Awkward silences, how do you handle them?

You all know what an awkward silence is, I assume. You know, where you probably would normally keep talking to someone but for some reason you just... can't.

How do you deal with them? Do you sit there and pray for an earthquake? Hope the other person either comes up with a conversation topic or goes away? Start browsing through your cell phone?
