This came my way today via Facebook:

How would you say “That's boring” in your field of expertise?

(To see the range of ways this is said in my field, just have a look at the recent reviews of Reza Aslan's book Zealot…)


Finishing my Mythicism Article Series
King Solomon and Peer Pressure
Daniel Gullotta on the Obscure but Historical Jesus
Akhenaten's Boardroom Suggestion
  • Daniel Manastireanu

    Minister: That’s interesting…

  • Ignorantia Nescia

    None of these is something I have expertise in, thankfully, but:

    Homeopath: That’s been tested.
    Mythicist: That’s attested.
    Acharya S: That’s sane.
    Freudian: That has nothing to do with gonads.

  • VorJack

    I’m an archivist. Boring is the default state, so we have no phrase for it.

  • Preston Garrison

    The philosopher would say, “That’s meaningless.”
