surfing for the bored

WebCollage: Exterminate All Rational Thought --Neato (and sometimes beautiful) page refreshed every minute or so. Every image is clickable, too. It finds the images by feeding random words into various search engines, and pulling images (or sections of images) out of the pages returned.
A very cool surfing tool for when you're bored of your usual web haunts (mefi excluded, of course)

delpino: Not Safe For Work

I loved that, it's made my bookmark list as well. I like the way you can lick on the images and go to the page it was found on. surprisingly little NSFW stuff considering those statistics you hear sometimes about the percentage of we stuff being naughty.

You know, a lot of people don't like Jamie Zawinski (Plastic Carl being one) but he continues to generate interesting things.

you do realize, amberglow, that by introducing this material, you have compromised the well-being of every mefite here and quite possibly threatened the very existence of mefi, don't you? ;)

I love a world where a purely random image search brings up this. (probably nsfw)

kewl, I made it my desktop 'web page' flashes a little, but sometimes it flashes a lot. ;)

You guys do realize that you can download this in screensaver form, right? Maybe its for Linux only. Oh well. :)

This is what the Internet looks like.

Cool.

That is the neatest thing - thanks, amberglow - and selecting by image rather than language makes for encounters with areas of with the non-English WWW I usually ignore ...

I like his cool old school matrix meets jodi style homepage. Anyone know how old webcollage is? I bookmarked it a year ago, but I thought I saw it on memepool before that. Link to non-clicky collage should you want to make a copy.

Re: NSFW. First time I click it and I get this (NSFW) graphic from a Japanese Penile Augmentation clinic. Hooray for WebCollage!

Great link, amberg
