This seemingly intolerance for boredom grows with every generation due to the increasing advances in technology. As entertainment becomes more mobile and accessible, the impulse to reach for it when encountering a lull in life is more pressing. People have always sought to fight boredom in any capacity and the rich have always flaunted their wealth to due so, however the difference between now and then is - again - how far modern technology allows its users to utilize it against boredom.

People haven't changed, the world has. So it's only now how apparent the importance of boredom is.
