I used to be bored all the time in my younger days, but I don't think I've been bored since 1998. Now I'm always way too tired to be bored.

Boredom happens quite frequently to me. Active and passive responses in no particular order:

i. draw

ii. write

iii. daydream

iv. read 

v. walk

vi. watch something

vii. argue/seek confrontation [latter is rare, now, and largely predicated upon being in a pissy mood as well]

I try to think up new puns. 

You're welcome.

The only time I get bored is if I'm stuck somewhere and can't leave, e.g. in a queue or waiting for a train.

If you're free to do whatever you want then how could you possibly be bored?

If you're in a queue or waiting on a train, then you have time to think up new puns.

How could you possibly be bored in such situations?

When I'm bored, I look for something to fill the hole.

I think the waiting for a train one is ripe for development. Yes, you can read or go online (if you can get any signal, which you can't sometimes). But often you just feel too frustrated to read. So yeah, maybe I should be working on my meditation skills or something.
