It's relatively easy to stumble across some pretty weird stuff online just by browsing social networks, visiting shopping sites or checking out Google search results, but when it comes to the weirdest of the web, there are all sorts of dedicated sites out there that will leave you scratching your head in ultimate confusion.

Whether you're looking for something to help pass the time or you're just curious about how weird the internet can really get, you won't be disappointed by some of the unique and strange websites in the list below.

This website will probably do nothing but frustrate you. It features a collection of common household objects that have been modified to be totally dysfunctional on purse.

What We Like:

  • The creativity behind each object's deliberate inconvenience.

What We Don't Like:

  • It's a small collection so you'll browse through it quickly.

Here's a website where people submit some of the weirdest emails they wrote and meant to send, but never did. Just click on any message to expand it and read it yourself. You're even encouraged to submit your own (anonymously) if you have any.

What We Like:

  • Some of the forgotten emails are very deep, emotional and relatable.

What We Don't Like:

  • There are only 181 emails to read and we wish there were more.

Commercial ads and pop cultural trends aren't what they used to be, but this site goes beyond the typical vintage trends to dig up the really weird ones. It features all sorts of images that will make you wonder what in the world the artist or advertiser was trying to accomplish.

What We Like:

  • This site is actually a Tumblr blog, so you can follow it on Tumblr to see new posts in your dashboard.

What We Don't Like:

  • The blog only sees a few new posts a month at best.

Technology has changed dramatically even just over the course of the last decade, but most people can think back even further and remember old gadgets or gizmos that were considered state of the art at the time. From AIM and ICQ, to the original Nintendo game system and Tamagotchi virtual pets, this site has all those classic sounds that can never truly be forgotten.

What We Like:

  • It's nice to see a small animation effect of each sound's image once you click to listen to it.

What We Don't Like:

  • With just 33 sounds in the museum, we wish there were more.

Zoomquilt.org is perhaps one of the most creative weird websites on this list, presenting you with an image that keeps zooming in on various things. Each part of the image reveals something new and never seems to end. 

What We Like:

  • The artistry behind every illustration is brilliant and a real pleasure to look at.

What We Don't Like:

  • ​No mystical background music to go with the stunning illustrations.

If you ever hit "I'm Feeling Lucky" on a Google search, you were automatically taken to the first search result for your search term. Feeling Unlucky aims to do the complete opposite—taking you to the last search result. 

What We Like:

  • There's a convenient search result summary box you get when you enter in a search.

What We Don't Like:

  • Results probably aren't very accurate.

Remember back in the day when it was all the rage to have your very own Geocities website? The iconic website platform lives on through the Geocities-izer, which allows you to input any web address to see how it might look like as a Geocities site.

What We Like:

  • The retro GIFs and background music make each Geocities transformation feel extra nostalgic.

What We Don't Like:

  • ​Some websites (including Lifewire) are too advanced in design for the Geocities-izer to give it a proper transformation.

When life feels like it's giving you more than you can handle, it can be nice to have an imaginary button to press to make it feel like everything is going to be fine. This website is simply a trick for your mind. Even though it does nothing to solve your problems, it might at least help calm your thoughts and emotions a bit.

What We Like:

  • The progress bar that creates the illusion of everything becoming OK.

What We Don't Like:

  • ​An annoying popup ad appears after you click Continue on the Everything is OK now message box.

Want to make a contribution to the world's largest data doodling set to help a neural network learn to identify drawings? Well, now you can. You'll be given a simple thing to draw in 20 seconds while a computer tries to guess the thing you're drawing.

What We Like:

  • The automatic guesses made by the computer are super amusing.

What We Don't Like:

  • ​Nothing! This website is ridiculously fun.
A screenshot of TerribleColors.com.

There are certain colors that rarely ever look good on on websites. TerribleColors.com features a collection of the worst. Just roll your cursor over a color to see it in full and decide for yourself whether it's really that bad.

What We Like:

  • The automatic copy function when you click on a color.

What We Don't Like:

  • ​Too small of a selection. We know there are more terrible colors out there!
A screenshot of TheWorldsWorstWebsiteEver.com.

Just for the fun of it, The World's Worst Website features everything you could possibly think of to make a website look bad. From the unreadable text and distracting GIFs, to the badly placed blocks of text and the repeating image background, this website makes almost every other bad website actually look okay.

What We Like:

What We Don't Like:

  • We wish there were additional pages to this site that showed us more of what bad design really looks like.
A screenshot of TomatoesAreEvil.com.

Some people don't like tomatoes. Others think they're pure evil, which is why this website seems to exist. Read evil facts about the red fruit, find tomato-free recipes, play tomato hating games, read comments left by other tomato haters and even purchase evil tomato T-shirts from the stop.

What We Like:

  • The community is surprisingly active as seen by the many recent comments left on the Comments page.

What We Don't Like:

  • ​The games require Flash to be installed, which will soon be discontinued.
A screenshot of DroneSweaters.com.

If you enjoy flying your drone during colder temperatures, you might want to consider buying it a sweater to keep it warm. That's right—this site specializes in crafting stylish, wool-blend sweaters specifically made for drones according to model, size and even age. 

What We Like:

  • The drone sweaters are high-quality and come in a variety of colors, patterns and styles.

What We Don't Like:

  • ​It costs at least $89 for a drone sweater, so if you want a specific size or pattern and need it to be shipped out to you, don't expect it to be cheap!
A screenshot of Bristlr.com.

Some people really, really, really like beards. Bristlr was launched to help bearded people connect with other beard enthusiasts. Just like other popular dating sites, you can filters your results by location, age and of course whether or not they have a beard.

What We Like:

What We Don't Like:

  • Most of the community appears to be inactive and the mobile apps haven't been updated in a long time.
A screenshot of OozeMove.com.

We saved one of the weirdest for last. Whether you're stressed out at work or just want to zone out at home, Ooze Move offers a uniquely weird wave of colorful movement for you to do it. Just sit back and let your eyes follow the changing flow of color across the screen.

What We Like:

  • The smooth way the colors shift as they move.

What We Don't Like:

  • ​Not a thing. It's perfectly weird!
