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'd rather do nothing than go to school. Lunch, PE and break is the only reason I even come to school.

This category is full is school-loving brats who think that school is the "best thing in life" I disagree that school's a good thing... Native people didn't need school, Until the settlers came... And yet, there culture survived until they were wiped out... School is what ruins the definition of life; the state of living by survival. School is nothing but a hellhole, or even worse, a Purgatorial hole! Hate me, I don't care, but school will always be the worst thing in life...

I know it is boring. But it is useful
You may not realise that some of the
Most boring tasks are actually the most beneficial for the function of your brain. We are trying to get rid of boredom the wrong way, instead we should accept boredom as it benefits us.

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

My life is nothing but an empty mind. - Datguyisweird666

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

Good thing my mom doesn't make me do chores. - Datguyisweird666

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

5 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

6 Watching paint dry

Ever tried LISTENING to paint dry..? - Britgirl

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

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

Just like Watching Grass Grow - christangrant

7 No Internet

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

How rubbish can a team get. - Pokemaster3000

10 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)

No one likes jail

The Contenders

11 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

12 Reading boring books

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

I love to read bookworm right here right now

A Wrinkle In Time anyone. Can't believe they are making a movie. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

I love to read but some books are /really/ boring X3

13 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

14 Refreshing a web page multiple times

It is so boring

Happened 5 minutes ago - Ananya


15 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

16 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 dullest country I have been ever (considering all the countries I have live and worked for >3 years)

School is boring and rubbish

20 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

Nobody will wait for 1 hr! - Ananya

21 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.

22 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

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"

What I love history shows

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

I only like American Ride. It's on BYU T.V. if you wanna watch it. Plus byu is free. But you don't have to. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

25 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

26 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

27 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

Its boring

42 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!

43 America

AMERICA IS THE BEST. I do know what you're saying. You try being American, you will never want to go back.

America is great. It helps people all around the world.
