5 Reasons Men Aren’t as Bored as Women

A recent study found those with high levels of boredom were 37% more likely to be dead at the end of the study period compared to those who weren’t bored, and women reported being bored twice as often as men (source: click here -> as reported by Sxephil).

Without going into study specifics and over analyzing the methods used in the study, let’s focus on the above mentioned findings and how they could be interpreted. That’s right, we’re not here to talk about scientific studies, but merely to over generalize the results.

5 reasons men aren’t as bored as women (in no particular order):

Men are more likely to…
1. Watch sports. Hockey, football, baseball, basketball and on a slow day, I’ll watch some darts if only for the commentary. In British accent, “One hundred and eighty! Amazing!”

2. Play videogames. When sports aren’t on, or if men don’t like sports, they’ll play videogames. How can you be bored when you’re continually shooting people in the face?

3. Watch porn. I hear, through the grapevine, this one is true.

4. Masturbate. This is related to #3, but can also be exclusive. I mean, maybe someone left a Sears catalog lying around…

5. Drink lots of alcohol This one is definitely arguable, but I think in general, girls are too smart to drink as much as most men.  Believe me, I’ve met some women who can drink men under the table, and to them I send cyber high fives (aka cy-5s).

Some of CCs female readers might argue they do some or all of the above rather frequently, and I raise a glass to them, but I’m speaking in generalities and open to comments and suggestions from anyone who has something else to throw in the top 5. This list is not set in stone nor exhaustive by any means.

Top 5 reasons people die because they’re bored:

1. There was nothing else to do. Ceasing to live is so much easier than finding something else to do.

2. The cable/internet was down. Life is pretty dull without reruns of Caroline in the City.

3. Erectile Dysfunction. Made #3 and #4 in the above list useless.

4. Read CorruptCamel.com regularly. *Yawn* if life has come down to reading this blog maybe it’s not worth living.

5. Wanted to be a zombie. Bored, nothing to do. It’s worth a shot. May as well join the zombie apocalypse’s winning team.

So in conclusion videgames, porn, masturbation and beer (in moderation) save lives. Was there ever a doubt?

    my boyfriend would suggest that you put SMOKING WEED as the first point to “Top 5 reasons men aren’t as bored as women”.

    @Rockin Ruhul Ah weed, of course. I’m not sure if that can usurp a top 5 spot, but for some I’m sure it’s #1. And they can probably attest that it’s especially great when combined with the current top 5.

      I didn’t say they don’t, I just said men are more likely to. I’m not that clueless. Just a little.
