Vsauce Explains the Science Behind Why We Get Bored [Video]

Who knew a video about boredom could be so interesting? Oh, right, Vsauce knew it.

Stuck a little late at work? Maybe you’re bored. Why? Because work can be boring — obviously — but what is boredom? Vsauce explores the science behind the concept of boredom and why and how we experience it in this surprisingly interesting video. (It’s surprising because it’s about boredom, not because it’s by Vsauce. Vsauce is great.)
