Boredom originated before the days of christ. In Fact, there was a 13th disiple named boredom. His rightings were later taken out of the bible because of Jesus' extreme distrust for this man. While disiples such as Chuck Norris gave Jesus the gift of beard, Boredom gave Jesus the gift of... well, Boredom. As a side affect of Jesus' miricles, Boredom spread through the world. In greek mythology, Boredom came from Pandora's Box.
Boredom became popular in early 1900 America when ball-in-a-cup got old and the yoyo was invented. There are many ways to get rid of boredom temperarily but it will definitly return at some point. One way is to look up definitions on this site which is probably why you found this. Others include playing catch, drinking, smokeing, ding dong ditching homes, playing sports, and if worst comes to worst, watching the O'Rielly Facter.
In many Boredom related deaths, people were reduced to acts of aggression such as cutting themselves (see emo) and skate bording (other wise known as punk behavior). These victims of boredom probably were reduced to this level when there PS2 or Xbox 360 was sent in for repairs and all the O'Rielly Facters on Youtube were repeats.
Let me warn you again, if you experience even the slightest hint of boredom, go online and IM a friend for funny conversations in the past, pictures they have taken, or just a good story (possibly one that goes along with the picture).

What I am currently suffering from.
Boredom is boring (so is this definition.)
