Well, on Easter, I spent my free time exploring the relationship between rotational kinetic energy and angular momentum with my 18-month-old grandson.

[tex]KE_{rot}=\frac{1}{2}I \omega^2[/tex]


[tex]H=I \omega[/tex]

In other words, we spent the afternoon spinning all of his plastic Easter eggs (they stand up on their own as they naturally find a balance between rotational kinetic energy and angular momentum).

I've had a lot of free time of late. Due to the unique way things have shaped up for me, I'm bored!

I have so much free time on my hands
You could do my chores.

I mix music (DJ) in my spare time. On my turntables, or recently, with Ableton Live on my PC. I can get lost for hours at a time, it's great fun and a fine excuse to continually dig through all my old records!

I enjoy riding my bike too. Off-road. Downhill preferably, and FAST! :)

I read a metric f-ton of novels. Around one a week during the school year and four a week during the summer. Over the Christmas break all my exams were done early and I had almost a full four weeks off. I was pounding through a novel a day on my kindle.

Other than that I watch hockey (prerequisite for being Canadian) and pretend to know what I'm doing while playing with electronics.

Friday nights are when I go out and let off some steam, whether I want to or not.

Work on my main project: seeking to invent optimum contraption using all the junk in my cellar and nothing else.

Do any monkeys need spanking?

That should kill an hour a day.

I learn new skills such as magic, programming, solving puzzles, poems, learning new languages, reading some popular books etc. They are both enjoyable and useful. You kill your time but at the same time earn something that will last forever.

I also do small and big science projects and experiments.
