Boring is big mistake in a lot of areas.
Boring products, boring movies, boring music, boring people — these things make no impact. We rarely seek them out because they’re mind numbing to engage and impossible to remember.
So what’s the deal with boring sentences in textbooks?
The idea is to remember this stuff, right?
But all I see is sushi this and pen that. Nothing’s special, nothing sticky, nothing remarkable.
I know, I know — “But boring is easy to understand…”
Yeah, easy to understand AND easy to forget.
