Once I was procrastinating, and I typed 'funny' into Google search and saw it as one of the top results. I'd seen it before, so I figured 'why not?' and now I'm addicted.

One of my Facebook friends had commented on a Bored Panda post which showed up on my timeline. Took me at least a couple of years before I actually made a Bored Panda account though.

You too and you are welcome. That's the good thing about BP, its not only about passing comments and views, its also about understanding and supporting one another.

I was having a hard time after burning myself out studying the whole month, was scanning through Daily Mail. Saw bored panda sourced at the end of the article so I clicked on it. Basically, the name was attractive to me. I immediately got hooked to this. P.S. later found out that Daily Mail literally copied a whole article of off Bored Panda

I walked through the dusty, dry desert, just waiting for something to entertain me. It was a boring time. I needed entertainment. Something to read during my online school. I realized BuzzFeed was a Buzzkill, and I was walking around, searching for something. Then, like a light from above, like water in a drought, like an unseen dodgeball in an echoing gymnasium, it appeared.

I joined bored panda i think on 11/3/2020. I found it because I was looking up "Bored School memes" and "Things we learn but will never use." I came across bored panda. I thinks I've read like everything though. I have to keep on scrolling down, sometimes.

I'm a new member, I joined today. I essentially was interested in hearing about stories from people about the time that they've been grounded or when their child was, because at this time I am also grounded and it's a dumb reason why. I saw this website as the top result for "Grounded Stories" and I decided to see what it was all about, I am not disappointed.

through looking at an article about a trans woman. but I kind of wish I hadn't discovered it because so may users on bored panda are kids and people are coming on bored panda to be predatory to them. I was one of the preyed. And there is no way we can report them! I hope one of the staff sees this and deals with it.

Uh, I’m pretty sure I was whining to my BF (now hubs) about being bored, and he sent a link to this site as he knew I liked reading about quirky stuff. That was before the upvoted, community submitted content. Been years. I miss some of the old content on the site.

I lost my browsing history in the browser (Lunar Baboon Strip Comic). Then I try to enter all the keywords that might lead me to the sites I visited before. Without realizing it, I visited the bored panda site and opened other articles, even created an account and downloaded the application. Because I feel, through the Bored Panda article I can learn English indirectly.
