On a planet as large and varied as this one, how can anyone be bored?

    how can anyone be bored?

    Have you found out yet?

    I've been procrastinating being bored. I plan to spend some of my time being bored when I retire.

    Cheers, Sören

      No, I haven't yet found out about boredom, and like you I'm putting it off. I doubt I'll be bored during retirement, at least not until/unless I end up physically unable to do much of anything.

      Since I'm only 44 years old, I haven't yet found the time to be bored.

    Thus speaks a man without a job!
      Actually, I'm self employed -- so I have many jobs, some of them (those that take up the bulk of my time) involve programming in Perl.

      When I worked for wages, I was always involved in interesting projects, which might explain why I've so often been down-sized, right-sized, reorganized, restructured, made redundant, become unnecessary, been over-qualified and/or over-compensated right out of a job. I can't win that game, so I'm not going to play it any more.

      But I'm still not bored!
