Most Boring Things


The Top Ten

1 School

I can't believe that almost everyone thinks school is horrible. Again, humans only think fun and entertainment, but they don't think about HOW they get their fun. Nowadays, we get vacations and devices by using money. How do we get money? By getting a job. How do we get a job? By applying for one. How do we GET accepted? By having a good record and decent grades. How do we get decent grades and good behavior? Going to school. If you think about it, if we didn't go to school, we would have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO! Except playing games but they are a waste of time and do nothing to benefit you. School helps us survive life. We have to apply what we know to survive. If there wasn't education, there wouldn't be games on phones, laptops, barely any entertainment. LOOK AT US. Our parents had enough money for us to go to school. They pay for our education without regretting it. And then we come to hate school because we simply just think about entertainment. Look at the poor people. The ...more

Yeah I can relate to that. But if it was entertaining then we would like it. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

I don't think school is terrible, I actually like school, and the reason the natives got wiped out, is because they couldn't read or write. They also couldn't speak English, so the settlers wrote agreements in English saying that the settlers would get the natives land, and then tell these natives that it said that they would share the land. In reality the settlers were taking all of their land, because they couldn't read. If you actually went to school, you would know that.

On a different note, school helps us learn, so we can get jobs, and get money, so we can enjoy life on earth while we are here. You don't want to be stuck cleaning port-a-potties, do you?
(No offense to the people who do, we thank you very much! )

School is only a bad thing when you have a bad attitude about it. So if you think school is a bad thing, just change your attitude about it, and have a good time.
I can't say I get bored sometimes, because I do, but if you change your attitude and try ...more

You realize, without school you won't get a good job, you won't be accomplished, and no one will want to hang out with you because you meet most friends at school and other kids (maybe your friends) go to the same school so you feel left out when they talk about it. Sure, sometimes school can be boring, but (grown up talking right now warning but it's true) it's really what's getting you into a good middle school, then high school, then college, then a good job, then good money, then a partner, then a house of your own, then kids (optional), and from then on a happy life for the rest of your days. Go to school, and remember reading this when you're bored out of your mind. LOL. - Swiftdawn

I have to do a boring research project right now but I’m going on TheTopTens instead! - sadical

2 Nothingness

Nothingness is the most boring thing on earth totally!

I think nothingness is the worst thing ever!

Nothingness is the time to daydream. We ALL daydream during school. It feels like you can never daydream during the day, always needing to be on top of what's going on, which is obviously good for your mind, but it gets stressful. So, when there is nothing to do, use it to... daydream! Daydreaming is actually pretty fun, because it trains the mind. It helps you explore your mind and how much you can expand yourself. - Untildawn8

At least with school you can walk around sometimes whisper to your friends etc. but nothingness is purely nothing you can't do anything like walk around and whisper to your friends. - reed2009

3 Chores

Everyday. My mom says I don't have chores. It's a lie. Clean your room. Vacuum (Not everyday). Put your clothes away.

Doing work for people sometimes for nothing how boring! - Pokemaster3000

If I had a list of chores on paper it is going down the paper shredder

Chores are like so boring

4 The Bible

I don't like that. It's very offensive and rude.

If you don't Believe in God then don't believe, but respect other people's religions and beliefs. And definitely don't tell us to "crawl back in our Jesus hole", that is by far the most offensive thing I have ever read.

Take it off the list

No the Bible is the most important thing on earth

He is a show off

I hate him so much and he's not just boring! HE'S ANNOYING!

His new songs like Love Yourself are boring.

6 Extra work for nothing

Should at least get payed or something! - Pokemaster3000

Exactly! Totally not worth it. I think we should decrease the amount of homework and get paid for it.

That's homework we should at least get paid or very goodly rewarded

Pointless - christangrant

7 Watching paint dry

Ever tried LISTENING to paint dry..? - Britgirl

It is as fun as staring at a rock all day.

