Things to Do When Bored: Tea

Set up shop on the side of a busy street and offer to read tea leaves for people. When someone stops, look into the cup and tell the dude that that the tea says, “IT is going to happen. The Thing you’ve been dreading is approaching. It is nearly upon you. The only way to evade it is to pay this wise sage $50.” See how many people fall for it.

(Disclaimer – give their money back. I do not endorse stealing from people. I do, however, endorse laughing at people’s stupidity. So feel free to laugh obnoxiously in their face as you hand their money back.) 

Things to do when bored: Time Machine

Put on a white lab coat and rush into a family-run business. Ask what year it is. When they tell you, yell, “Dang it! Missed by three years!” And then dash out.

Three years later, walk into the same store wearing the same thing and ask, “What year is it now?” When they answer do a celebratory dance and yell, “It works! It finally works!”
