Critical Thinking lessons are really useful in some respects, in that they inspire interesting discussions, and they get people thinking. And then, they are also a reminder of the common attitudes that get on my nerves.

Some things to do when you're bored

A theory that I still hold but haven't well tested is that often, when it comes to the question, we know the answer, but not how to get it out of ourselves. I find one way that sometimes helps me is to actually try to help someone else, and that allows me to think more effectively about what I'm trying to do.

I get bored very easily, and now and then when it's seriously bad, to the point of indifferent lethargy, I google "Things to do when you're bored." The problem is that everything I find seems to be written by people who were so bored, they just tried to amuse themselves by writing a bunch of crazy shit, which is of no help to people who are actually bored, and provides only a bit of limited reading. So I wrote a bunch of crap down to try and help me with boredom, and I thought I'd share my ideas - omitting all the ones that are very specific to myself.
