Friday boredom

I'm so bored. It's Friday. My brain has already gone home for the weekend. And I can't concentrate at work.

There are not enough mindless threads on EF and facebook to keep my hamster wheel spinning for the last couple of hours.

I think mindless threads should be brought back on EF, atleast for fridays. I mean I have some issues which I want to discuss and get some feedback on but dont think they will last a few secs past the Submit button.

I'm bored shitless too.

It wasn't intended to alleviate your boredom, but to illustrate our mortal turmoil on the never ending treadmill of life, to which you have already eluded.

Funny you should say that. I just popped to Aldi where a business man was sat in the restaurant, all suited and booted, watching porn on his laptop. He was tucked in a corner but failed to notice the glass walls behind him allowing all the shoppers watch his antics

99 bottles of beer would'nt last an hour. Better start with infinite bottles of beer on the wall unless some nerd gets involved and starts drawing out mathematical quotients.
