I'm re-reading The Fun Theory Sequence and enjoying it. But my question is not about theory:
What are some concrete, practical ways to spend $100,000 to generate a non-negligible amount of fun?
- "We're not nearly as unique as we think, at least when it comes to emotional responses to events". (Therefore it makes sense to ask this question.)
- The hypothetical person who has the money and wants the fun doesn't possess any specific skills that would make answers too unique (e.g., buy an exquisite antique violin to happily play it every day).
- This hypothetical person is predisposed to boredom (although not depressed or particularly unhappy, just easily bored). This is meant to exclude a wide range of things that some people consider fun but that are actually not fun at all. :)
One might even find it doubly fun to give a random internet forum participant $100,000.
