Top 10 things to do when you are bored

Here's an attempt to do something when you are bored. Hope this is useful:

10) Go to sleep. Believe me, the best time killer in the world is nothing but sleep. A good sleep can easily kill time and also rejuvenate you to do something better later on. But the thing is, if you have nothing to do even after you wake up, then I dont know why you woke up so soon in the first place. Sleep until you got something to do

9) TV: Watch any one of the following channels depending upon your mood:

i) Discovery channel : If you get a feeling everyone knows something more than you do about the world. Don't watch it if that is not the case. Never.Ever. Don't watch this channel because your dad asked you to. He does not watch it himself.
ii) Star World: If "Friends" is going on, then this is a must watch. Kills your time off easily. You dont know where the half hour flew. Otherwise, people who want to do some birdwatching and are lazy to go and watch it in the real world, can wait for Baywatchers and VIPs.
iii) Star Sports : Huh? I was lazy to play, so I want to see someone else play.
iV) Ftv/Trendz : Won't they ever get tired to walk down that aisle a million times a day.. Do they show anything else other than semi clad women walking up and down all day? A good channel to watch in between advertisements maybe, but can't spend more than 5 continuous minutes on the same.
v) CNBC : Recently started to trade online. So I am watching this. Good to pick some stock tips

8) Irritate the colleague you hate:

This is probably the best pass-time.

How to do it?

Ask him how he performed in the interview which he attended in the new company before other colleagues (would work best if his manager is around)

7) Email

Reading junk mail which you would never have read had you been busy in the first place.

6) Irritate Call Center/Bank People

How many times have you put the phone down saying "I am not interested in a bank loan". Well it is time you had your revenge. The next time someone calls you up, note down that number. You call them up instead and ask them if they are interested in a bank loan. is that for a revenge...

5) Handling Jemailers (J for Junk)

How you wished you could get back at people who sent you huge attachments. Well, heres what you do, put them in your email forward list titled "People I hate". Send out all those 3 MB + sized emails to this group. Do it 3-4 times a day. In case you know something about email protocols and stuff, send it from an anonymous id, so they dont know who is bugging them. Still better would be to write a java code which runs everyday and sends about 10-100 mails (randomly chosen from a directory) to these people.

4) Computer Games:

Those who are yet to start gaming, do it now. It is not late, there is still time for you to improve. Those who are already avid gamers, might I suggest Real Time Strategy?

3) Girls

Nice pass time. In fact I would rate this one as 9/10 as far as pass time is concerned. Those who dont have any links, go get one fast. Those who are too shy to do it, I can only give u 9 things to do when you are bored. Sorry bout that.
