I have a 40 hour/week desk job that requires nothing from me. What's something epic I can do this summer?

So, unfortunately I waited half the summer to ask this, so I only have about six weeks left. But still, that's 240 hours of time.
I have a job that requires me to sit at a desk all day. Beyond that, other than the occasional phone to answer, I can basically do whatever I want. I have a computer and internet access. And if possible, I want to do something epic.
Examples I have in mind are things like 5000 piece puzzles, stop-motion animation videos, Rube Goldberg machines, etc. Something that's not necessarily technically demanding or complex but that requires such vast amounts of time to construct that it overwhelm the senses with its sheer scope.
Unfortunately, as I said, I'm behind a desk, which severely limits my possibilities. I'm willing to spend some money, but I don't want a huge budget.
