Take up juggling. Start off using something fragile like lightbulbs. This will teach you a new skill and you'll be way far from bored, spending all that time cleaning up broken glass :smile:

[the juggling is actually serious, the glass is not]

I learned to juggle with pieces of light fabric, like gauze. When you toss it, it floats down slowly, giving you time to figure out how to catch it. I never graduated to anything other than gauze, though!

Woolie, would you be interested in learning to play a musical instrument?

I started playing simple, short games online, supposed to be good for keeping us elderly folks brains sharp.

Have you tried the Evil level Sudoku? If so, and they are easy for you, you will be chairman of the bored and bored certified.

I don't care for sudoku, but I really like crossword puzzles, as does my wife. I find them a lot more interesting then figuring out where to put numeric digits in a grid. I'm just about twice your age, and I work crosswords partly for brain exercise, and partly because I like doing them.

They have this invention called a television, and on this invention they show shows (Jules Winnfield, Pulp Fiction). They have this other invention called a computer, and on this invention they have music, email, and games.

Do you live in a rural area or in town? I think if I had a bad leg, I'd invest in a set of crutches and see how far I could wander from home everyday.

Personally, I can't stand sudoku or crossword puzzles. When I have the urge to do mental work I try to teach myself some more algebra, or just do any math word problems I can find.

The other thing is reading novels. If you find an author you like, that can keep your attention for hours.

Have you tried Hive? You can play against a bot or a human on line. Or buy a set and play with friends and family. It's an insect-themed tile placement game that does not require a board.

I hear that there is a substance secreted in our brain that makes us feel bored, the more the volume of it is coming out, the more bored we feel.

That sounds sweet, I remember I hear you sometimes on PF and it's horrible when you get mad.

I know you hate the computer, but try this - if you don't like what it shows you, push the button again:
