Default Looking for... well, something to keep me entertained...

You guessed it! Work is, and always has been, boring, and now, somehow, I feel like I'm missing something to do, when I should be working!

So, I thought, what can I do, that slightly delays the inevitable boredom, and might solve my problem?
That's right, post a poll on the Enclave, where I'll be told to do something with fish!

Ah, but since I might just get some random ideas, and have fun eating fish at the same time, here it goes!

Each option has a score, between 1 and 10, 10 being best. Fun factor is how fun it is, while time factor is how long it will entertain me.

First option:
Lurk some more! If you do not know me, this would be why. Yet, while TO's threads constantly multiply, my interest in these threads are gradually decreasing, as all the good ones have been read, and the others just can't entice the effort to click on them.
Fun Factor: 5 / 10
Time factor: 5/10

Write a tactica... or something: Have thought about doing this, but 2 things currently stop me from picking up the effort. Firstly, a lot of the topics I know about have been covered, and secondly, it takes too long for the fun it gets.... If you pick this option, you have to suggest a topic.
Fun Factor: 2/10
Time factor: 7/10

Story Time! similar to the above, but for the Grand Story competition. First problem, haven't really got a design up yet, and secondly, it takes too long. But is probably more interesting, once I get the actually plans up.
Fun Factor: 4/10
Time Factor: 9/10

Something else! Tell me what you think I should do!

Fish! What can I say? -FISH!- This option is compulsory. Yet, I must warn you, I need to know what I can do with fish, and why I would bother.

Write yourself a story.
Put it up in the fluff/stories section (and pray someone comments on it :P)

It doesn't matter if it's not warhammer related, a lot of the stuff there isn't.

Where a tactica can be good, as you said, most have been done already.

Join in the random discussions in the pam thread, make a new game you can enjoy (Or res an old one[with mods permission])

Or why not play a game off the site.

Get out of the Enclave for awhile. Visit the Ork Forum and discover your inner desire to loot a IG vehicle.

I was going to say this when you first posted the topic but I thought it would be snide. But someone else opened the door. :P

Join a gym or something.

If you want a fish option, why not train yourself in the ancient art of Haddo-cod?

It dates back to the early days of the Pirate Basilsk civilasation who first trained with smoked fillets before moving onto freshly caught fish rubbed with sea salt (for that added pain factor).

Of course, I'm fully trained in Haddo-cod martial art form and could give you virtual training lessons in everything EXCEPT the fishing skills (dubbed "weapon-catching" amongst Haddo-cod circles) since I don't fish at all and instead merely catch my weapons using my bare hands like all Haddo-cod masters do.

Well we could look at it this way;

Fun Factor: 4/10
Time Factor: 9/10
Lurk: 5 - 5 = 0
Tactica: 2 - 7 = -5
Fluff: 4 - 9 = -5
Fish: ---

Ergo you should do non of the above, and instead spend your time making a fishy de-motivational, followed by a visit to the greater interwebs on a quest to return with interesting items for all members perusal.

If you work on a PC, I suggest downloading E-Books. It keeps me entertained.
