How not to get bored during a lockdown

The everything is fascinating challenge

  1. Select a subject that you know not much about and that also at first sight doesn’t really interest you (and that even you may find disgusting).
  2. Open up your mind. Take a deep breath. Set aside all your prejudices. And let it flow.
  3. Start looking for things, knowledge, applications, pictures, video’s, etc. that make you not so interesting subject interesting, if not fascinating.
  4. Come back here and tell us about your newly found interest or fascination.

Well, I was feeling pleased with all the things I’ve done during quarantines and then this popped up:

Of what I gathered elsewhere, he was feeling bored during quarantines and since now he had free time, he worked on improving our knowledge on the potential creation of warp drives. :innocent:

I need to watch the full lecture now … I must know more and even if someone doesn’t like the subject, they can use it as @Atorrante 's challenge theme :slight_smile:

Today I made a cardboard boomerang. I don’t know if it will work, but tomorrow I’ll find out.


A less amusing activity for a lockdown is to change your bedsheets. Let’s hope there’s a new one.

“Ok then boomerang.
I hope you’ll be happy and live a happy life.
I hope you see great things and visit many beautiful places.
I hope you find someone who loves you as I did. I hope you’ll love him too. I hope it’s someone who cares for you. Someone to go back to at the end of the day.
We could have been great together. But this is no time for regrets.
Most probably a dog will just shit on you, so this could be your last kiss ever… no, I’m not crying…”

There was no comeback. I looked at him one last time. Then I left.

I’m surprised no-one linked this thread.

I’ve been watching a lot of Conan lately.

This is the “remotes” playlist, aka things that aren’t either interviews or sketches, ie. “outdoor exploits”: Conan Interviews "Late Night" Associate Producer Jordan Schlansky - "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" - YouTube

Lots of things to get interested in here:

Here are some geography channels I watch:

The major series on this channel are Map Men and Unfinished London.

This channel is largely about the UK rail network.

The channel with the lowest production value, this one is essentially a guy lecturing with Google Maps.


And then channels I’d classify as travelogue (apart from Tom Scott who is already very widely known):

Mainly Europe.

Mainly Russia and the rest of the former USSR.

Mainly Africa.

I’ve started working with clay lately and I made a Totoro that I’m kind of proud of. He looks like he’s sleeping but he’s dead.
