Fast loading website suggestions?

Can you suggest some frequently-updated websites that work well on an older browser with a slow connection?

Currently I'm working a customer service role with very few customers and spend most of my time browsing the web. However most of the terminals only have older browsers (IE6) installed and the connection struggles with content-heavy sites. For example, metafilter and fmylife are fine but chow and newscientist take ages to load and frequently bug out. Can you suggest some other broad-subject websites that would work well on a slow connection and provide hours of mind-numbing-but-interesting word-based entertainment? I know this question is quite broad but if you spend hours at a time on a predominantly text-based website other than metafilter, I'd love to hear about it!
