Brickset bonus ball bonanza

hi folks

here come another weekly bonus ball

for any newcomers it is simple to enter simply answer the question and if you are in the first 59 you get allocated a number.  That number is then your own bonusball number and if it matches the UK national lottery draw on Saturday then you win the prize.

the question this weeks is "what makes you bored"

I thought of this question whilst watching yet another episode of the Vampire Diaries with my wife - bored does not even go half the way to describing it.  I get nudged if I nod off as well :)

So answer away - Winner gets a #40107 Winter skating scene.  It will soon be Christmas. 

Good luck all

    In line with @bendybadger 's example - Grey's Anatomy- the wife loves it but it just bores me to tears.

    and a more controversial answer - Technic sets, sorry technic guys but the two sets I tried were so dull to me.

    Eastenders and threads about which sets will be a good investment!

    Downton Abby hands down.

    Had to watch a few episodes with the Mrs. and fell asleep every time within 15 minutes. I thought it was just me, cuz she loves it and plenty of others do too. But when one of the season finales dramatic endings was simply about the old matriarch coming down stairs in a purple dress, that was it for me. Just call me Rip van Winkle.

    Biology classes make me bored, they are usually my nap time, who really wants to learn the detailed steps of cellular respiration anyways? 
    @Shib grey's anatomy has some pretty entertaining episodes, but I agree, some of them are pretty boring.

    Watching Football (Soccer) on television or conversations about Football, cannot see the point, never have and never will. Fortunately the wife only watches when Ireland are playing so I don't have to put up with it that much. 

    Soap operas were another but they eventually got that bad the wife got bored of them to so they are no longer a problem.

    Watching whatever terrible thing my wife has chosen on Netflix.

    Waiting at the doctor's office.  I was just there a few hours ago.  If the appointment is at 11, why do we only get called in at 11:40, and then have to wait even longer?
  • stevecook132stevecook132 Member Posts: 112
    Waiting in airports - life is too short as it is, killing time and being bored is just so...wrong.

    I get temporarily bored after binge-watching an engrossing series that has no more episodes left. First world problems, eh?
  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 3,153
    Boring is coming home from a crap day at work and hearing the missus go on about her crap day at work in great detail - makes me feel like i worked 2 crap days in one.

    Sitting in queues because people don't pay attention to traffic lights, then set off at a snails pace because it gets them an extra 2mpg, whilst causing a loss of 50 mpg for everyone one else they are holding up.
