    Re: universal pastime or a habit?

    What did you have in mind?

    "People-watching" may be a universal pasttime, in that you will find people all over the world who do it.

    It's possible that something like procrastination is a universal habit - it's not that everyone does it, but you can find people who do just about anywhere.

    How did you intend to use it?
