Have you ever had a boredom that was so epic that you just had to do or make something? O_o

A few years ago I worked for AT&T DSL Tier 2 tech support.
Inbetween calls and even during slow calls it would get so boring that everyone who worked there would have to start getting creative to fight off the boredom.

We couldn't surf the web, so at first I just read magazines. Then I started to make tons of origami.

Once my desk got full of those I started to make these...

I made the 2 story house first. It is 3 pieces, bottom floor, top floor and roof.

I tried to be creative with some of the pieces. Like the pc in the living room has a mouse, keyboard and tower and in the bedroom the dresser has working drawers that slide in and out.

Next I made a "Quick Stop Groceries". I made it to be a semi replica of the one in the movie Clerks.

I wanted to have more function to this one, so I added alot more moving parts. All the doors, even the small ones can all open and close. I used pieces of staples for hinges. And the others are on sliding rails that I setup inside of them.

The last thing I made before running out of coffee stir sticks was a Hummer H-1 replica.

Even though the doors don't open. The main feature of this is that its wheels can roll on their own when you push it. The people I worked with didn't think I would be able to do it with the materials I was using and the size I was making it. I made the axles out of staples. They were all shocked when they saw it in action.

Here is a video of it rolling.

The materials I used were pretty simple for all of these. Coffee stir sticks, Elmer's glue sticks, small ruler, scissors and staples.

I hope never to be that bored again.

So has anyone else ever been that bored?

Honestly, I think that's pretty badass. Mixing work and hobbies? Neat. Did you ever think about painting any parts?

Didn't have anything to paint with on hand, or I just might have. hehe

Probably wont add anything onto these now though, like them the way they are. (^_^)

I'm surprised this isn't on the pulse
I do things when I'm bored as well but its not as creative sometimes. I've been know to clean when I'm really bored or make up games. Then there are days when I read or draw...

When I didn't have the internet for awhile, it was hella boring. Torture even. Honestly, it was cruel and unusual punishment. I almost went mad. Thank goodness, I don't have to go through that hell again.
