    I'm bored doing housework, grocery shopping, or any other domestic related activity. I sometimes overcome it, by playing math games simultaneously.

    Take a tip from me - and stick with boredom.

    No one loves anyone who hates themselves - while we can sympathise with boredom.

    Without bores, the world would be full of hate.

    Take the lesser of two evils - take boredom.

    It may not be the happiest Kingdom of all, but its not the worst either - the Kingdom of Boredom.
    victor...i can appreciate the perspective but i'm beginning to think it just works differently for an extrovert. For me specifically it has to do with that...if a tree falls in the forest scenario....what point is beauty and love if not to be shared...is it enough just to be....someone that lives their life focused on sharing those things WITH someone may bore easily alone..out of want to share not self hatred...i most certainly DO NOT hate myself...nor have i ever entertained such an idea.

    And that's all thanks to you, Jeff.
    Well, you should go ahead, because this "boredom = self-hatred" thing is WACK.

    But the killer assumption is that it is not polite to question the assumptions. And it is polite to take them at face value.

    This is a brilliant maneuver as who wants to be rude - it is simply unacceptable.

    This is called social control.

    And it works.
    Victor is correct.
    Vanity is the most hardened of all enemies of science and advancement.

    And the non-vain don't fraternize with the vain. They let them be wrong.

    ^^^ excuse me...but that is shit
    not at all true for everyone...if you are bored and find something not boring to do...and you feel fulfilled then it has served a purpose

    and....if you want company sometimes it does not mean you hate yourself and can't bare to be alone...

    eta: and...it could also be argued that if you never want company then you think so poorly of yourself that you feel you have nothing to offer...but..that would also be silly

    Err...

    Are you talking to me?
    I said nothing about boredom except that I'm bored the same way Victor is.


    Look up "vain" then come back.

    I'm hardly ever bored. There are so many things I could do, learn, etc etc that if a day was of 48 hours, I'd be even less bored.

    Perhaps some legos would alleviate me of my boredom.
