Top 10 Most Boring Things to Do In Your Spare Time

The Top Ten
1 Homework

Roberto Nevelis had invented homework to help students learn faster, homework is so boring, it makes students waste their time and stressed, Homework does not save your time, it has so many stressful questions, it is too stressful to do, if it is invented again then others will get more stressful.

Homework is awful. What is the point of going to school if you have to do homework? So basically it's not just a few hours wasted at school. No. It's the ENTIRE DAY because HOMEWORK is there to ruin your life. People commit suicide over homework and I can see why.

2 Watch grass grow

Seriously? Is it that hard to understand? It's worse than watching a teacher write about the quadratic formula. Seriously.

Staring is the most boring thing to do like all the others.

What... No one will ever do that...unless they have had to many Magic Mushrooms

3 Watch paint dry

Just do something else! Go play instead of watching your walls dry!

4 Stare at a TV that's not on

Yep super boring sometimes when I'm grounded, I'll just stare at the T.V. thinking time will pass, but nope 5 seconds later I'm so bored I go and find something else to do

"Stare at a T.V. that's not on" What a waste of time, doing something so boring. Tedious. Monotonous and mundane.
I think Id rather do knitting. (And I'm not 80 I'm 20)

Sometimes I do this, but I create shows in my head and imagine them on the screen.

5 Read

I used to hate reading. Every second of it. But when my mom got annoyed by it, she forced me to the library to get a book. I got the Hunger games, because why not? I saw the movie, so I'd read the book. After I read the book, I wanted to read another. You need to read anything. If you couldn't, you wouldn't be reading this comment, reading all the comments on this list, or anything.

In the past several years, I have only read a book (excluding fanfiction or like Wattpad stories) once, even if it was off of a computer. But then again it was probably one of my favorite books I've read.

6 Nothing

Nothing is more boring than doing nothing, especially at school! When the teacher has nothing for you to do in school and you have not very much friends it's hard to stay entertained. Being productive gets your mind off of useless things.

Basically nothing is another word for meditation, but you're kinda better off doing most of the things listed here as they have better clarity in your mind instead of just frying your brain in overstimulation.

This is essentially doing nothing in your spare time in a nutshell:

SpongeBob: Oh, Magic Conch Shell, what do we need to do to get out of the Kelp Forest?
Magic Conch: Nothing.
Patrick: The shell has spoken!

7 Watch golf

My grandpa always watched golf on T.V. and it's awful like I used to play golf but got terribly bored of it. It's even worse that you're sitting out in the hot sun.

Doing golf is worse than watching it. It takes 15 minutes to finish one hole. And that's if you're lucky.

I can't stand golf. Whats the point of it anyway? Put a ball in a hole?

8 Go shopping

Depends on what you are shopping for. Shopping for CLOTHES is the most boring thing EVER! I may as well stair at a wall.

9 Golf

What could be more boring than taking 15 minutes (if you're lucky) to do one hole out of 9? Or 18?

At least video games have reading.

10 Think of another item to put on a most boring things to do in your spare time list
The Contenders
11 Be the only sober guy at a party
12 Watch Barney

Barney is a stupid purpled dinosaur and pointless, love songs from baby shows are so boring, I hate you, you hate me, lets spy on barney with spyglass, we must track his location and distract him when the kids are with him.

Barney has the most wretched voice you could think of. This show also teaches kids offensive language. I have never met a kid who liked this show.

Laugh out loud, some 7 year old who just got over watching this and has a younger sibling must've put this on here. My 4 year old loves this show.

13 Attend younger sibling's performance

I would only ever watch my stupid brother play rugby if he broke something. I would not want to miss that. It would be the only sport-related thing worth watching.

it is just about the most boring thing ever getting dragged along to a younger siblings performance while I could be doing something else... Especially as most of the performances are completely rubbish

Not just boring, it's annoying too.

14 Read boring lists online

Ironically, this is the most boring on the list, in my opinion. It is my assertion that the ones who came here for a satirical outlook on the lack entertainment, are the ones most inclined to be entertained. However, said people will be, most likely, bored as well in just reading this list.

I'm only doing this to get my little brother to go away.

That's what I'm doing right now... I'm bored

15 Go to school

School is pain, I get bored every time over there especially the subject reading, except recess and lunch!

School can be fun sometimes but sometimes not.

Do nothing till recess Any one go to burnt mills elementary school

16 Sleep

For some reason a night I don't want to sleep but when I do sleep and my parent wake me up I always don't want to wake up so I'm usually late to school. It's a normal thing for me.

That is the most boring thing ever. Who wants to go to sleep anyways?

The only boring part about sleep is trying to fall asleep. Otherwise sleep is heaven

17 Stare at the wall

I remember one day we had an electricity cut in our area.. and all of the things T.V. ac comp were switched off.. Aftersome time my phone's battery was also almost over. So I had Nthng to do except staring the wall... laugh out loud :-p

That sometimes used to happen when teachers would say " Go and stand there! "
Not to me by the way...

I HATE staring at the wall! I mostly do it when I am in trouble!

18 Listen to Justin Bieber

Baby, baby, baby, oh! Who on earth would want to listen to that weird gangsters stupid songs?

One, he's not dead
Two, I agree that listening to Justin Beiber is so boring.
Three, he's my least favorite singer

19 Watch Dora the Explorer

Dora is pathetic! I am glad they cancelled it! She is deaf and had a talking map! Dora is a football head and I give her 3 word and they are, stupid, StuPiD, STUPID!

The show is so obvious it gets on my nerves!

Stupid, stupid, stupid. I do not like it no more.

20 Talk to your imaginary friend

I use to always talk to my imaginary friend when I was younger. I never felt bad about it, I was kind of proud, but then again, I was oblivious that it was stupid to do when I was younger.

AARRGG! There is no point to it! People will think you are
Crazy because it is the first sign of stupidity!

I do that all the time when I was little. Couldn't help it, I was all alone

21 Read this list

That's exactly right I'm bored (why? )

22 Stare at a clock

I do that at school. It's much more interesting than the lesson.

Good to know how much more minutes till recess at school much more entertaining then the lesson

23 Watch the History Channel

It's so boring! When I'm really bored I watch Nat Geo Wild, History Channel, BBC Earth and stuff...

Some of their documentaries & conspiracies can be low key interesting.

So boring! Only nerdy kids and old people watch History Channel.

24 Read a random Wikipedia page
25 Listen to your parents talk about something you don't care about at all

Every time I try to ignore my mom she asks me a question and if I don't answer she know I wasn't listening!
