    Default Here's the bomb, for the Sake of Esoteric Wench, what excites the crap out of you?

    @Esoteric Wench, I hardly know you, but I'm a compassionate sort and when I see someone suffering from boredom, well, I think nobody deserves that fate. It rots the soul and turns the brain to mush, so this one's for you

    So people, what excites you?

    Come on, give it up. We need to know. No holding back...get exciting, an individual is in crisis here.

    Thunderstorms. Crazy dreams. Serial killers. That's pretty much it.

    I get excited when books I like are turned into TV shows or movies.

    I get excited when book series I'm reading have new books released.

    I get excited when I have extra money to spend.

    I will be really excited when I can finally solo that rare that spawns in the Pandaria daily fishing spot. That jerk has killed me a lot of times so he has it coming.

    Almost any time I get to travel is exciting. But then I get all anxious and can't sleep the night before because I'm trying to make sure I don't forget anything and then I'm like a zombie when I'm supposed to be having fun, which is usually not exciting in a good way.

    It was kind of exciting to take my friend's kids to the park and chase them around. I forgot what it was like to have an excuse to act like that.

    That's all I can think of for now. I generally do not see excitement as a good thing, IRL. It usually means something has gone terribly wrong.
    “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.”

    New obsessions. New books. New projects. Discovering stuff. Trips.

    Right now... seriously, if my room can magically tidy itself I'd be very excited

    Boredom, Excitement and Cruelty

    Excitement is the symptom of boredom.

    Excitement does not cure boredom, it entrenches it, makes it worse, makes us worse.

    Excitement preys upon our boredom, makes us lesser people.

    But worse, the bored gather together to excite one another, empty, hollow and cruel.

    For when excitement fails to banish boredom, they turn to cruelty, like the cruel Colosseum of Rome.

    You didn't let me down! Hurrah!
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Well I guess that's that.

    We can talk about things or we can experience things, we can be things.

    If we continue to talk about things, the things become paper thin, and we become bored.

    So for instance, mbti is talking about personality rather than being a personality, and so becomes boring.

    Of course it is worse in Oz, for in the USA it is sincere/phony, while in Oz, it is amusing/boring.

    And so I hesitate to tell you this, but if we say you are boring, it means we don't like you.

    So go for the experience. Share your experience. And amuse us.

    When I get excited I tend to quickly deal with it so I can get back to being bored.
