What do you do.....

.....when you are bored?

I usually go to Lucasforums and some other forums, play Baseball, Map JA, or listen to music.

So, what do you do when you are bored?

It sucks to be bored, huh?

Well, in the case of boredom, I draw, then when that's become boring, I try to find something that'll either get me to laugh, or satisfy my appetite for excitement by watching a good movie (or listening to good music, for that matter).

Something that involves a little action.

I'm never bored, because there's always something to do.

That's not to say that sometimes I'm not lethargic, and don't want to do anything at all.

Simple, make your life busy

Things I do to get around the boredom:
I recently started with 3D modeling so I´m playing with my max a lot. I´m also more into to designing stage with Illustrator so that helps aswell. I play guitar, I draw now and then, I do some sports, juggle, go out with friends, play CoD, search usefull info on things, ...

As you can see everything helps

I completely agree with this statement. Nah, work is not that bad, but it's close. I recently purchased the major league baseball package for satellite, now I get to watch every game all across the country. Well, of course, I just watch the best ones anyways. So I don't get bored very often......if I do, I just start drinking beer or something, then instantly, boredom goes away.

Note: If you're under the legal drinking age, don't try this at home :P

The game was awesome! Nomar hit it all the way to the top of the Green Monster, almost a homerun, but he still got a double and 2 RBI's from it. ^_^

I think the final score was 3-9, Boston.

Good Call. Then you can be caught up with me. .

Good Idea. A lot of kids learn to code at your age. Including me . You should talk to mongo about messing with the code on his "other" ssbmtc forums. The java will be good to know since it is based on c and c++ but php is where the internet is really going these days,

cheers,

To quote ATHF:"I don't need to learn in order to know how ROCK!", or something like that.

Is it going to be a Rock history-type-of-page, or a shrine dedicated to a certain band, or is it going to be just an average all-rock website? I'd like to know because I'm curious as to what you're going to do with it.

I visit LF alot when bored, play video games often, go out and play tennis, maybe play some hockey, watch movies with my girlfriend, hang out with friends, on occasion I'll write little programs to keep my coding skills mildly intact over the summer, etc. etc.

Basically a shrine, i guess you could say. ^_^ It's gonna have the band I'm interested in (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Guns N Roses, Led Zeppelin, etc....). There will probably be band history, lyrics, midis, pics, videos, and stuff like that.

If you love Diablo I, you'll LOVE Diablo II. Its just so much better, it's hard to like Diablo because Diablo II is so much better.

And, if you play Diablo II on US-East Non-Ladder, I'll hook you up with some good items.

If you can, buy the Battle Chest. Comes With Diablo, Diablo II, Diablo II Expansion Pack, and the strategy guide (Which is actually pretty helpful for figuring out how you want to build your char)

Whatever way you do it, make sure you get D2 and Lord of Destruction, the expansion pack. The Battlechest is about 40 bucks, btw.

40 dollars? Are you insane? I'll go back to EB games and pick up Diablo II for 13 bucks, and careful shopping could get me the expansion for like 10.


I'd really like to pick it up, but school is starting soon, and with Fable and Halo 2 on the horizon, my gaming calendar is booked

I guess. Diablo II is from..... 1999 I think. And the x-pac game out 2001, so it is pretty old as gaming goes.

EDIT - I'd like to say, it has a TON of reply value. There are 7 charecter classes:
Palidin
Druid
Barbarian
Necromancer
Sorceress
Amazon
Assassin

Paladins are the Holy Warriors. They are experts in combat (with melee attacks, which could be using their sword or even shield, and holy attacks which include sending a holy bolt of lightn ing straight into your enemy) and have spevials skills called "Auras". Each Aura does something different, but only one can be on at a time.

Druids use the land as their weapon. They can cast out Fire and Wind attacks, such as volcanoes, hurricanes, and even Armagedons. They can also call out for animals to help them, like wolves and bears. The druid can even turn into a werewolf or a werebear!

Barbarians are the ultime melee combats. Their brute strength alows them to swings two weapons at once. They also have War cries, which increase certain things like life, mana, and damage.

Necromancers have control over the dead. They can summon golems and skeletons from corpses. They also can use curses (like Amplify damage, which increase damage given) and Posion and Bone attacks (such as Bone Spear or Posion Nova)

Sorceresses are the least strongest, but make up for it with their awesome magic abiltiies. They can use fire, ice, or lightning. The sorceress can even teleport to avoid being hit!

Amazons have mastered the use of bows and spears. They hav e the ability to throw lightning javelins, or shoot arrows that follow your target.

Assassins are actually female. They are masters in the Martial Arts. They can also use shadow diciplines like casting a shadow warrior, burst of speed, or mind blast. They can also set traps that kill your enemies.

Diablo II has the stat system like Diablo I, where you get 5 stat points for every level, and get to choose if you put them in Strength, Dexterity, Vitality, or Energy. But, there are also skill points. One is awarded for every level, and can be used for some of the skills listed above. There are about 30 skills for each type of charecter, and each skill can have a max of 20 put into them (but you can get skill bonuses from items you have. ). The highest lvl your charecter can be is lvl 99, but most people stop around 85 because it is hard to lvl after that.

Yes, it's a good game, and yes I wrote all this. Go buy it now.

I play xbox and listen to music. And come and hang out here. that's about all i ever do cause i'm bored all the damn time, and I got no friends within a state of me. XD


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.
