Boredom — A Great DirectTV Commercial!

08 Sep

“Don’t attend your own funeral as a guy named Phil Shiftly.”  Great commercial.  The primary point seems to be BOREDOM, doesn’t it?

Boredom is a great problem in our over-saturated, technology-addicted culture.

“I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored.”
Louis C.K.

“Is life not a thousand times too short for us to bore ourselves?”
Friedrich Nietzsche

“The Beatles saved the world from boredom.” ― George HarrisonFirefoxScreenSnapz620

“I am never bored; to be bored is an insult to one’s self.”
Jules Renard

“… millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.”
Susan Ertz

“I don’t believe in an afterlife, so I don’t have to spend my whole life FirefoxScreenSnapz619fearing hell, or fearing heaven even more. For whatever the tortures of hell, I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse.”
Isaac Asimov

Questions:

1. What do you when you are bored?

2.  If you could speak to Isaac Asimov (see the last quote), what would you say to him?

    Larry,
    There are only two reasons for being bored: Either one is totally stupid, or has too much money.
    To Isaac Asimov I would say: “i am all with you”.
    John
