Just move your mouse around and lines will appear. Don't move as fast and the line gets thicker. Click to change the colour. Just scribble with the mouse for a couple of minutes and you will (hopefully) get something that makes a nice screensaver or desktop background.

It is a great website in the style of Jackson Pollock. Made by Miltos Manetas.

2. Play Free Online Games

Free online games are possibly the best way to spend a boring day. Kongregate is one of the best free online game websites. Just click one and play.
