Presenting the list of Very Random and Highly Geeky Signs of Boredom.

-Post a response to every single "What are you doing/eating/listening to etc?" themed topic and every single word game on the General Discussion threads on messageboards. Make your answers pointlessly thoughtful if you have lots of time to kill, detailing the exact amount of food you have ingested and recording your opinions on the music of Lady Gaga comparing it to Chopin if you can.

-Facestalking- click on a friend's profile and see if you can link 6 strangers in Six Degrees of Separation. You'll find out your sister's ex bf from high school knows your brother's current fiancee from Wales, or something like that.

-Watch 20 hours worth of The Tudors with friends, claiming it will help with your knowledge of history, yet the only thing you will learn from the tv show is that the Tudors appeared to spend half their time having sex.

-Stay up till 5am in morning baking in the kitchen, your loved ones will wake up to the smell of baking and a plate of freshly baked cookies that have magically appeared over night.

- Perform "Drunk!- The Live Action Musical!" Get drunk, skip home with friends like you're all from Wizard of Oz, singing songs from musicals and disney, get chased home by scary drunk Scottish couple, carry on singing while being chased- eg. singing "Oh F***, they're getting closer!" and "Oh h*** I can't find my keys!" while performing appropriate dramatic hand gestures and dance moves if possible. After having outrun your chasers and survived, end the musical bonanza with everyone singing a badly sung version of Little Mermaid's "I want to be where the people are!" singing it completely seriously and straightfaced as tho giving a news report.

-Try to watch youtube videos in 3D trying out different methods from 3d goggles to going cross eyed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-t0kuRTa-AU

-Learn how to raise one eyebrow, wiggle your ears or flare your nostrils.

-Read the entire archive of Hark, A Vagrant!, the hilarious historical webcomics by K. Beaton! http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=23 -"Where is Franklin?"

-Go to Syfy's TinMan website- get dizzy from the amazing and beautiful moving background on the site. www.syfy.com/tinman/oz/

-Wikipedia a random subject, keep reading till you find yourself suddenly to be a expert on Buddhist iconography or something else completely useless to your daily life. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mara_%28demon%29

-Play old nintendo game from when you were a kid, find that you still seem to be drawn into falling down pits. www.mariogame.info/

-Throw and fling photos around on the Etsy colour chart- http://www.etsy.com/color.php?ref=fp_nav_colors .

-Invent Crazy Pool/Snooker, dare your friends to sing beatles or jump up and down on one leg while trying to score.

-Play Crazy Rock/Paper/Scissors.

Rules-
1.Anything in existance or fiction can be chosen.
2.Once a subject has been chosen, it cannot be repeated by anyone again for that game.
3.Admit when you've lost. Rock will always beat scissors.
4.Represent your chosen subject with vivid hand gestures.
5.First to ten wins.

Find yourself arguing with friends over who would win between Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee, or Spock vs Gandalf, or if a volcanoe beats a t-rex. ( Realise that Blackhole beats everything....)


-Suddenly in the middle of the night have a fantastical epiphany about life that makes complete sense only to you, such as "Ah ha! Humanity's experience of time is like a pianist playing all the keys of a piano at once!" Proceed to wake up your sleeping spouse or partner to force tham to listen to your mad ramblings. In the morning wake up having completely forgotten your "groundbreaking" philosophical theory.

-Read too much Jane Austen, find yourself writing to your friends on msn like you live in Regency times.


-Write out a detailed list of your random signs of boredom, post it on Santharia messageboard. : p


Written by Ylva, in her state of boredom, please forgive these mad random ramblings and hopefully find comfort in them if you can. Please feel free to post own Signs of Boredom if you like, the more imaginative and random the better!  : P

- Begin writing the outline for an expository essay titled "How To Blow Your Nose Without Kleenex." Conduct research; ask friends about their methods, experiences, and alternative names for similar techniques. Ie: The "Camping Snort" is the same as the "Shower Nose-Blow."

- Compile a mental list of Public Washroom Etiquette and routine procedures for entering a stall, with a main focus on avoiding embarrassing situations such as having no toilet paper. Consider the sociological reasons for why these unspoken rules exist and how they affect your own public washroom experience.

- Light every available candle in your kitchen.

- Pull out a needle and thread and begin patching/mending all your clothes, accessories and equipment that you have put off mending until now.

- Observe the sprouting vegetables in your kitchen and take note of their anatomical structures, functions, biological processes, chemical composition, nutritional worth, possible level of fertilizer contaminants, variations in size, mutations, and the over-all 'happiness' level they seem to portray.

- Find all the different kinds of tea in your cupboards. Compare similar blends.

- Write out the recipe for the breakfast you just made yourself, complete with preparation, cook time, measurements and alternative ingredient options.

- Have the time of your life reading the encyclopedic dictionary - it has pictures! Then spend weeks in absolute amazement after learning that an apple core is a five-pointed star when cut cross-sectionally. Wonder why you've never realized this before and share it with everyone who'll listen. Also tell people that 'gnu' is another word for a wildebeest... those animals that killed Simba's dad.

- Use the big shiny lid from your wok and use it to pretend you're walking on the ceiling. Explore your whole house upside down, climbing over archways and stepping down into higher ceiling areas. Find all the cool little nooks where you'd like to build a fort.

- Engage family members in a surprise game of Peek-aboo. See how long it takes them to notice you ducking back and forth behind a wall while staring at them.

- Walk like a chameleon through a public room in your house - that is, take one step forward with your arms out and begin lurching back and forth a few times before taking another step forwards. The whole point is to confuse your predators about whether you're walking forwards or backwards. That way, if they attack, they might go for your tail instead of your head and you can escape. Also see how long it takes people to notice you.

- Spend hours formatting hilarious IRC conversations that made you laugh into an email. Include color, italics and side-notes so that the recipient can understand the full context of any inside jokes or previous history hidden between the lines.

- Water every plant in your house and ask them how their day has been.

Just a few of my own geeky signs of boredom :D However I'll admit I never really get 'bored', I just get 'restless'  ^.^ I seem to find that significantly different.

Read through a webcomic you've already read through, taking note of the terrible artwork, writing or similar development until you realize that, yes, this has come quite a long way.

Start reading a new webcomic. The older the better. That way it will last you through later stints of boredom

Write a new character. Painstakingly research details and nuances for the history and other sections. Devise grand and intricate systems of strengths and then realize that it won't work or forget to post it.

Find that character you wrote last time you were bored. Realize that it's a piece of junk and rewrite and re-research entire sections of this character. Realize you've made a glaring error and that the character now no longer resembles the original concept.

Watch DVDs or TV series with commentary.

Spend twenty minutes looking up facts for an argument you were having on wikipedia. Click and read so many links that you can't quite remember what it was you were looking up in the first place.

Attempt to convince yourself of the inherent wrongness of technological piracy.

Attempt to convince yourself of the inherent rightness of piracy.

Browse TV Tropes aimlessly (warning: could very well consume entire hours of time.)

Note to the empty room "Ah. I see what you did there."

Add to the list.

Whoever said being an expert on Buddhist iconography was completely useless? Them's fighting words :P
