    That's basically how I feel about it. If someone says something will be fun, I ask them how. If it doesn't sound challenging, creative, or educational, there's a good chance that I'll decline.

    Their idea of having fun is my idea of wasting time. They say, "Oh, come on! Life is short, have some fun!" And I say, "Yes, life IS short, and that's why I'd rather not waste my time doing things that are pointless to me."

    But, I'm open minded enough to give it a shot sometimes. And I'm open minded enough to enjoy something even if I thought it was going to suck. A lot of my best memories wouldn't exist if I didn't give other people's ideas a chance. So, there's always the desire to take a chance on something and there's always the ability to initiate some change in a social situation that isn't fun at all.

    To me the options are usually more like:

    1) Sit home
    2) Go hang out

    Both can be nice or not nice, but I feel like there is bigger chance of something fun happening if I hang out.

    ill tell you what isnt fun... topics based on vague and highly interpretational vocabulary

    what is fun? even for a single person, that is going to have a wide meaning. let's leave "fun" as an adjective instead of a replacement word for a potentially unlimited number of activities. 'soccer is fun' as compared to 'let's go have "fun"'.

    Fun is taking away others' fun and making others miserable.

    True, that is mildly fun.

    The concept of a person disliking the concept of fun is some seriously funny shit.

    People can be so strange.

    "Having fun" is just enjoying yourself, if you enjoy reading books all day then you're having fun.
