Top Ten Most Boring Topics of Conversation

Ah, you know what? There are just some topics which should be avoided at all costs. So so BORING!

The Top Ten

1 Weather

A good ice-breaker (especially for the British) but after 10 minutes of saying "It's not what was forecast, is it? Still expect we'll get rain later..." Just stop! Oh my days...!

Its -10 here in Minnesota, and cold everywhere else in the 0 degrees. Meanwhile in Phoenix arizona its 115 degrees oh man get a tan there are die trying.

As somebody who loves geography and big talk, I love talking about the weather, the more extreme the better.

Hate when someone starts talking about weather. It's such a silly thing to discuss.

2 Celebrities

Unless they've died, are suffering from an illness or something serious, I really don't care. There are far bigger issues in the world to be concerned with and talk about than Kim Kardashian's derriere for Christ's sake. When we have a world and a press who will report for days over Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie splitting up, but will not report on recent attacks and explosions in Malmo for a while, there's a bloody problem!

Brad and Angelina have split. Taylor swift's hundredth boyfriend - don't blink or you'll miss him. These were HEADLINE news! I don't care who is on the Rich List. I do not care about trashy celebrity magazines. Do NOT talk to me about this stuff. I don't care.

Despite all the ridiculous things that the tabloids (and to a lesser extent, real sources) put out, they're made for gossip and/or the start of a new trend. It still infuriates me to no end, though.

I hardly know any celebrities and I honestly don't care about them. I know a few singers, but Kat Mcsnatch is the only one I'd ever care about, and she explains her life inside her songs, her days full of dreams.

3 Personal health issues

Excuse me, but people should care if one of their compatriots is struggling through health. It's not boring, it's scary!

Me: I think I have A.I.D.S.
Friend: Yeah, that's kind of boring, let's talk about weather. Wait, isn't weather boring, no that was politics, I mean...
Me: *Collapses onto the floor.*
Friend: Hmm, you seem to making strange gasps for air as if you were dying and had A.I.D.S. Now let's not be ridiculous. You're a teenager, not a four-year-old. Let's not let your imagination get the best of ourselves.
Me: Thinks: What are you doing?! I'm dying, not playing a game of charades or taking a nap. Help me, you buffoon!
Friend: I was thinking of taking a nap. Or we can play charades. The weather's nice, isn't it.
Me: *Dies.*
Friend: You really are exhausted! It's like you have A.I.D.S!

It's nice to show concern. And sometimes the interest is genuine but some people...honestly... give them an inch and they'll drag you to their next doctors' appointment. Some never stop waxing lyrical about their aliments. There's only one time they'll stop and that's when they're ill...!

Whoever put this has no soul, heart, oblivious and doesn't care about anyone.

So you don't care if the person you're talking to has serious life issues?

4 Politics

Good political discussions are interesting. However, if people are not interested about it, don't force it onto them, especially considering how heavy some of this stuff can get. Not to mention how pathetically defensive or stupid some people can get over it, since that can feel like you're talking to a brick wall. So while politics is fine to discuss, you shouldn't be preachy about it to the non-converted, especially if your thesis is that we need a revolution and that we're all slaves. Hate to say that not only are you wrong, but the majority of people don't care about how wrong you are.

So my papa literally left me home alone for a long time just to watch presidential debates. He invited me along and I replied with
"Watching two dumb people argue? NO thanks"

Most boring yes Most anger causing yes Most I don't need to hear about that Yes.

Most I will unleash hell on you if you don't stop putting politics into my brain YES!

Political conversations should be reserved for prime time television and sketchy Internet boards. Never in real life.

5 Facebook

It's super annoying when people ask if you've seen some random Instagram post or read some Facebook status complaining about the two options for the 2016 election or some other biased political article.

I used to go on Facebook for a week, got bored, and now my account is my sister's and dad's.

Ahh...so what? Just...so what?!

6 Insurance

Yes perfect for my paper which will be so boring no one will ever read it

7 Sports

In my personal opinion it's quite an interesting topic to have conversations 'bout but only in the case where two individual bears mutual interest...Yes, online talk regarding the topic gets pretty exhausting after a point of time

I love talking about American football, basketball is decent to discuss, I don't know much about baseball, and don't get me started on how boring Soccer is.

I hate sports except tennis and cricket. But I never even watch them, nor the Olympics.

8 Baby Showers

What would someone even talk about that is related to this?

9 Mathematics
10 Traffic

"There was a red car, a silver car, a gold car - "
*I almost sleep bored.*
" - And a car with some eyelashes and painted eyes on"
*I gain a huge amount of interest.*

The Contenders

11 Shopping

My family at the mall:

Mom and relatives: Macy's styles are so awesome, there's a discount on this dress, blah blah blah
Me: I don't care, Gamestop is better...

"Oh look! A discount on towels! " Right, I don't care

"can't believe how much bread has gone up..."
Bad. Unless it's clothes or shoe shopping - then it's totally fine. But grocery shopping? Don't talk to me.

I..Hate...Shopping.
IHE, please make a video on it, my senpai. :D

12 Rocks

Really? People talk about this? In geography classes or science labs, I could understand why you would want to discuss that, but it's not very interesting to invest time in.

Oh naturally, the never-ending flow of conversation about rocks will make my eyes glaze..
I love this item! Haha. Rocks..

Hey! This is the conversation starter I mostly start with!

Well, unless you're an archeologist

13 Physics

So boring yet so hard

14 What your neighbours are up to

No-one should care about what your neighbours do. This is because:
a) They're not your immediate family.
b) If you don't get along with them, it doesn't matter.
c) You don't talk to them much in some cases.

Unless they're close to you or something, no-one really cares about how horrible your neighbours are. Coming from personal experience, it is mundane to keep referring to them.

Gah! I don't care who is sneaking around with who. I don't care about Mrs Thingy's dirty curtains at number 35. I don't care if "her round the corner" is claiming a benefit that she isn't entitled to. I don't care!

15 Government

Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?

16 Doors

Unless, of course, it's the band.

People talk about this?

Doors...?! Haha wha...?

17 Work

Fine if you have an interesting job. But a meat packer, or sausage filler...? It makes me cry.

My parents: We work so hard, we are so tired, blah blah blah

18 Golf Golf is a club and ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes from a range of 80 to 600 yards on a course in as few strokes as possible.
19 Knitting

Reading Knitting Patterns

20 Glue
21 Movies
22 Trapezoids

Well now I think these would be quite enjoyable to talk aboot ( better that Politics or Religion)

It's so cool how trapezoids only have one set of parallel lines

23 Twitter Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, "tweets," restricted to 140 characters.

Discussed due to lack of ones own life

24 Dust particles
25 Tennis Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent or between two teams of two players each.

No the trick is you don't talk aboot this sport you just grunt instead.
