    But the little squirrel is a red squirrel. We don't have those here. We don't even have gray squirrels here. What we have are maniacs who drive like they were the only vehicle on the road, sometimes even on the left, as if they were in England.

    Hi there petal, here are some sites I very much enjoy when boredom hits.

    Firstly is https://www.stumbleupon.com/ great for boredom as once you sign up it will randomly shunt you about the internet based on your interests. I have discovered some pretty obscure fascinating sites as a result.

    Next is http://www.cracked.com/ It has a range of funny articles and some fascinating insights into various things. Most the stuff there is written in a satirical manner. But there is some serious stuff there as well.


    There is also http://listverse.com/ which features lists of ten on a range of subjects. Like Ten Myths about historical figures we still believe.

    If you think the entire world is doom and gloom I also read here so I don't suffer too much negativity bias. http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/

    If I want a bit of mind food I go here. http://documentaryheaven.com/ It has tons of free to watch documentaries.

    If I want further mind food I also go here. http://www.ted.com/talks/browse Which has fascinating talks on a vast range of subjects. Many are pretty profound.
    If I want to watch random videos that are often interesting in some capacity. I go here. http://www.wimp.com/


    Lastly if I want no mind food at all and raw escapism. I go to http://www.kongregate.com/ Which hosts a ton of games that blessedly are not like Facebook games. Although some of those games are on there but mostly not.

    Hopefully those prove helpful to you or any one else. Take care.

    Cannot speak highly enough on the ted talks website on Adams post, literally a wide range of subjects it covers and also gives fantastic insight and food for thought

    For all things hitchiking which in the uk is a dying art - mostly nowadays the only hitchikers you see are guys/gals carrying trade plates on the way home from delivering vehicles to dealership
