My favorite web comics have really brought the funny stuff lately. Here are a couple things to keep you occupied in your idle time that I think you’ll like (assuming, of course, that you’re a bit of a geek like me).
Randall Munroe drew an simply beautiful answer to the question, “How high is high?” Take a look and tell me, seriously, that you’re not impressed. It’s also accurate, according to the creator, on a logarithmic scale, too. If that kind of thing is important to you.
If you’re looking for a little time to kill, why not play the Large Hadron Collider game? You’ll need a few things, but they’re nothing that most folks don’t have around the house anyhow; or, in my case, my desk drawer at work.
What? Doesn’t everyone have a couple dice and a deck of cards tucked away for those quiet hours at the office? No, I’m not running an illegal casino? Why do you ask?
Anyhow, enjoy the game and beware the Evil Space Marmots.
