    I need one. For the second day in a row my work's done by 11 and I'm stuck here til 5 with no one to talk to and nothing to do.

    "Ode to a Sadist" isn't getting very far, there's no news that's holding my attention, and I've trawled this place more times than I can count, reading posts going back to the dawn of time.

    I figured a bunch of lovely young men would be just the people to help out a damsel in distress! Any ideas?

    Unfortuately, it needs to be something I can do at work, and still be able to answer the phones.

  9. Done by 11?

    Can I get a job at your place, please?!

    You know what I find to be an interesting waste of time? Conspiracy theories. I once wasted almost an entire day reading about the USS Vicennes shooting down an Iran Air plane, fascinating.

    Try some office dares...



    ONE-POINT dares

    1. Ignore the first five people who say 'good morning' to you.
    2. To signal the end of a conversation, clamp your hands over your ears
    3. Leave your fly open for one hour. If anyone points it out, say,"Sorry,I really prefer it this way".
    4. Walk sideways to the photocopier.
    5. While riding in an lift, gasp dramatically every time the doors open.
    6. When in the lift with one other person, tap them on the shoulder and pretend it wasn't you.
    7. Finish all your sentences with "In accordance with the prophecy...
    8. Don't use any punctuation.
    9. Interrupt your conversation with someone by giving a huge dejected sigh.
    10. Use your highlighter pen on the computer screen.


    THREE-POINT dares

    1. Say to your boss, "I like your style", wink, and shoot him with double-barrelled fingers.
    2. Kneel in front of the water cooler and drink directly from the nozzle.
    3. Shout random numbers while someone is counting.

    4. Every time you get an email, shout ''email''.
    5. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has got over his or her caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
    6. Keep hole punching your finger. Each time you do, shout, "dagnamit, it's happened again!". Then do it again.
    7. Introduce yourself to a new colleague as "the office bicycle". Then wink and pout.
    8. Call I.T. helpdesk and tell them that you can't seem to access any pornography web sites.


    FIVE-POINT dares


    1. At the end of a meeting, suggest that, for once, it would be nice to conclude with the singing of the national anthem (extra points if you actually launch into it yourself).
    2. Walk into a very busy person's office and while they watch you with growing irritation, turn the light switch on/off 10 times.
    3. For an hour, refer to everyone you speak to as "Dave".
    4. Announce to everyone in a meeting that you "really have to go do a number two".
    5. When you've picked up a call, before speaking finish off some fake conversation with the words, ''she can abort it for all I care''.
    6. After every sentence, say 'Mon' in a really bad Jamaican accent. As in: "The report's on your desk, Mon." Keep this up for one hour.
    7. In a meeting or crowded situation, slap your forehead repeatedly and mutter, "Shut up, damn it, all of you just shut up!"
    8. At lunchtime, get down on your knees and announce, "As God is my witness, I'll never go hungry again!"
    9. Repeat the following conversation 10 times to the same person: "Do you hear that?" "What?" "Never mind, it's gone now."
    10. Present meeting attendees with a cup of coffee and biscuit; smash each biscuit with your fist.
    11. During the course of a meeting, slowly edge your chair towards the door.
    12. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.
    13. Ask people what sex they are. Laugh hysterically after they answer.
    14. While a colleague is writing, grab their pen and throw it out of the nearest open window.

    Emulators are good. The best ones i have used are Gens (For Sega genesis/megadrive era) and SNES9x which is also very good.

    There are loads of roms you can find online and they run perfectly on these emulators, although you may need to configure a controller/joypad.

    Gens is here: http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/genesis/gens.html
    SNES 9x is here: http://www.snes9x.com/downloads.php

    And the roms (for both).. http://www.romnation.net/srv/roms.html

    Enjoy.

    A 'damsel' is an old fashioned word for a woman who is regarded and polite and friendly, doesn't have a boyfriend and needs a good 'rescuing'. Typically, a chivalrous male type figure on his white horse would rescue a damsel and then probably go an giver her a good 'rescuing'.

    Fa'atau82 isnt zsnes is better than snes 9x? Kega Fusion is pretty good if you want to play genesis master system/32x and CD games as well.

    I haven't tried any others apart from SNES9x and Gens.

    Znes is the best, better compatibility overall.

    't is a lady.

    Might increase your boredom rather then cure it, but I find Wikipedia intresting, mostly random things(like finding out how stripes on toothpaste happen).

    Other than that, stumble was a great suggestion.

    If you're going to try th elist, make sure someone's competing with you, otherwise there's no point in counting points XD
