What's the Most Bored You've Ever Been?

Jason English

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. A particular class? A long layover? A dreadful conversation? When you think back on all the times you've been really bored, what stands out?

2. Your smartphone can do a lot, from lighting a room to rating your kissing ability. (Really.) But there are certainly advances to be made. If you could make your phone do one more thing, what would it be?

3. We're considering launching an Amazing Quote Generator in the style of the Amazing Fact Generator. What are some of your favorite quotes?

4. Your turn! If you've got a question for your fellow _flossers, ask away in the #4 slot. Have a great weekend!

Oh, one last thing. We've had a run of bad luck with a few misbehaving ads. I apologize if there is music playing, or there are ads that pop up and won't let you close them. Every time we think we've zapped them, some new thing (literally) pops up. Just wanted you to know we're aware and frustrated and working on it.
