For those of you looking for pleasant procrastination tools: Since is a site that chronicles the origins of pop culture items - straight-back chairs, the Apple computer, the little cat sculptures that sit in the front of Asian restaurants. Did you know the Michelin Guide originated in 1900, and that Pez candy, a product of the late 20s, took its name from the German word for peppermint (that's pfefferminz, for those interested)? I didn't, either. It can't really be procrastinating if you're learning something new, right?
