About Random Things to Do

Hey, are you bored? Probably, since you're on this website. Luckily we have ideas for stuff to do to cure boredom. If you aren't alone, we have suggestions for what to do with friends too!

Are you up for a stupid challenge or do you just want to do something boring? Or maybe something weird? Are you bored in class and looking for a thing to do at school, or at McDonald's?

Maybe you want to tell a dumb joke to your brother or sister, text a stupid message to a friend, or even prank call somebody. You could also try to be creative and write a short story or film a funny video. Otherwise you can just do nothing, I guess.
