Most websites exist on the Internet to help you learn something, get something done, entertain you, share stuff or communicate with others. Why in the world would anyone visit a website that doesn't let you do any of these things? 

Surely, a website must exist to serve some kind of useful purpose -- right? Well, maybe not. The Internet is actually full of random sites that don't really help you do anything.

In the following list, you'll find links to just 10 of the many useless websites you can find on the Internet. And you'd be surprised to see how much traffic these websites actually see on a monthly basis.

I guess that most of these sites could arguably fall under the entertainment category of actually serving a purpose online, because they are amusing to visit, but in general, they're all still all pretty useless. If you've got some time to kill, go ahead and check them out.
