Bored? Listless? Help is at hand!

Are you bored? Does class seem pointless? Here's a list of some things you can do.

See how long you can hold your breath
(Amusement Potential: 4-20 minutes)
Not that much fun, but it sure passes the time. Play with a friend or try to beat your personal best. Some tips: hyperventilate before hand, and stay as still as possible.

Hurt yourself
(Amusement Potential:1-3 minutes)
What is pain? Why is it unpleasant? There's nothing physical about it- it's all in your mind. Plus, after pinching yourself for awhile, boredom will seem nice next to pain.

Pretend to be a car
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
Make appropriate revving noises in your head as you walk along and add a racing commentary as you pass strangers in the street. Use blinking eyes as indicators for extra authenticity.

Get yourself as nauseated as possible
(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes)
Best achieved by looking straight up and spinning around. Try to be so dizzy you can't even stand up. This is also entertaining due to the "makes boredom seem a lot better" effect. (see "Hurt Yourself")

More to come next week......

Nice list. I do beleive however that I used them all up in highschool. Even so, the eye indicators are a nice advancement to the classic "I am car" routine, but I dare not improve on the hurting yourself bit.
Still bored
