  • Same way as I did BEFORE there was AB, Internet and Computer Games - doing something far more worthwhile.....
  • I only use AB when it's slow at work so I'd probably clean my desk. I currently don't have a computer at home and I'm always so busy all the time that I don't think I'll get one soon.
  • Eating beans then lighting my botty burps whilst drinking lager with my pet hamster.
  • reading the newspaper and doing crosswords
  • The gym most likely :)
  • The gym ! :)
  • Well...looking back into the depths of the history of my own life.....raised when only the privileged few with money had a TV.....nobody had a computer...few had a car...this is what we did. We read....we talked.....we played outside (if little) or met at the ice cream parlour (if teens)....we were involved in team sports (street or field style..not in fancy-dancy rinks, etc)...we had part-time jobs...we listened to talk radio (to variety shows, to comics, to music, to debates, to stories, to serial shows, to news, to boxing matches and ballgames and soccer)...we read some more...we played board games, cards and cards....we did chores...we helped with the cooking/baking/washing/ironing because it was expected and we didn't avoid it or feel resentful....we went to the movies, the swimming pool, the library, church, to visit our elderly relatives.....and on and on WE never ever considered our time WASTED, and we were NEVER bored.
