Two-thirds of British women 'completely bored with their lives'

I don't even know what this means.

I saw this on the Daily Mail frontpage and, intrigued, I read the article. What a load of rubbish.
First, it is from a survey of 3000 women in England. Is that the BEST you can do, DM? Presumably the questioners sat in one location........


1. Routine (yeah it's a real grind, that)

2. Lack of social life (would YOU want to hang out with these women?)

3. Job

4. Lack of holidays (what!?)

5. Housework

6. Appearance

7. Depressing news (really? so now you're depressed AND bored. "Hey Suzie, you're boring and depressed. Let's go out!")

8. Eating the same things all the time (WHAT!!!???? Who is in charge of your mouth!?)

9. The house

10. Responsibilities (again.... it sucks to be a grown-up)


1. Go to an airport and get the next available flight to anywhere (do it!)

2. Emigrate (go!)

3. Tell people what they really think (you just did. how's that working out?)

4. Hand in their notice without another job to go to (and head back to the house you hate and all those chores!)

5. Have a dramatic hair cut (cut it!)

6. Put the house up for sale and buy a new one (not without a job! shoulda thought that one thru a little farther)

7. Try something new in the bedroom (with the new dramatic haircut?)

8. Go back to school (good idea!)

9. Book in for a boob job (Before or after the dramatic haircut?)

10. Sing in public (AFTER. Definitely after the boob job and haircut)

But 34 per cent of women don't have the confidence to make the necessary changes to their life to make them happy, while 29 per cent claim not to have the time.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see the actual survey. I believe the questions were written in a manner slanted to coax these results. Ridiculous.

I don't know why I just wasted 8 minutes on this. But one thing is for certain. I wasn't bored at all. I found it entertaining.

I wish the geniuses at Aardman would do an animation of this. Ok, you've sat through this drivel: now here is your reward and believe me, it's a better spent 8 minutes of YOUR life.
