    you need to get the scissors from the kitchen or somewhere and *without thinking* cut the cables on the TV and computer, then you won't be able to do them until you go get new plugs tomorrow

    but switch the power off first!

    or you could take the fuses out or something and chuck them into next door's garden and decide you can be more arsed to do work than you can to go collect them

    yeah, i have that problem. Have tried unplugging the net connection, but i then just sit there, staring into space. Then, i realise I may as well do *something*, even if it isnt productive. Then. quicker than you can say "plug the net connection back in and start surfing", i have!
