I can't believe it when I see people complaing - in any context - that they are "bored." I don't think I've truly ever been bored since junior high
(which was about a million years ago, ha-ha) maybe. Maybe not even then.
1) Life has the potential for so much horror. You could be crushed by a falling I-beam from a construction site next time you walk down the street.
You could be wrongly accused of a crime or a mental illness and suddenly find yourself spending 20 years battling the system. You could catch some
horrible disease.The list goes on and on, as we all know. So if you are simply sitting somewhere not doing anything special at the moment, count
yourself blessed beyond belief that none of these other horrible things are happening to you.
If you truly get a good insight into the dimension
of horror, the relief should be palpable enough that every minute that "nothing" happens is cause to weep with sheer joy.
2) Thanks to teh intrawebs, the amount of information and entertainment available is mind-boggling. Now, I'm pretty old-school in that I don't go for
online gaming and my video intake on the web is pretty limited, I'm still a text-based guy. Even within those limitations, I click past more
stupefyingly fascinating stuff on a daily basis than I could possibly process in ten lifetimes. Here, just for starters, are a few places where you
could easily lose yourself for years at a time:
a) The Internet Archive
b) The Upenn Online Books Site
: Here, have a million free e-books.
c) Forgotten Books
: Oh look, another million free e-books.
d) The Alchemy Website
: Like alchemy? If not, why not learn to?
: For the mystics and wild-eyed seekers among you.
: Need I say more?
: Need I say more?
So...there's no reason to be bored. Ever.
