I loved the mountains when I first lived In Jasper National park. Then after 15 years I couldn’t care less. What novelty has worn out for you? Humor welcome.

Terrorism.
It just bores me.

The Washington monuments. I can’t remember the last time I saw one, either up close or from a distance, and either noticed or cared. Forty years ago, I thought they were spectacular; I’d go running nearby them and view with awe. Now, they’re just part of the urban landscape.

I never go to the beach. I went to Waikiki for the second time in two years recently.

^^^ Isn’t it always true that tourist attractions hold little-to-no appeal for local people? Everything becomes very familiar.

Somebody once told me that late-night TV shows – such as “The Tonight Show,” “The Daily Show,” and “Saturday Night Live” – have audiences packed with “those liberal New Yorkers.” But, they really don’t; visitors from elsewhere get tickets and go to the tapings. I’ve never heard any New Yorker say, “I’m going to see Jimmy Fallon tonight. What are your plans?”

The CNN breaking new logo is mostly not boring now, but they have called Wolf to many times . Pun intended .

Edit The CNN breaking news intro is still novel to me. Even though they have cried “Wolf” to many times. Pun intended. Sorry ran out of time to edit.

I used to get pretty jazzed when our car started on the first try each morning.

Then I realized that it’s a fairly new Toyota, and everybody in the world’s fairly new Toyota does the exact same thing for them.

So suddenly, for me it stopped being such a big deal..

I miss that.

P.S. Our Samsung SmartTV is still pretty exciting (I’m just sayin’....)

Because you never know when it is going to explode?

3-D.

Studio heads: Let’s produce an amazing looking film with rich colors and amazing picture quality!

Producers: How about in 3-D?

Studio: You mean the process in which we give people headaches and make the rich colors on the screen look darker?

Producers: Yes, that’s it!

Hey, @ragingloli…..our Samsung TV always says nice things about YOU…...

(I suspect the damn thing listens to us….recently we were discussing a Carnival cruise we went on 15 years ago. I get on my computer, and there are a bunch of ads for…....cruises…..)

@Love_my_doggie This is true. I grew up in Las Vegas and I have no desire to gamble. Illinois has new gaming laws that make it more accessible and I don’t care.
