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 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! - Mrveteran

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. - Britgirl

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. - SwagFlicks

Celbrities only purpose in life is to entertain me, and I don't care about them outside of that - RecklessGreed

2 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...! - Britgirl

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. - VarG-dot-DOT

Not always. I fancy a chat of the forecast especially if it's nice out. - Spicygarlic

3 Personal health issues

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...! - Britgirl

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. - Mrveteran

If the conversationalists agree, sure. But if they don't... - PetSounds

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! - Curti2594

I'm 11 and me and my friends talk about evil dictators, the election and nuclear weapons all the time.

No comment. - Britgirl


6 Some sports

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

Foot *cough* ball. Some are totally obsessed with it. I don't get it. I don't want to get it. Don't talk to me about it. - Britgirl

7 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. - Turkeyasylum

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

8 Shopping

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

"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. - Britgirl

9 What your neighbours are up to

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! - Britgirl

12 Government

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

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. - Mrveteran

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