What to do when bored on the internet? Answered

Right now, I'm sick. Pretty much not willing to get out of my chair. I've been trolling the internet aimlessly for hours, and I'm quite frankly tired of it. Any suggestions on interesting Instructables-type sites? Or any other science/DIY/art sites? Just something interesting.

TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life. I highly recommend it. Not science or DIY, but it does deal extensively with the literary and dramatic arts, and is funny as @#$%.

Nice. The site's very funny, but a bit hard to use. It will keep me busy though.

Your best bet is to just pick an article or category that appeals to you, and Wiki Surf from there. You never know where you'll wind up, or how long it will take the rescue dogs to find you....

I finally got over my illness, and I'm happy to say that all the suggestions kept me busy, but the one I liked best was definitely TV Tropes. Thanks everybody!
