Ennui. Lethargy. Tedium. However you label it, it’s all boredom.
Throughout July, the U.S. celebrates National Anti-boredom Month, and a chance to cure the call of “There’s nothing to do!” forever. We’re all for putting a bit of extra excitement into your life, and we can offer several ideas to banish boredom for people of all ages.
The Seated Backyard Zipline Kit allows riders to swoop up to 90 feet through the air while remaining close to the ground. The system simply wraps around two trees at an incline and riders zip from one end to the other, similar to ziplines found at luxury ski resorts and adventure camps. It’s a unique gift for kids or grandkids, that helps make playing outdoors better than any video game.
You and a friend can tool around town on The Only Electric Bicycle Built for Two. The only one of its kind, this tandem electric bicycle assists riders up to 20 mph in relaxed comfort, up hills or across broad flats. Its step-through design provides easy mounting and dismounting for both riders.
For boredom that can only be cured with speed, The World’s Fastest Amphibious Car blasts over water at 44 mph and reaches 80 mph on the road. Powered by a 300-hp Honda engine, it operates like a regular vehicle on land with a four-speed manual transmission. When it’s time to enter the water, the wheels rise above the bottom of the hull and the engine’s power is redirected to a Panther pump jet.
Time with friends is a sure cure for boredom, along with a bit of liquid social lubrication. The Aquatic Bar seats four around an integrated cooler, facilitating the unique gift of dazzling conversation. Four inflatable chairs let sitters’ legs dangle in the cooling water.
