    Keep up with news (mainly BBC and Canadian newspapers, but occasionally CNN and MSNBC), sports, and weather; listen to the radio; read physics blogs; check the arXiv; other stuff.

    Play games, read the news, video chat with family and keep in touch with friends by e-mail.

    I want to "work" at work, but I'm just an intern and they have nothing for me to do. When I keep bugging them about giving me stuff to do they give me busy work (ie. take this book and copy it :rolleyes:). So I stopped asking for stuff to do.

    Wikipedia, physics, paleoclimatology, email, psychology, news, bittorrenting, but when I have a lot of time off I do play a few hours of online multiplayer games—CS and Halo.

    I say if you can't separate work from not work, you're doing good!

    I check my emails, check nature.com, and then I trade imaginary movie stocks on Hollywood Stock Exchange (HSX). If you are interested, go to http://www.hsx.com. Of coarse, if you are going to sign up, mention that I (PRodQuanta) directed you there (for a free 100,000 hsx bucks in my account!!!).

    I've actually made an issue with my work and refused to do busy work, they know they can't make someone do something that achieves nothing so they don't make me do it any more. Whoever came up with the idea that the hours you work you should be constantly doing something is a moron, seriously it's the most retarded practice I've ever heard of, and that sort of work culture is self defeating. Of course your not paid to do nothing but there's nothing in your contract that says you should be paid to acheive nothing either and a swift chat with your union will confirm this, in my country at least if they make you do some demeaning busy work, don't do it. Fight the power :smile: mind you be careful it's all very well standing up for a principle, but it's not worth losing your job over, unless your job sucks of course. If the job your paid to do doesn't fill out your day, that's the employees problem not yours. Solidarity brothers :smile: just remember who'll be first against the wall come the revolution.
