I need something to waste time on,

    and not video games.

    I'm thinking something like a rocket launch, but Arizona's not the best place for one of those.

    Something physics-related, where I have to work out long and complex equations, any ideas?

    Try and figure out Fermat's last theorem. It might take you awhile.

    <_< What was his first one?

    Does it require anything beyond Algebra? I'm currently being (school)taught that(College algebra), and I have little Geometry, trig, or calc.

    Maybe I should learn Trig n Calc on my own. Any ideas where to start?

    A couple things I've always wanted to do:

    Make a Trebuchet (sp?) - its those big catapult/slings
    Make a potato gun.

    I made a couple of trebuchets. always a good waste of time.
    I have one in my closet right now, it's disassembled though because it tried to rip my nose off.
