37. Get a CD player or MP3 player, load up some good tunes, turn up the volume really high, and walk around your neighborhood. Study your environment, watch the animals, breathe the air, listen to your music and walk in rhythm. Ponder the meaning of life, close your eyes and pretend to walk on another plane of existence.

38. Take some prescription drugs that will knock you out. Go to sleep and try to dream, or have an out-of-body experience. If you succeed, keep a journal, write down your discovery, and submit it online to be discussed.

39. Watch TV and study the commercials. Try to pick up on subliminal messages.

40. Buy a HUGE Lego set and attempt to build something (a lot of them have step by step guides)

41. Redesign your room

42. Go (pretend) vampire/ghost hunting. Wait until midnight, wear dark clothing and bring night equipment (read guides on night-ops online). Bring a camera, or better yet, a video camcorder. Find an abandoned house or a cornfield, or any other interesting areas to explore. Go with some friends, or go by yourself. Create a documentary and pretend you’re in the movie Blair Witch Project. Watch a scary movie or documentary before heading out to get the psychological effect going. Pick up on every suspicious thing you see. Be sure to film all your greatest moments. That morning, watch the film, edit it, put in some creepy spy music, and show it to all your friends. Do this every night, create your own series, and post it on the web site you made. If it gets popular, you’ll be too busy maintaining your web site to even come close to boredom.

43. Create your own music. Obtain music creation software, or buy an expensive musical keyboard and record it to MIDI onto your computer. Put your work on your web site for all your friends to listen to. Maybe start your own band or group. Sell out, make money, and never be bored again!

44. Lock yourself in your room and get extremely drunk. Set up a web cam so all your friends (and creepy pedophiles) can watch you. The next morning, watch the video and notice all the stupid/funny things you do when you’re drunk. Remember this the next time to go to a party.

45. Create your own elixir, make it do something magical like increase your speed, your strength, your stamina, or your intelligence. Rely solely on the psychological effect. Sell it online or to any of your stupid friends. Once they discover that it’s not real, deny all of it and move on to a different trade. Keep all the money you made to start your new trade.

46. Start a mailing list. Send out funny jokes, stories, pictures, interesting links, web blogs, news articles, game reviews, etc. Once it gets popular, put ads in your emails and make lots of money. Start your own pyramid scheme for your stupid friends. After all this, you’ll wonder why you didn’t scam your stupid friends before, isn’t it profitable?!?!

47. Create an explosion and record it on video. Put it on your web site.

48. Socially engineer a rumor. Make it something extremely interesting and controversial. Tell all your friends, and tell them to tell everyone else. This is a good way to get back at someone you really hate.

49. Create your own hoax. Develop several fake news web sites and post them on the internet and search engines.

50. Create your own boredom list and submit it! Fight the war on boredom!!!
