Bored?

Image Above

"Daydreaming" from the Penn State science blog.



Need a breather? Two suggestions
.

One is a waste of your time, the other is actually pretty productive and useful because you would be assisting professional research.

Here we go:

Find the hidden page on this website. Once there, you'll find a little game that you won't be able to crack unless you're Melissa's cousin Vinnie.
     
Go to Zooniverse, the world's largest and most popular platform for people-powered research. It's awesome.

Pick a project and help out for a minute, an hour, or however long you feel like doing it.

 

Done all the above and still bored out of your skull?

Hmmm... maybe the Smithsonian's article The History of Boredom is for you. Or the QI website, which of course stands for Quite Interesting.

Let's just all be glad it's not April 11, 1954, the world's officially most boring day in history.  Read the article.

 

And finally, see if you can agree with Lord Byron. This is from his Don Juan:

 

Society is now one polish'd horde,
Form'd of two mighty tribes, the Bores and Bored.
