Bored to Death . . . Literally?

Slashdot reports about a new study that links boredom to death. I was going to read it, but it's long and I don't want to risk it.

A study conducted by researchers at University College London shows that boredom can kill you. The researchers found that people who reported feeling a great deal of boredom were 37 per cent more likely to have died by the end of the study. Martin Shipley, who co-wrote the report said, "The findings on heart disease show there was sufficient evidence to say there is a link with boredom."

I don't know that this means your sermon might be lethal, but maybe we should try to spice things up . . . just a bit.
