Bad attitude. Been on the bench too much while working as a consultant, it's not fun.
Even less fun than being on assignment to a paying customer and they decide to have you idle because there's no work for you (at least in those situations you get free drinks and don't have to stay within running distance of a telephone in case you need to go somewhere for your boss).

I assume you're just looking for a short diversion so that you can resume your work with a more energized and productive attitude, right?

Did you miss the grin - ' '? That was not a serious suggestion!

Google Earth was though. Combine it with http://www.googlesightseeing.com/ etc, its hours of information and fun!

Or try reading (and contributing, before they close that option) to Wikipedia. You call tell your grand kids that you have a page in there too.. Obligatory H2G2 comment - 'Earth: Mostly harmless'!

Checkout Flckr's explore option, and if you have your pics there, use the flickr.com/map and geotag them! See if there are any pics from places you have been etc.

Checkout digg, slashdot, engadget, BBC news, Google Blogs etc etc.

If you still have some time left, I would recommend you re-considering my first suggestion - 'working'!

If you have firefox 1.5, whenever you visit such sides that give a RSS feed, an icon shows up in the address bar - like a wireless signal. Click on it and you can treat it like any bookmark. Later when a new article is posted in these sites, it automatically shows up in your bookmark.

However, if your organization does not let you install firefox there is this free service called bloglines.com - you can subscribe to all kinds of RSS feeds and they get updated whenever you hit your page in bloglines.

Enjoy !!
