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 Politics

Correctamundo. Especially in my family, where certain characters have different political views from majority of people, including myself (my grandfather is a commie, as he says negative, tired, outdated, Cold War era-esque nonsense and slander about the United States and certain other countries, and my mother is slowly turning into Neo-Nazi, as she believes certain conspiracy theories!). And when I wanted to call them out of it and tried to talk them about the topics such as art, or culture, they replied they don't know about it. And back to slander certain people. On my own birthday! If not the fact, that my grandfather reads books, and they have classical music tapes, I'd call them 'uncultured louts'! What's worse, my mother actually whines over certain people having different political views than her, denouncing them as 'scary' and 'terrifying' and 'we hafta run away from people like this' and why? Because they don't agree with her. She really lost her mind in terms of politics! ...more

Every time someone talks about politics I can guarantee 70% of the time it's going to be boring. Now, unless something big like a dictatorship is going on, I'm not interested.

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.

My school had to teach us these ideologies and I don't find that knowledge useful at all as I don't have plans to lead the world and it's just boring...

What's worse is that someone tries to kill each other due to different political opinion.

2 Celebrities

For me, talking about celebrities is kind of boring. Plus, famous people may be exciting and fun to learn about, but that's it. Overall, I think Celebrities may be a bit too popular...

Soo basically you expect me to know about some random break-up between two random people in a random part of the earth that I have nothing to do with? And then people look at me like I'm weird if I don't.

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!

Paparazzi is literaly stalking. What bothers me even more is that you're expected to know these random people who you've never even met. Get a life!

3 Insurance

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

4 Government

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

Our government is already the worst everyone knows that why do we need to talk about it

5 Trapezoids

OMG I just had THE best idea for a conversation starter! Trapezoids are soooo interesting! The person I'm talking to is going to fall asleep with excitement!

They're a shape. Woohoo, so exciting.

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

6 Glue

Soo exciting. Let's talk about some random sticky thing called glue for the next hour.

Deliver me a truckload o' puns about glue and sticking... No thanks.

Why would you want to spend the whole day talking about top bond and super glue and their density

Let's stick with your own opinion. Glue is just a thingy to attach other thingies. Nothing exciting here.

7 Weather

"Hey, what's your favorite weather? Mine's sunny because I can go outside without any worry!"

"Rainy... it just calms me..."


Yeah... I don't really see how this helps building a relationship with a person.

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.

8 Sports

I think it's quite an exciting topic to center the conversations around, but only when the individual's involved share interests. Yes, the online talk gets pretty exhausting after a point in 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.

Either participate or watch for moral support for someone you know who plays.

9 Rocks

Really? Unless you're a geologist, sure, but other than that...

I was forced to read about 'em in my geography classes, but I don't see it being useful. And that's despite I like geography...

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..

AKA, Geology. The most boring and useless subject that there has to be.

10 Mathematics

I already burn my brains out doing maths at school, don't talk to me about this unless it's discussing the answers during a test.

No thanks. Math gives everyone headaches, the last thing we need is a conversation.

No! It hurts my mind when I think about numbers!

The Contenders
11 Toes

Why would you want to talk about your dirty disgusting toes and why you have not washed them in a week!

Toes are so boring!

12 Doors

Why doors? Imagine staying over at your friend's house and then all of a sudden your friend talks about doors like: "did you know doors can slap your face?" And "did you know there are wood doors, metal doors, and jail doors?" Unless you have a door fetish, doors are kind of boring to talk about (and I mean doors themselves. Not anything else revolving around doors. Just doors themselves.)

Haven't you heard of Doorz2u, THE most FAMOUS door company in the world. Oh come on, it's interesting!*


Wait what, people talk about these?

Unless, of course, it's the band.

13 Facebook

One time, some of the guys on the facebook messenger thing were talking about guns... Few hours later, he told us that he got an advertisement about cheap rifles for sale and that's just creepy!

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.

Don't have it, don't care about it.

14 Traffic

How can you sit in traffic and start talking about the spaces of the card and how many white cars there are or what the red green and yellow light mean. You would get bored because in this country there is not a day you will pass the road without seeing 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.*

Who even likes traffic?

15 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!

Gossips leads to nothing

Not my problem.

16 Physics

So boring yet so hard

17 Baby Showers

I don't like babies to begin with, so why would I want to talk about them?

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

18 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!

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?

19 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...

"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.

20 Twitter Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, also known as "tweets", restricted to 280 characters.

I don't have it, I don't care about it.

21 Work

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

22 Dust particles
23 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.

This game is only for rich people who can afford those white shorts and polo. Super boring

I don't play this and I don't think I ever will.
