People used to get bored to death. But these days, it seems more like death to boredom.
I don't think I've heard anyone over the age of 18 say “I'm bored” in at least a decade. I don't think I've uttered the words myself for probably 20 years.
I suppose the flipside of modern over-stimulation is that at least people are at lower risk of boredom-related problems!
