Worried you’re not wasting enough time online? I’ve got the solution. GigaPan is a website where people share extremely hi-res (gigapixel!) panoramic photos. You can see people’s photos from all over the world.
It’s the gigapixel aspect that makes this more exciting than Flickr and other photo-sharing sites. For example, click here to see GeorgeB’s gigaphotos. Select his New York skyline photo. Now click the thumbnail “snapshot” with the boat in it and see how you can zoom in so closely that you can read the writing on the boat! Amazing, right?
For a different kind of giga-experience, here’s Family Guy‘s Quagmire and his catchphrase:
UPDATED TO ADD: I just noticed that a lot of my favorite Family Guy clips are suddenly on YouTube. I was desperately searching for this one while writing my WWII post.
“You suck! You suck!”
Stewie’s “Where’s my money?” attack on Brian is MrB’s fave.
“Don’t make a fool out of me, man!”
And I’ve become fascinated by “Cool Hwip” thanks to this one.
“You’re eating hair!”

Wow, makes me feel like I’m on a cop show, “can you zoom in and enhance that license plate?” Very cool.
But second favorite online time waster (after Polyvore) is GoogleMaps. (Yes, I’m a nerd.)

Thanks for doing your best to get me to spend more time on line. I just don’t spend enough. I am guessing only 4-5 hours a day. Not enough.huh?

Great view of NYC – I’m steering clear of this distraction!!
that’s crazy! i felt like a spy zooming in and seeing some dude on the dock. like, “that’s him, alright. let’s move!”
Miss Janey says
Yee haw! Another morning spent roaming the Interwebs wilderness for new and wonderful discoveries.
GeorgeB’s photos are brilliant! I zoomed into one of the cranes to try to get a look at the construction.
Cool app! I can waste even more time finding live webcam broadcasts of Paris. So I can sit and watch twilight fall on rue Rivoli. But I will also watch an African savannah and a Scottish farm yard.
wow, gigapan has some amazing stuff in there.
Sending to my boyfriend now. He’s taken quite a few panoramic shots lately so I know he’ll appreciate this.

Peanut butter jelly time! From Family guy lol
Here’s the clip to that, Maya:
I love Family Guy!! You've managed to round up my most favorite momments! Did you see the Stewie Paradory of the Grape Stomp lady? It's on JustJared.com <3
Just type in Family Guy.
Fashion Girl, I was watching that earlier today! The way it exactly follows the original (who was that poor lady?) is hilarious!
Where’s my money man? is my absolute fave too.
Even though I had never watched in English before (!) the “where is my money?” scene is one of my favourites too.
Linda Famularcano says

I was laughing so out loud at all of those clips – my fave is “cool hwip”! Love it!
