Lots of workers waste time at work, but few would want to broadcast video of themselves doing it. But New York technology teacher Francesco Portelos is doing that just to protest his suspension, which he says has left him to languish in a "rubber room" -- a detention center for teachers.

Portelos (pictured above) wants taxpayers to see where the dollars that pay his salary are going, New York's Daily News reports. "I'm getting paid $75,000 to sit around." So he's streaming live images of himself from the office where he must sit and wait for an disciplinary hearing.
