101 Things To Do When You’re Bored


I liked this list I found at Lists Galore so much I wanted to share the top 10 items with you, and encourage you to visit his site for the other 91 things to do when you are bored.

  1. Look up urban legends, and/or ghost stories in your town. Investigate!
  2. If you live in a city with public transport (bus, train, subway), plan a trip using the transit system. Take some friends along for company, or just enjoy the ride and people-watch!
  3. Get yourself a roll of quarters and find a video arcade.
  4. Strike up a conversation with a total stranger.
  5. Learn to tie sailors’ knots.
  6. Volunteer. It’s fun and you’ll get good karma. :o)
  7. Hang out with old people. They have great stories and sometimes need the company.
  8. Perform random acts of kindness.
  9. Find out all the great touristy places in your city. Now spend the day being a tourist!
  10. Try geocaching.

    You forgot masturbation and smoking weed. Oh, and alcohol and Monopoly Board game at the same time is good too.

        It’s a joke you fool. Don’t take things so seriously! I have a girlfriend so I don’t need to masturbate, (and it’s not morally unethical, unless you’re a religious conservative), smoking weed is illegal but so is cheating on your taxes. Alcohol is legal and causes way more deaths than marijuana (marijuana which by the way has NEVER caused an overdose) and yet it’s illegal, go figure. As far a Monopoly goes, it’s just a board game, it’s not reality.

          No. I’m not paranoid, just a little offended. Yeah, I do smoke weed, on occasion. I do drink. I’m not ashamed of anything. I don’t lie, steal or cheat. Oh and for the record, I’m Atheist, and a registered Democrat who plans on voting for re-election of President Obama. I am a veteran and proud to be an American. I care for people and try very much to respect others as I would like to be respected. I will say this; I am subscribed to Top Tenz and look forward to each list every day. I enjoy reading the lists. They are informative and entertaining. I sincerely wish whoever the Top Tenz Master is good fortune and a good future. In the words of John Lennon; Peace.

  2. I know being bored is a huge issue in today’s society; we constantly have to be doing something. That is why I have the Sling adapter from DISH Network. I actually have and work at DISH and with the Sling adapter, you can stream live and recorded TV to you iPad, android phone, or other mobile device. The best part is that you can use it wherever you have 3G coverage or WiFi, so you can watch TV whenever you are bored no matter where you are at, unlike other providers where you are required to stay at home to use it.

  3. do a music video of you and your friends? hahaha for fun of course! we did it once and we ended up laughing at each other, and not finishing the whole video hahaha
