sooo boring . . . or is it?

from SciTech daily:

To a philosopher, boredom is not boring at all, and to the reader of this new work on boredom, it is surprisingly fascinating [the story]

It's a book review. The book being reviewed is a study of boredom from a philosophical history perspective.

It's funny, but this article could have been a little less boring if the author had actually had a point to make other than noticing, significantly, that the book that was being reviewed never mentioned Sartre, who was the king of boredom.

There are some intriguing thoughts on the Meaning of Life, however, that would be worthy of further study.
