    Tell him you won't spank him unless he shapes up.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    That just might work!

    Everyone is right... he's bored and he'll hopefully grow out of it. XD Maybe I should buy him legos afterall.

    Now, I don't want to change him. But it really DOES get on my nerves when he's like this, especially when it's for prolonged periods. It'd be easier if I knew there were a way to redirect him if he were really getting out of hand.

    Help?

    constructive criticism, obviously

    EDIT:
    Or just destroy him

    Try responding in the same manner and out-destroy him. See what happens.

    But really, I agree with all of the previous posters. He definitely seems bored with/sick of his surroundings. I behave in a similar way when I feel like this. You should introduce him to a new activity or new people (just make sure they're the type that won't bore/irritate him further). Maybe he just needs to some fresh interaction with things.
