Fun Stuff to Do When You're Bored

Postby ken worley on Mon Dec 18, 2006 1:28 pm

Cut down the largest tree in your yard/garden...Count the rings to see how old it was.

Do the same thing with your grandparents.

Make a shiny pinwheel, and skip around with it in front of an army barracks, wearing nothing but a pair of ruby slippers and a pink tutu...(This one for boys only)..

For the girls, try to write your name in the snow.(also in front of an army barracks)...

Okay, how about..

Close your eyes and imagine ten housecats harmonizing an ornate
a-capella arrangement of Scarborough Fair

Sneak onto a stranger's front lawn in broad daylight, lie down, and wait.

Eventually, someone will look out the window and see you...This may take up to four hours...(more during football season)
Be patient.
When they come out, remain completely motionless, suppress your breathing, and don't let your glazed-open eyes blink...(for added effect, psychically will a fly to land on your face and crawl across your unblinking eyeball.)
(if you can)
(If you can't, will it to crawl across your cheek instead.)

Do not respond to the homeowner,no matter how loudly they try to rouse you, and if they shake or prod you with a stick, just stay limp and "deadish"...

Eventually, they will phone the police..

Wait till the police car pulls up, and the officer(s) get out of the car and approach you.

When they are about 6 feet from you, suddenly spring from the ground, sprint at top speed across the lawn, hop a fence like a rabbit, and disappear into the woods...

Create threads on message boards to get people thinking of things to do when they're bored.

Try to smell the blueness of the sky.

Announce to your friends that you're pregnant, seriously, even though you are a man, tell them you will be on TV's <choose apt TV show> next month on hermaphrodites.

Invent numerous false histories of yourself then pass them off to people you meet... ("I used to be a taxi driver in new york" etc...) My dad does this on public transport: he'll get talking to some old woman who will no-doubt be itching to tell him about her lumbago/hernia/bowels. First off he gives his age as 89 (he's actually 69) and they'll tell him how good he looks for his age. Then he'll go on to explain how aloe vera and homeopathy have kept him so healthy and young looking. Then he tells them about his previous 2 wives dying very soon after getting married, the first from eating poisonous mushrooms, the second from a fall down the stairs (punch line: "It was her own fault, she wouldn't eat her mushrooms!" - though by this time they've suspended all disbelief and completely miss the joke). Occasionally he'll bump into one for a second time and they'll gladly tell him how, since they followed his advice and now take a daily dose of homeopthic remedy X, they no longer suffer with their lumbago/hernia/bowels. He says it makes the bus journey fun and quite often lights up someone's day who was previously weighed down by their own misfortunes. And of course, a placebo cure is as good as any other.

My favourite thing I do when I'm bored at the moment: pretend I'm working but really be browsing venganza forums :roll: answering questions on what to do when I'm bored.

Go to the grocery when it is very busy.
Put less than a dollar's worth of change into the coinstar machine, and take the receipt for payment through the checkout line.
See if the cashier is sharp enough to realize the irony.

Write a poem. Read a poem. Sing a poem. Memorize a poem. Recite a poem. Start a poetry reading club.

Wait, how bored do we mean here? :roll:

Oh, I ought to. Thanks for the heads up. If you're bored, try speaking in Shakespearean dialect for as long as you can, and see how far you get. Forsooth!

If you are going somewhere you have never been as a group, dress exactly like Black Sabbath on the coverof the Sabotage album.
The key, of course, is to act as though there is nothing unusual...
