    I find peeling boiled eggs boring, especially if they've been cooked in such a way that the shell only wants to come off in tiny bits rather than large sections.

    I also find cleaning out the kittens' litter tray boring and I have delegated it to my younger son whose feelings of boredom are not within the remit of this thread.

    I'll support that litter tray thing. My two used to be happy to use the mulch in the garden, but a few bird dive-bombings have scared them inside. Definitely boring. 🙁

    pretty much anything that repeats itself...
    circular logic causes my eyes to recede and a stupor clouds my flow...
    on the other hand, i find marble mazes to be fascinating, even tho they tend to repeat themselves...
    i admit to doing the same yoga nearly every day, but, it's not every day so it doesn't count...
    a lot of times when a game of chess is virgin, i anticipate an epiphany that i will suddenly have me see the most brilliant opening move ever played...
    and i push e4...
    that sometimes is boring to me...

    Lengthy power cuts after dark when I am alone at home and it's too early to sleep.

    I used to find that tedious, but then someone showed me a way that makes it quick. It's illogical....you hit the boiled egg on the side & roll it: the middle section crumbles & can be peeled away in a broken ring: then the two ends pop off.
    I would love to know if you try it out.

    I will do what you say to the next boiled egg I encounter.

    Do it under a running tap, is another trade-marked top tip

    I have to call government departments most days and even the intermediatory phone numbers are not answered for 30, 45, 60 minutes at times. So I usually get on with something else & have it on speaker which is annoying for the whole office. Same nauseating poorly played tunes. Then someone answers and they inverably can not answer my question because it's not on thier system, have to wait for a call back from a decision maker.
    I find all ^^^^ that very boring and time wasting.

    Tap water is not drinking water here. Your glib assumption about this matter, I feel, is a mild form of oppression of those of us in the developing world.
