Fight Dementia--Keep your mind alive!

I came across an article "Preventing Dementia" and one of the ways is to "develop interests or hobbies".  This I guess means keeping your mind active and feeling alive--or perhaps keeping boredom away.
Just at about the same time, I received an email entitled "What to do when you are bored at work?"  It was a rather amusing and creative way to beat boredom.
It goes like this:
"Step 1: Kill a few flies.
Step 2: Dry them in the sun for a few hours.
Step 3: Once they are dry, pick a pencil and a paper ...[and] let your imagination flow.
I have put the examples in the email into a slideshow in a swf file below.  Enjoy!