Just like Watching Grass Grow - christangrant

It's used as a simile for something uninteresting for a reason

8 No Internet

Boring me to death! Nearly everything I love to do using my phone/computer requires Internet, so no Internet = no phone/computer - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

This one period of time I had no internet at my fathers shop I hated it I had the whole halo seres and still got board

I just wanna shot myself; just kidding, but it is so boring

It really is. It's also one of the worst things that's ever happened to me. You know, my kindle has terrible wifi, and it's very annoying. - PhilTheCorgi

9 Watching the worst football team ever to exist

Watching ManU play nowadays is more boring than anything else

How rubbish can a team get. - Pokemaster3000

Not the Patriots I hate them. Go Panthers hence the name - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

10 Watching people play when you can't

That is the most boring thing in the world to me!

Get's rather boring and can make you jellous - Pokemaster3000

Exactly. Whenever I get a new game, my family always plays it first, and I have to watch them play and my opportunity comes when they get bored of the game and I finally get ti play it, not only it is boring it is frustrating.

I actually enjoy watching people play games - DrayTopTens

The Contenders

11 Jail

Yeah it's boring! Because there's all stupid people in there

Some days I am bored but other days I keep active playing with myself. Sometimes I start a fight with the wimps but then I get sent to solitary.

It's not boring, it's scary. (Don't get beaten by cops/prisoners, more importantly... Don't drop the soap)

But if you’re in jail, you probably deserve it. - sadical

12 Reading boring books

Why would you be reading a boring book? Just stop. Makes sense really. - Britgirl

Such as the trumpet of the swan it's a boring book by BIG time

I literally almost fell asleep reading Tom and Huckleberry's "adventures" - Swiftdawn

Or any book (in my opinion) - sadical

13 Waiting for Your Phone to Recharge

It's happened to me on my iPad, I just sat and stared, then I had to do chores since I wasn't doing anything... # sad life

It's even worse when you're about to go out.

Waiting for my phone to recharge is like having no internet

14 Movies with Stories and Not Enough Robots and Explosions

Transformers (2007), for example, I suppose? I think that could bore kids to death. These people just want more just because it's America. I do have nothing against it.

The only good thing about 2007 transformers is that my favorite Linkin Park song is in it that's it. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

What...? I prefer movies with a story. - sadical

15 Refreshing a web page multiple times

Happened 5 minutes ago - Ananya

It is so boring


16 Not getting paid

I want a new phantom Orion but when I do something like clean or pick up dog poop I'm told afterwards "your supposed to do it anyways" and the only thing I can think of is mow the lawn or something

I just want money, money, money and yes you got it right more money! - Pokemaster3000


It so boring waiting and then not getting any money at all aah

17 School Work/Homework

When I have homework I don't need a pencil all I need is a PAPER SHREDDER!

They waste your time instead of playing

Hey let's spend about 7 hours of our time to homework, because we all have no life!

Ikr? Stop homework, because it damages your mental health, takes away your fun, etc. - PhilTheCorgi

18 England

England is NOT BORING! I've lived here all my life and it's always been awesome!

England is the most wonderful and interesting country in the world, full of beautiful things!

It's so oppressive. Grey, cold, wet, concrete. People pretend others are not there. Full of sick politicians, that'll sell their soul for someone to think they are secretly clever. No one can express themselves without first obtaining permission by the equally boring police. Cameras everywhere. Costs $10 to park a car, for 1 hour. Drive to central London, is charged via your number plate. You're charged illegally for services you never used. Public transport is full of angry non British people with a sense of entitlement and their aggressive loud children.

It is a bit rainy but it is not really that bad also that is a bit racist

Have you ever even been to England. Not everyone drinks tea and eat crumpets for breakfast lunch and dinner and they do not ware top hats and powdered Whigs. All of the things you described can be associated better with North Korea than with England.

The hell? England is cool - KingSlayer93316

19 Not going on holiday when someone else in you family is

Yes, Exactly like all Home Alone Movies where movies first one where Kevin McCallister has to stay home all alone and watch out for 2 burglars, Harry and Marv! The other 4 are similar but a little bit different.

you know what? it has happened to me a lot times and I hate it so much!

