Bored? Be the Future of Science!

For boredom, might I recommend the following website:

fold.it

  Really, that’s the whole address.  FoldIt is a game in which the goal is folding a functional protein!  From this website you can download FoldIt, which comes with a protein-folding tutorial, followed by an ever-growing list of REAL proteins whose folded structure has yet to be discovered.  An integral viral protein of HIV was actually discovered using this program.

  So go play and contribute to society!
