopping online for only five minutes.  I’m sure that’s what they intended to do before they opened twenty tabs that likely include Facebook, their email, and a random article that is currently amusing them.  It’s not that I condone avoiding schoolwork at all costs… what was I saying again?  Here is a collection of fun and engaging articles to aid you on your quest of academic self-destruction:
