They don't bother me. I take them as a sign that my brain is firing on all cylinders, which has to be a good thing. So I don't resist the creativity. I just take a short break from the WIP (for me, it never needs more than a day) and empty my brain about the new idea into a new file. Once that's done, I close the file and return to my WIP. It works every time for me.
First is the list site TopTenz. The list that attracted my attention is Top 10 Bizarre & Controversial Archeological Discoveries http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-bizarre-archeological-discoveries.php . I had to drag myself away from that page before it forced me to take a more than temporary leave of my WIP.
Next comes The Retronaut, and this delicious photo series of London in February 1944, during the Blackout: http://www.howtobearetronaut.com/2010/06/london-blackout-february-1944/
Finally, here is the hilarious Texts From Last Night, a new and guilty pleasure that threatens to become a serious timesuck: http://textsfromlastnight.com/
