So what do you do when bored...?

Probably not set fire to your place of work!
Quote
A teenage private schoolgirl who was 'fed up' of her work experience in a shop set fire to it, causing £1million damage, a court heard.
The girl, 15, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was working in a wilko shop, formerly known as Wilkinson's, in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, on placement from her fee-paying private school when she started the blaze with a cigarette lighter.

The article says she is an 'intelligent' student. That may be under question now - stupid girl.

Re: So what do you do when bored...?

I Wonder if boredom is more common in young people, I certainly remember being bored but I have never been bored for years as I  seem to have so much to do and less time to do it in.
NB: Although this does not prevent me from being boring.

I have to agree that the older you get the more you find things to fill your time.
Also, I'm happy to occasionally just sit down and do nothing in particular. I can't remember the last time I felt bored.
