These sentences are ruining my ability to be bored with a peaceful mind.

Why do the sentences learned have to be weird and things that no one would ever say? this doesn't seem like the best way to learn or helpful

I've heard people say things like this. They prefer a boring era over one filled with war and rapid changes to culture and lifestyle.

That makes sense, although it's sad that people would confuse boredom with peace.

Is membosankan positive? To me, boring is rather negative.

Duolingo, please: make sentences, that have some idea! These centences really, really drive me crazy! Maybe I just quit Duolingo, there are many language applications available.

Stop complaining, haven't you heard the Chinese saying "interesting, exciting times" which means "times f If trouble" ? This sentence alludes to it. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_you_live_in_interesting_times

This sentence should be deleted from the course. Its a ridicilous sentence.

What is this? Does it make any sense cause i'm the more i advance the more it is boring


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Koki190732

What a weird and sad sentence!

Perhaps, but it could also be a blessing, when compared with the Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times." People tend to think of war (or other kinds of conflict) as interesting, whereas long periods of peace are viewed as boring within a nation's history.
