Anybody know of anything fun to do when bored?

Better yet, who are the most active people on DDO? I can friend them and just watch my feed...

Also, give me some FPS titles I could look at on Steam. I play Arctic Combat right now and love it, but it gets tiring to just play the same maps over and over...

Read a book?
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Watch the anime series "Haibane Renmei" and "The Third: The Girl with the Blue Eye." "Rurouni Kenshin" is also fun. These are thoughtful and interesting, not the Naruto genre.

Everyone should read some of the old science fiction classics like Heinlein's "Stranger in a Strange Land," Asimov's "Foundation" trilogy, and Nevin's "Ringwold."

Xbox, reading, mafia, have sex, go hiking, go to the gym, start some fun debates, find a hobby, make money, watch Dexter, watch breaking bad, watch the walking dead. These are the things I do for fun.

Naruto was thoughtful and interesting at first......

Then it started to go to sh!t after the wave arc.

I grok ya, and I totally agree.

It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

Find a good RTS, they can be awesome. Combat Arms is a pretty good multiplayer FPS for the PC, not taxing at all graphically.

Books wise, I would look up the Inheritence cycle, Percy Jackson series + the extended book series, Harry Potter, evidently Song of Ice and Fire is good. I would recommend getting a different interest though.

Have it. Wasn't a huge fan because I had spent so much time on AC

I have read the bold. Harry Potter I read twice

What state do you live in? And I can see their being a gym nearby somewhere. Ask your parents, sure they would be thrilled, hopefully.

Same. I'm gonna start Song of Ice and Fire.

Have you read the Nicholas Flamel series? The first book is called the Alchemyst.

Actually my mom goes to the gym quite often, she just always picks the hour I am busy or at a friends house.

sleep,

all the time already

go running,

I run cross country

work on core,

am about 2nd in class for most sit ups in a minute

extra curricular activities,

Yearbook, sports, I did ASB once, am going to be in a gaming club next year, some summer classes at Digipen, along with some summer school for extra credits in HS

get involved in local government (if you are interested),

USoDDO - I am one of the most active

text,

I never know what to text :/

see a good movie at your local theater.

can't drive, otherwise I would have seen the whole selection

Lucky you. You could review your work or study for an upcoming test to improve your grades and GPA.

sleep,

all the time already

Lucky. Getting 8 1/2 hours a night is awesome for a school night.

go running,

I run cross country

Awesome, so do I. You probably do this, but run off season to stay in shape, to remain fit and competitive. So run by yourself or with others year round.

work on core,

am about 2nd in class for most sit ups in a minute

Why aren't you first? Haha kidding. Other core exercises include push ups, leg lifts, planks (real), jackknives (really awesome for your core), and my favorite, chin ups.


extra curricular activities,

Yearbook, sports, I did ASB once, am going to be in a gaming club next year, some summer classes at Digipen, along with some summer school for extra credits in HS

Ok that is a lot. Other ideas could be Quizbowl, debate team, or student council. Assuming your school has these programs.

Understandable. I need to know the person better before I can text them much.

GPA is almost always 4.0, and I have had straight As all but 4 trimesters(out of 8), and only once was there more than 1 A-

Sorry, I actually don't get a ton of sleep at night... I take like hour long naps random days

I run cross country

Awesome, so do I. You probably do this, but run off season to stay in shape, to remain fit and competitive. So run by yourself or with others year round.

I run on the treadmill, and run my dog

I thought that was why I joined this site.

get involved in local government (if you are interested),

USoDDO - I am one of the most active

What is that if I may ask?

Check the games tab under forums. It is basically a fake government for DDO.

text,

Understandable. I need to know the person better before I can text them much.

Honestly I only touch my phone once or twice a week. That is how little I am on it.

Try to exercise so you can take me in a physical fight. That's probably the hardest task for you, considering I am indescribably powerful, physically.

Hmm, that must have been a bit too harsh of an interjection. But then again, considering whom it's addressed to...;)
