The Boredoms: experts
…it's just that the new monotony is so intensely sustained that you can't get bored…
—Lester Bangs on the Stooge's Fun House album[1]

Random factoid: Did you know… that the word "bye" is a contraction of the phrase "God be with ye"?

Has a mountain of crazy to show,
With unscientific panic
And rituals satanic
And complots from aeons ago.

Bored? Nothing to do? Well, there are things you can do to help out around RationalWiki, and maybe even educate yourself a little too:

  • Research and write an article about something.
  • If you don't have a subject in mind, pick one from the wanted pages, or the "to do" list. This is a list of links that people have created for articles that don't exist yet.
  • Visit the RationalWiki:Contents portal for a quick look at the wide variety of high quality RationalWiki articles, all arranged topic-wise for navigational ease.
  • Have a look through the articles nominated for deletion or non-mission articles and comment on their talk page or improve them if you can.
  • Read a few of our articles (some of them are actually interesting), and improve/expand/correct/copyedit them if you find they need it.
  • Update your user page, or build some new userboxes.
  • Click here (or the "Random page" button to the left) and see where it takes you.
  • Start at a random point on Special:Allpages and read (and improve) as many articles as you can be bothered.

Other ways of reducing boredom:

  • go down the pub or the local Saloon
  • play some Bingo at your local retirement home
  • write an Essay
  • visit a Webshite and Debate
  • join Conservapedia & argue (it only lasts seconds but it's fun)
  • laugh
  • put on a (porno?) DVD
  • sleep
  • make out
  • disprove relativity
  • build a particle accelerator
  • breed (with?) a goat
  • read a book
  • write a book
  • learn to play a musical instrument
  • sit staring blankly into space
  • get a life!
  • create your own wiki
  • install Gentoo
  • play Tetris (shown to improve rational thinking!)
