Are you guys bored? I’m not bored! As a gross and hot David Thewlis once said in the Mike Leigh movie Naked:
«Was I bored? No, I wasn’t f*ckin’ bored. I’m never bored. That’s the trouble with everybody – you’re all so bored. You’ve had nature explained to you and you’re bored with it, you’ve had the living body explained to you and you’re bored with it, you’ve had the universe explained to you and you’re bored with it.»
As angsty and Gen X as that statement is, I can’t help but agree with it. People get way too bored in the face of exciting information, and that’s a shame. When I was younger, I never understood how one could be bored while learning exciting information at school every day. On the other hand, I think boredom is a critical state of being that we can’t entirely discredit. How can you know what interests you without knowing what bores you? We’ve created devices to ensure that no person is ever bored again, which might not be the best thing! However, you’ve got to fight the boredom sometimes, and what better way than with some hilarious memes?
