We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
They say that only boring people get bored. If skiing, boating, hanging out in the City, attending shows, going hunting, traveling to new places, starting a new business, etc. is not enough stimulation, try this:
Boredom can happen to anyone. In fact, it probably happens more often to people on the go than it does to boring sedentary types. Boredom happens as a result of enforced inactivity for example. Sometimes we have to wait and waiting is boring. Repititious activity can be boring. Like if you climbed that cliff so many times you have it memorized, it might get boring. Then you might get careless and die.
When I was growing up, my mother had a quote taped to the fridge that I remember as being from Pasteur but memory may fail in this instance. The quote was "I am never bored. Being bored is an insult to one's self."
I liked that idea.
