    At work, i'm usualy surfiing macrumors forum, newtribe.ca's forum or slashdot.

    Also, i read ctrlaltdel-online.com comics or pennyarcade.

    sometimes i also make darts out of pushpins and paper and throw them at my co-workers.

    If you do the bit where you just stare at your desk, it helps to make sure your computer screen is on...

    I kick it on here...jam out on the iPod. Scope out some of my favorite sites, maybe read through some old Penny Arcade or Apple Geeks. Or look through some crazy stuff on Fazed. My PC at work has a DVD player in it so sometimes I will have a video going while I "work"

    On rare occasions I actually work

    I'm an ALT (Assitant Language Teacher) and usually have nothing to do from about 12pm until when I can go home at 4pm. At some schools I can connect to the network, at others I can't, so I have a wireless internet setup that I use (wireless USB modem, so it's dial-up but at 128k.) Usually I'm still bored off my nuts, though.

    Get MAME, that should keep you busy for a while.

    What kind of work do people do where they can do nothing all day? Care to enlighten? :)

    While bored at work try this: go to the bathroom, close the stall door and masturbate. ;)

    ...and get fired, if not arrested. What a great idea!

    If possible, hell I know plenty of people who do this and never get fired - of course do not advertise it. You have to pretend to be "taking a dump". :rolleyes:

    Question: Do they have cameras in the stalls?

    Answer: No

    I JERK OFF EVERY DAY INSTEAD OF TAKING A COFFEE BREAK


    I do that almost every day. I have a very sexy co-worker who frequently comes in to the office dressed in tight sweaters and leather skirts. The way she dresses really shows off her attributes and that gets my attention.

    I'd ask her out but that just aint gonna happen since she's married AND MY BOSS! I'm certain if she knew that I jerked off thinking about her, she'd fire me.

    Wow this thread went into the crapper REAL QUICK.

    My suggestion would be to surf www.monster.com for a job that won't bore your nuts off.

    I sincerely hope you're joking. :rolleyes:

    I try to avoid web sites like "bored.com" and such. In case the boss is actually monitoring what sites you go to, you're just asking for it. Then again, if the boss is monitoring what sites you go to, they could follow this URL and find out what you guys do (or don't do) at work!

    Fortunately, I don't think my boss is that tech-savvy anyway, and all the others in the office are just as guilty, so no one's gonna volunteer to tell the boss about how to monitor us... :p
