There are plenty of better ways to excercise the muscles in your arms than to rip up phone books. Don't be an idiot and actually think before you put something in writing.

get a finger exerciser. dont waste paper.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

but surely there are much more economical ways to exercise than rip up phone books?

"Idiotness" isn't a word, I'm afraid. Hate to burst your (ironically) new-user-hating bubble.

Or you could just use the word "idiocy" instead. It's also a bit of a no-no to spell "language" wrong in a dictionary.
