This country is full of boring people watch

    Does anyone else find that their peers are all but entirely homogenous, interested in football, RnB, getting wrecked in clubs full of identical looking prostitutes, and not much else?

    Anyone else think that they would have been happier having been born a century ago, when people were less dull? If enough people agree with this I will present a petition to Mr Cameron to look more closely at time travel research.

    I'm conscious of the fact that I've had some wine.

    I don't have many English friends as I live in London, so I don't find the people dull. I think this might be the case when you go to more English cities, towns and villages though.

    At least part of the reason why you think people were less dull a century ago is probably that the ones that are still remembered are mainly the interesting ones. There have always been boring people, and there have always been people who feel lonely and out of place among them.

    But of course, the grass is always greener... in this case, a century ago. Ironically, because I'm sure a lot of people think of it as black-and-white, or maybe sort of sepia...

    Because you know what's not boring?

    Posting a complaint online about how boring people are. No, that's the height of excitement.

    Keep living wild, buddy.

    some wine, or you had some fine wine? :p:

    Dull? You may think its dull but I'd rather you keep it to yourself about it. The fact your anonymous shows there'll be alot of enrage people at your doorstep if you said everyone especially peers that they are 'dull'.

    People may think your 'dull'. Just because your interest is different to theirs, doesn't make either side better. It's their life, if they love enjoying what they're doing, let them be.

    How does it concern you? Or is it the fact that your not knowledgable in the area of clubs, RnB and football?

    Lets put you on the hotspot with you and a person you refer to someone who is dull. The area of question is football? Who is dull now?


    Please don't write people off like that. You won't make any friends that way. Keep it to yourself and think what you say. It explains alot why you posted this anonymous.

    well I occasionally like getting wrecked in clubs, but I do wish sometimes that I had access to people who were interested in the kind of things I am.

    I agree. Parties are so formulaic. Even fancy dress and theme parties. Always involves people drinking and talking about football, tv, films, music, work and holidays, occasionally spiced with a "war story" about a fight someone got into or juicy piece of gossip, and ends in snogging with or leering at drunk girls or stepping out of the way of someone's projectile vomit.

    Parties should be different to this sometimes. Don't know how. Mystery murder parties, maybe, along that sort of theme.

    you think they're dull, they think you're dull, live and let live as they say, as long as no one is hurting anyone, folks can do what ever makes them happy as far as I'm concerned, clubbing every night, or curled up reading a book, what ever, it's your life, do what you want.

    Hypocrisy, thy name is Anonymous 2. Seriously, leave off the attention-seeking big font (It hurts my eyes, I'm tired anyway :mad:), and don't complain about OP being anonymous when you are. Stop trying to troll on a troll thread.

    Obvious trolls are obvious.

    Although, just my little input, you might not have liked what was considered "cool", and "fashionable" back then either, OP, just because it was cool and fashionable. It's perfectly possible. All those hairstyles look gorgeous on TV, but they'd be even more trouble than straightening your hair every morning, and I can't even be bothered with that! So no doubt I'd have not cared about my clothes or hair back then either, and just picked a few things I liked the look of, even though they weren't fashionable. We idealise the past (I'm very guilty of that, just to say, although not all of it, like World War Two was definitely not beautiful, and not something we need to live again), and we always think the past seems prettier, and the fashions were better. Well, I think that now, but luckily I'm perfectly free to wear 1950's or 1920's dresses if I felt like it (although I have no money for them). Nobody could stop me now. Just be thankful that everytime a good fashion makes way for a new one, you now have another vintage lot you could wear, on top of all the other past fashions. I like it.

    They're 'LADS'!! Having a session full of immense drinking, a tasty kebab, flirting with lots of women, arguing about football and having some 'EPIC banter' is just what they do!!

    Whether something is boring or not is simply a matter of personal opinion.

    No one and everyone in this country is boring. Live with it.
