Miscellaneous Ramblings – The Bored Edition

This edition of Miscellaneous Ramblings takes on the bored theme. It’s the weekend and I figure no one is really in a mood to work – you rather just stay home and be bored to tears. Well, this post is for you!

This edition of Miscellaneous Ramblings is once again, brought to you by Twitter. I asked for boring posts and you guys delivered! Follow me on Twitter and you might end up in a future rambling.

The Unofficial Guide To Buying Your Wife A Gift

Derek “Bored Out of His Mind” Semmler has written the The Unofficial Guide To Buying Your Wife A Gift. Basically, it boils down to, “Ask her.” However, Mr. Semmler saw fit to use up 1,000 words to come to that conclusion. The perfect reading for a boring weekend!

How to: Install an iPhone Car Deck in a Corvette

Mr. Gary “I can’t install an Invisible Shield” Ng made this submission but I’m not sure how boring it really is. First of all, the Corvette is a really cool car and the iPhone is really cool phone. I doubt either products are boring. Maybe the process of installing the iPhone so it works as a car deck in the Corvette is boring. Check it out and decide for yourself.

I’m A Political Science Major but I Hate Politics

You can tell that Samir from Left The Box should have stayed in the box instead of going to school. Why does a guy who hates politics major in political sciences? Maybe he was bored! In another post, Samir writes that some people don’t need school. I guess Samir is not one of them.

Stuff White People Like

Apparently, this blog went from zero to 25 million visitors in just four months. That tells me one of two things. Either the blog did some amazing marketing to get all that traffic, or there are millions of bored white people who don’t know what they like and need a blog to tell them. I wonder what the answer is?

Watch Me Get a Haircut

I knew I was bored when I made a video of me getting a haircut. However, how bored would you have to be to watch a video of me getting a haircut? 😈

    Zen blogging thought: Do boring posts grouped together equal an interesting post?

    1. Why do you always get the flat haircut, John? You’re not in the army!

      1. Terry Tay says:

        Perhaps he should go for the smilie look 😛 and take it all off 😆
        Post the video if you ever decide to shave your head…you never know John…that could be the viral video that sends you to blogger video stardom 😕
        😆

        I’ve always wondered that. That is so 1990s. Why not a total buzzcut?

  2. It’s 4AM and I can’t sleep after finishing playing hockey and grabbing a pizza and a pitcher of 1516 at Martini’s. I had hoped to make it to Dot Com Pho but I’ll be a zombie. A bored zombie. In the meantime, if you’re bored, check out the Ferrari here:

    this post is best example of how to lose some visitors and rss subscribers 😆

    1. Flimjo says:

      OK, I had to laugh when I read this comment. Sorry. That was witty.

  4. Money Kacper says:

    What can I say. Booooring post 😉

  5. Hey, I wasn’t bored while looking for lunch in your hair!…but I couldn’t find it and the video ended and… now i’m bored again.

    Love it :p

  6. Liane says:

    I made AN EFFORT to visit your blog and your gonna show me yourself having a haircut???

    I’m getting back to my blogging work for now JC. 😉

  7. Siddharth says:

    Bored people or we can say info hunger make websites visited. Whatever, the main thing is that a visitor visits our websites and he /she gets some new info. And yeah, I have seen this video!! 😆

  8. betshopboy says:

    The unimaginative hair style was a big bore, I was indeed bored to tears.

    Besides hair dressing, Tammy would make a fine videographer though! 😛

  9. The trick is to be too busy to be bored . . .

    It’s 5:50 AM and I’m sitting the dry sauna at my house sweating like nobody’s business … It’s a very good way to relax …

    And yes, before you ask, I do have access inside my sauna. The computer and monitor sits outside and a wireless keyboard sits inside…

  10. This post was very boring!

  11. I checked out Stuff White People Like and it is hilarious. Not only that, he gets around 1,000 comments per post, insane!

  12. Mubin says:

    Thats alot fo gray john, How old are you?

      1. Flimjo says:

        Don’t look it, man.

      2. Jimson Lee says:

        The Asian Equation is:

        How old you think they look, then ADD 5 years for men, and 7 years for women. You’ll be dead on every time.

  13. Paolo U says:

    I was wondering when will be the miscellaneous rambling would be. It’s about time.

