For the geeks among us, I just discovered another thing to waste time. It's called wikiball. The idea is to pick a random page from Wikipedia and find the shortest route to the article of the day that's listed on the main page. You have to get there by using internal links within the body of the article. Here's the one I did today:

Amador Valley High School (my random page)
Greg Kragen
College football
Sugar Bowl
2000 Sugar Bowl (featured article for 1/4)

If you want to do more than one a day you can just use the random page button twice.
