July 1st, 2012 · No Comments · Fun and Humor, Technology

May 27th, 2012 · Comments Off · Fun and Humor

Waste time?  Who….me?  Seriously, who doesn’t!  But sometimes you have to sift through mindless websites to find a quality item to waste your time on productively.  To save time (ironically) check out the Epic Win website - which in our time-wasting humble opinion has clips or images that are funny, silly, or amusing about 99% of the [...]
