Full Bore

Ever wonder what a bore is? You know one when you hear one, but how do you define one? Roger Ebert provides a succinct definition in this quote he uses in an essay on 'All the Lonely People' (i.e. internet junkies):
But there are times when the net reminds me of the definition of a bore by Meyer the hairy economist, best friend of Travis McGee: "You know what a bore is, Travis. Someone who deprives you of solitude without providing you with companionship."

It's something of an occupational hazard around my workplace.

I'd write more, but I am off to bore someone.
