Why not spend 5 minutes whatching and interacting with particles which swarm around a Mandelbrot Set...

Quiz of the day: Programming Language Inventor or Serial Killer?

In this quiz you have to decide if people are computer language inventors or serial killers. To be honest, they all look dodgy to me. I got 5/10!

One-button games

This page has a load of links to games that only use one (and sometimes two) button control methods. My favourite is "TwinSpin".

Wow! At you will find a collaborative art project which you basically can zoom into and ultimately it comes back on itself. You have to see it to understand it! You might think that there aren't 5 minutes of wasted time in this, however you should pause and look at the excellent (if slightly surreal) artwork as you fly through...
I'd recommend the flash version...

tangram game

This is a version of the tangram puzzle that you might have played with when you were a kid. Make the shaps using the pieces as quickly as you can to get big bonuses. It's surprisingly addictive and may well take up more that 5 minutes of your time! Thanks (again) to Ken for this...

Mr. Figgles

Mr. Figgles Web Game is a very good way to waste several minutes or 5. You guide a little ladybird/beetle type thing around picking up stars. The control method is quite original - move your mouse to where you want the beetle (I guess that's "Mr Figgles") and it'll go there, but to move around faster, you need to move further away from the target. Thanks to Ken for this one!
