America Has Highest Boredom Rate
America is said to have the highest per capita boredom of any spot on earth! We know that because we have the greatest number of artificial amusements of any country in the world. People have become so empty that they can’t even entertain themselves. They have to pay other people to amuse them, to make them laugh, to try to make them feel warm and happy and comfortable for a few minutes, to try to lose that awful, frightening, hollow feeling, that terrible dreaded feeling of being lost and alone. (Billy Graham in Who Said What by George Sweeting, p. 72).
