50 Things To Do If You Are Bored

Now, I know that none of you are ever bored. I'm sure you have millions of extremely important uses for your time, and I know that you plan your time very carefully so that you don't have a single "what on earth shall I do now?" moment.
However, maybe, just maybe, you might find yourself wondering what to do with ten minutes. Or even a stray ten seconds. Next time you get a few spare moments, think back to this list and pick an item.
This list is arranged in three parts: hour fillers, minute fillers and second fillers. Surely that's self explanatory! :)
