Title text: Sometimes the best fun looks like boredom.


This is something to relate to, and a fun observation about part of human nature. Sadly, Cueball doesn't feel like telling Megan what he did, and just gives her an empty answer. What would you have said?


[A man is sitting at a desk, tapping various parts of it]
Man: Hey, I can get different pitches by tapping on different parts of the desk.
[The man starts tapping faster, with both hands]
Man: Sweet, I can do the Jurassic park theme!
[The man taps very rapidly]
[Later, elsewhere]
Friend: So, what did you do all afternoon?
Man: Hung out.

- What can we learn from this? - I've learned that even when we are bored, we can still find lessons all around us. Such as a lesson in variable density of any surface (in this case, wood) and a new method of entertainment (thank you Mr. XKCD). - E-inspired (talk) 16:40, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