  14. Tim says:

    Stuff White People don’t like: web design, obviously.

    1. Zedomax says:

      Lol…maybe I should start StuffAsianPeopleLike.com 👿 👿 👿

  15. pennyblogger says:

    yes this post was boring, but it did get to stuffwhitepeoplelike.com and there was plenty to read there. christian lander is on to a killer concept; do something that is only acceptable because (A. he’s white and B. it’s about white people), but still edgy enough to get the attention of the media and 25 million visitors, and then just list anything he can possibly imagine. Essentially he can continue the site forever because he does no research or fact finding and just lists stuff off. … headphones, cameras, candles, soup, magazine subscriptions….

  16. Simon says:

    I bet now the haircut gets written off as a business expense now he’s blogged about it! 😉

    1. John Chow says:

      I would but since I don’t have to pay to get my haircut, there’s nothing to deduct. 😈

      1. Do those hair stylists give you a happy ending and love you long time?

        1. Sha says:

          LMFAO I just died. Nice one.

      2. Nice idea, maybe I should try out that school for a future buzz cut…hehe 😎

        1. John Chow says:

          They will charge you. I’m the only one who gets free haircuts. 😈

  17. Gabriel Lai says:

    I’ve got my hair cut too…! I thought of getting my hair box like you too John, but that Lady boss that cut my hair say.. “Don’t….!!”
    Else, I’ll have the same hair as you, but younger version.. I’ve written here too: http://www.gabriellai.com/busy-tired-day/
    Just to share 😀

    Please tell me how to get a hair cut for free..!

  18. Derek says:

    John, you must’ve been so bored that you spelled my name wrong. 🙁

  19. Sha says:

    I saw the Stuff White People Like site a while back. It cracked me up, because a lot of that stuff is true.

  20. Infogle says:

    Now i think the most things you do is free for you… isn’t it ? :mrgreen:

    1. Syed Balkhi says:

      I don’t think the haircut was free

      1. Sha says:

        Actually, John said above that he doesn’t have to pay to get his hair cut.

  21. Paolo U says:

    It becomes a humor when John Chow writes about boring stuff. i will never do that on my blog.

    1. Gabriel Lai says:

      Nah dude…. I think we can’t be serious always, and writes about serious stuff, somehow sense of humor does make people laugh especially when anyone is upsad. I think John did a great job.

      It’s hard to hold a camera while cutting your hair, right John? When I get my hair cut, I move a little bit, I’ll get scolded. So better sit tight 😆 😆

  22. Bloddard.com says:

    Is it simply a boring post or is it a way for the Chowster to keep us all visiting and talking about JohnChow.com? Hmmmmm….He isn’t evil for no reason. 😉

  23. I like it. Everything can’t be about how to make internet money.

    And to answer the question you posed. Oh they know what they like, but it took a Canadian to tell them. Not you John, the professional copywriter who created that blog.

  24. I could only get into about 1:10 of the video, it was just too boring.

  25. John, you should make a follow up video: “Watch me take a crap after Dot Com Pho”.

  26. Flimjo says:

    Watch me cook. John Chow.

  27. Pyjammez says:

    Nice video.. I watched it from start to finish.

  28. Pingback: John Chow? WTF
  29. Fitness Site says:

    so now we have to watch hair cut videos on MMO blogs.
    Bad video 😆 you enjoyed with that girl. 😈

  30. Syed Balkhi says:

    bori post … I can’t believe that I actually watched you getting a haircut … sounds so lame.

  31. Hey John, you are getting old yeah! Loads of white hair there. So how much do they charge in the USA for having those kind of hair cuts?

    I know you get free but how much do they charge usually? 😈 😈

  32. Sha says:

    I don’t get the people complaining about this. Don’t like it? Don’t read it.

    And someone posted a blog about how could he possibly be making all that money when he makes these kind of posts. Seems like someone never truly checked out the rest of the site. If this was ALL John was posting about, then I’d see why people would complain, but he DOES post about how to make money, so stop your crying.

  33. Wade says:

    That is awesome stats for just 4 months. Most bored white people just watch nascar. I myself haven’t found myself to be that bored. You must be really bored to watch JC get a haircut, go make some money!
