Recently, I took up knitting and guitar to keep me occupied. This week, I broke my dominant/writing hand--entire arm is completely unusable down to elbow, after surgery and splinting, and this'll continue for at least 4 weeks, if not more. Are there any hobbies that can be done one-handed in the meantime, to keep me from getting incredibly bored? [more inside]
I have a board game that uses line of site. I could use string, or a rubber band to measure line of site. But I want to go over the top and use a laser that would put a line on the board--for perfect accuracy. But I need a small cheap one. The keychain lasers or pointer lasers don't seem to do this, I think I need a laser level. Any suggestions for small cheap-o laser level?

Turns out I'll be in Utrecht on Sunday. Any recommended spot to watch the Super Bowl? It's going to be at midnight Central Europe Time, right? I could go up to Amsterdam, I guess, but that seems a little much.
I'm interested in finding a site / YouTube channel / similar portal that shows only the "action" portion of sporting events. For example, a Youtube channel that would edit out all of the footage from NFL games, showing only the time when the clock was running. MLB has clips of key pitches/hits on their site (as does the NFL), but not the whole game from what I can find. Can anyone point me in the right direction of a full game trimmd down to only the "action"?
I'm thinking I should pick up a camera to use on my honeymoon in Costa Rica this summer and just to have a better camera around in general (have an iPhone 6). I don't want a DSLR cause I want pretty good portability and no lens-swapping (although the ability to add lenses later doesn't necessarily need to be counted out), in addition to not spending as much as necessary for a solid DSLR/lenses.

I am in rocky, crafty waters. A while back I saw these enameled forks sold by World Market which were only sold in stores. Since their nearest store is a 2 hour drive from me, I googled and learned that I could make my own set. After consulting with my local art store, I bought basic flatware and enamel craft paint and happily set about painting (just the handles, of course). Everything seemed promising until the final step... [more inside]
This question is kind of hard to phrase. I've gotten into the habit of relying on my laptop for stimulation, especially since I started working from home and am at my computer most of the day anyhow. I'm not talking about looking at porn or online gambling, but just being online. I get bored so easily now when I'm not online. [more inside]
