    Others I like are:

    laundry, straightening up, comb or style your hair differently, personal hygeine, job searching and resume work *if you're not happy with your current situation), calling an old friend or family member vs emailing or facebooking, researching, read the newspaper, learn a martial art (very underrated)

    What a great topic, I'm definitely stealing some of these. Just my two cents:
    • Fall cleaning sounds like a great idea
    • There are lots of free classes on Coursera too, it's a kinda new approach to online education and there's a good amount of offline reading/writing involved
    • TED talks are online but are always awesome to watch
    • I've been studying the Japanese kanji (part 1 of learning the language for me) with Anki, it's a great free app (but $ on iOS) written by a really dedicated guy (I paid $25 for an iPhone app to donate back to him for all his time!)

    - Explaining to others why they have to stay away from FB.
    - Volunteer Associations.
    - DIY. some useful site: diynetwork.com / instructables.com / craftster.org
    - Kill some bugs, whether on the floor or inside yourself :p
    - Punishing women who acts btchy.
    - and I can go on and on and...

    seriously, the list is worthless when you have a good understanding of why you have to stop (cut back) your internet use.. the will to do so.
