I can rarely lose myself in something for a long period of time like a nice video game [age of empires II] or a nice read. Randomly when I'm bored and I feel like being educated on my own free will I turn to my good buddy about.com. Once you read something and learn something new you see something else and you read about that and see another link and so on and so on, if you are in the right mood which is usually at a really late hour of the night for me.