Yes! I hate staying at home being bored all summer while my relatives go on vacations and having fun

I like when this happens because I hate traveling

20 Staring at the wall

It's only interesting for a few seconds unless you have a really interesting wall. Like if the wallpaper is one of the weird ones where you see shapes in it.

The epic wall chronicles

I have posters on my wall, so that’s fine - KingSlayer93316

21 Work
22 Fish

They steal my bait when I'm not looking

Nah, look at how many unique and bizarre fish out there - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

All they do is swim in stupid circles all day

23 History Shows

20% alien conspiracy theories
20% apocalypse theories (some of them realistic but most of them stupid)
20% ghosts and paranormal stuff
10% illuminati crap and other secret societies
10% idiots trying to predict the future and saying things like "Russia will annex the US" and "the dollar will collapse"
10% sensationalized war battles
9% religious freaks
1% actual history

What I love history shows

History shows are so terrible! I do not like them.

24 Waiting 1 hour for a page to load

I think I can watch the paint dry, or even flowers grow, but this one is both boring and annoying as hell (especially when you visit the countryside where network is so damn slow). - Kiteretsunu

Waiting for 5 minutes already make me wanna smash my phone/computer, let alone 1 hour! (I'm a very impatient person) - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

That's what happened with me trying to get onto thus

25 Reading the dictonary

I don't even need to say anything for this one

It would be cool because if you went into court, it would take forever to look the words you would say up in the dictionary

Let's be honest, who wants to read a bunch of words with meanings bunched together

There was a "kid-friendly" dictionary when I was in 3rd grade and it had cuss words in it - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

26 Cloudy Days

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Did you know that cloudy days happen in the summertime? The reason why that happens is that people won't have to suffer from the sun's heat when they do outdoor activities.

Best days ever because you don't have to do ANYTHING outside

Eh. I sit on my ass all day anyway, so what’s the point of going outside? - KingSlayer93316

For me, it doesn’t matter what the weather is, because I stay inside all day!

27 Gardening

It is very boring. There is no question

When I was a kid, I would look for worms and other bugs. Does that count as gardening? - KingSlayer93316

My mom loves gardening, not of my preference. - Ananya

But listening to Garden by Halsey certainly isn’t boring.

29 Watching your parents talk

And I had to listen to my parents talk all the time! Poor me any kid who is talked to by their parents ;-(

I waited in a car for 2 hours that was frying BECAUSE OF MY STUPID MOM

It's always about the same thing repeated 100x - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

30 Road Trips

I slept in the car when my aunt was driving us from Vegas to LA!

31 Soccer Soccer Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. The goal is to score the ball on the other team's goal.

Soccer is the best sport in the world it's your opinion you can't say you hate it because other people love it and no it's not boring take it off this list

Who cares about giving out just to kick a ball

I can't believe it's the number 1 sport, it's not fun to play or watch

There are people with OPINIONS - KingSlayer93316

Agreed. while they taste good, most of the bites you get are of a weird texture that is hard to eat or there is too many bones in em - Morefunthanfun

They r so boring

Baah. That’s all they do - KingSlayer93316

She is crap

Kim memes ass ian

Please be nice, especially to old people, so I'd suggest removing this from this list. Not trying to be mean or hurt your feelings though. I'm just saying, because this is offensive. - PhilTheCorgi

That's offensive to old people. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

People over the age 75 are so boring

Why? Your comment is rude and offensive even when it's your opinion. Think before you post a comment like this. My grandfather became 79 today and he isn't boring! So shut up. - Userguy44

Ya just delete this list only like 3 of these things are boring

How is this on the list

Agreed - Brian865

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

You're just watching people hit a ball back and forth grunting like they're in a lot of pain or something.

It has no point; it's like playing catch with yourself hitting a ball against a wall

Cool who wants to see that guy hit that ball with that racket he's holding!

I think tennis should be replaced with golf. At least you play tennis with another person vs just hitting a ball into a hole
