Insomnia becomes chronic for the easily bored, because it's addictive to them. When your brain gives up it's attempts to signal you to go to bed, it starts shutting itself down. Little bits go haywire in the dim light, and you begin to feel strange. It's mania, and that's definitely not boring. You tend to do stranger things while you're in this state, your mania is your entertainment. Normally, it wouldn't be so entertaining, but there's a feedback loop involved. Your brain isn't in it's normal catatonic state, it's misfiring. It both generates the erratic behavior, and is entertained by it's results. I wouldn't normally just dump my entire MP3 collection in to a playlist and randomize, and if I did, I probably would spend most of my time rifling through it until I heard something I liked. Now, I like everything. Things on the internet I wouldn't usually find funny are hilarious, and I'm compelled to read them. Insomnia is the drug of the information age. Why else would caffiene be the "in thing" right now, especially with geeks?
