Are the majority of old people bored?
No. Older persons are involved in many and diverse activities. After retirement many participate as volunteers in churches, schools or other nonprofit organizations and report themselves to be "very busy." As they age most persons are likely to continue the level of activity to which they were accustomed in middle age.
