The day someone told me about StumbleUpon was the day any dream I had of overcoming my procrastination habit died. For those of you who don’t know what StumbleUpon is, it is a website that lets you discover things on the internet that you might not have come across before, based on things that interest you. And it most certainly does deliver.

It does require you to sign up (don’t worry, it’s free) and choose categories that you find interesting. And it certainly is interesting – it sucks you into this internet world where you want to keep looking at what they’re going to suggest. The one downside to it is that you can spend hours stumbling (not that I’ve done it before), but sometimes the things you come across are worth it.

Since I have spent ‘a few’ hours on StumbleUpon, I’ve decided to do a weekly StumbleUpon Museum post – an archive, per say, of the procrastinators dream. I’ll be going through and posting my favorite stumbles of the week, as well as the favorite stumbles of others. They could be anything from a funny picture to a thought provoking quote. Ultimately, if it strikes our fancy, you’ll most likely find it on here.

So, without further ado, here are ten stumbles from this past week, found by yours truly and another Scribble Manor writer, Eric Buenning.

Enjoy!
