Since Mouser and others seem to be very good at finding TWFG's, maybe we ought to have a separate thread or even forum heading for them. Here's my addition:
http://www.yarukinoki.net/flash/pendulumeca/
To get started, click and hold your mouse button which will send a cable to the roof for Pendulumeca to swing from. Too short, and he doesn't swing far. Too long, and he swings to the spikey floor. When he swings forward a bit, let go the mouse button and Pendulumeca will go flying. gravity will eventually bring him down and you will have to send another cable to continue swinging with. See how far you can swing Pendulumeca. I got 507 meters so far....

I warn you.. This is not a good idea.

You really made a good submission, Pendulumeca is a great game!

cool routing puzzle game - sure to fry your nerves

Quote
Global Player is a Flash game designed to test your skills at sorting packages and routing them to their proper destinations. Everything in the game is color coded, which is great unless you are colorblind as there is no provision for colorblindness in this game.

So, provided that you can indeed tell the difference between the colored packages, each level consists of a system of conveyor belts and switches, giving way to multiple destinations where transportation awaits to receive each package and send it on its way. The key is to route each colored package to the vehicle indicated by the same color. Click on the large arrow swiches where the conveyor belts intersect to change the direction the packages pass through.

Wait a minute.  Shouldn't the competition be about how much TIME was wasted playing these games?  Now, there's a competition I would have a chance of winning.

I haven't gone so far as to contemplate suicide over a game, but read this article if you are worried.

agh. Global Player. My eyes crossed before I wasted too much time. Reminds me some of Simutrans. Nice game, abandoned development. Here's a low-key but very time-wasting puzzle game: String avoider
http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/300760
Quote
Avoid colliding with walls and guide your string through each unique level. Time is of the essence as you must steadily travel through 26 levels to victory. Keep your hand steady and move it quickly, hoping your compulsive hand activities will pay off and make you one of the top 50.
I'm not much for violent games, but this one from the same folks was strangely entertaining...
Dad 'n Me

Basically you're the purple-costumed child of a purple-costumed super-villain and you beat up kids on the playground. Some of them fight back...

Try these, I nearly drove myself batty for... well... way too long before giving up. What you're doing is clicking on things to get them to do a rube-goldberg sort of scenario to achieve a goal. If you're nice, I'll tell you how I found the solution...

Check this one out, it has great sound effects, a chinise guy, who get more nervous as you make more moves! cheesy

Weirdness is a bonus, entertaining a requirement, but the emphasis is... TIME WASTING
