What to do when you are bored...

I was sitting here…bored (as usual)…thinking of what I could do. Then it struck me that I’m probably not the only person on CD who gets bored really easily. I figured I could see what others do so maybe it could help me when I’m bored out of my mind :yikes: , and people can try what I do. So yeah, what do you do when you are bored?

Some things I do are (when I’m not on CD):

A cool little news website: It shows news by how popular they are, and it has the news for different places in the world.

3D PONG! :smiley:

Myspace: I don’t think I need to explain this one…

I recommend going online and dowloading a demo of a hot new game.
Or surf through CD’s old threads.

I often find myself searching for FIRST videos on Google Video and Youtube.


If I’m really bored waiting for something big to download, and I have absolutely nothing to do, I usually find myself staring at some small object, throwing it around in the air, and think of the possibilities of what I can do with it other than throw it up and turn it in circles. These objects are usually spherical, circular, or just electronic bits that have no real use but they end up on my desk anyway.

When I’m bored I look around ChiefDelphi. When my internet connection is not working (which happens a lot) I work in the garage making robot parts, like filing aluminum sprockets by hand. :slight_smile:
