Looking for a time killer that will annoy your co-workers, spouse or just about anyone within earshot of your computer's speakers?

Go to http://www.urban75.com/Mag/bubble.html for virtual bubble wrap that never gets used up. That's right--some genius has created a Flash application that simulates popping the plastic pustules of bubble wrap, complete with sound and visuals.

When that gets boring--after a few hours or so--click around the rest of the site for other useless games. Urban75 is a British site devoted to counter-culture topics.

We don't condone some of the site's obsessions, but diversions such as Outwit the Cossack or Japanese Name Converter are a great way to burn through a slow work day--and bother everyone around you in the process.
