I only voted this up cause you used my favorite movie as an example.
Best movie ever...toothless is adorable :)
But.. being human back then didn't mean people had dragons to train..? So how is that less boring?
I think what you mean is being a human being in this reality is boring.
I don't know... when I watch movies like The Human Centipede or Teeth I'm kinda glad I have a boring life.
