    What can I do?

    I'm getting really tired sometimes when it's late or something, and I feel too stupit to do anything. I can't read a tutorial, because I must read the same line one billion times before I understand what I just read. I don't like watching TV, or listen to music anymore.

    I need something to do when I don't have anything to do. When I'm too stupid to program. Like now for example. I got the advice that I could bake cookies. But I need something more to do.

    you could go into a chat room, if your really bored go into the hackers chat room and watch all the 12 year old wannabe script kiddies arguing.

    you could get a dog and walk it.

    get a goldfish and watch it - its meant to be theraputic.

    do the dishes or laundry, wash the car, paint the house?

    just a few suggestions

    It' completely dark outside as I live in the middle of the forest (in a house). So it's not possible to do anything outside, hell there is never anything to do outside, EVER.

    No, all of your suggestions sucks. Give me more.

    Sports ? Naah, this is a programmers board...

    How about reading a book ? Nothing technical, something fun.

    Meet friends ? Play games ? Meet girls ? Go out ? I don't know...

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Bored of the Rings, written by The Harvard Lampoon and published in September of 1969 by Signet Books. Funniest book I've ever read - you won't be disappointed.

    Find a pointless computer game, preferably multi player so others an enjoy your mood. I'd recamend a 1st person shooter, TFC or Counter-Strike are my favorites. Then play till you fall asleep on the keyboard, but make sure you buy something to protect the keyboard from drool!

    Playing like that's really relaxing and mindless, well for many playing it probably takes all their mental energy, but for normal awake people its mindless.

    You're not as stupid as you sound like. Sports can sometimes be nice, I've realized that I do feel better after doing some physically hard work.

    I'm reading Lord of the Rings. However, even if I have some different things to do I can still find myself restless sometimes. I want to build or make something real, not just program and read things.

    Meet friends ? Play games ? Meet girls ? Go out ? I don't know...
    All of those things are impossible. I live in the wrong place. BTW, I don't like spending time with other people, they are all worthless and boring. I only like myself.

    Well, if this is the attitude you have you're about the only one that does.

    Prozac may help you see life with a different view. You sound like one of the most clinically depressed people I have ever seen.I have never commented on this in the past even after reading through countless threads of yours but you very definately need medical help.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
