Cloud and Lining

Dark Cloud: Philosophy Lectures make the list of candidates for the Most Boring Thing in the World.

Silver Lining: It's currently candidate #148, after golf (#1), politics (#6), shopping (#13), tennis (#15), Al Gore (#16), fishing (#18), Oprah (#20), reality television (#38 and #47), Chicago (#50), NASCAR (#51), abstract algebra (#56), iguanas (#59), geometry (#65), soccer (#71), Catholic weddings (#85), chess (#89), cricket (#92), weddings in general (#93), baseball (#96), banking (#97), working for the state of California (#102), checkers (#107), symphony (#110), Abercrombie and Fitch (#122), zucchini (#128), football (#132), being dead (#133), chemistry (#135), and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (#136).

I can see the advertisements now: PHILOSOPHY: MORE EXCITING THAN ZUCCHINI!

Dark Cloud: The list is constantly changing, and it's hard to imagine that philosophy lectures won't rise higher in the ranks of candidates for the Most Boring Thing in the World.

Silver Lining: Is there really any danger of philosophy lectures ever being ranked higher than abstract algebra, Al Gore, or working for the State of California?

Dark Cloud: Can anyone honestly say that most philosophy lectures are less boring than iguanas?

Silver Lining: Reality television is so boring it needs more than one spot.
