how long would it take yo to get tired of a Groundhog Day Loop?:

I am a very routine oriented person. I am also not very social. so I think that until I manage to catch up on my reading and TV I probably won't mind the loop that much ( assuming of course that I would be stuck in a day where I have plenty of time to do those stuff).

I would get bored out of my mind after I ran out of nice people to socialize with.
I would get bored of the internet because 4chan and forums would only update themself once for me(1 long update repeating itself each day).
I guess I would last about 1 week, unless I am stuck in an entire week(meaning I would have enough time to randomly screw around anyhow).
A guy called dvorak is tired. Tired of humanity not wanting to change to improve itself. Quite the sad tale.
Depends on what the day's like.

If it would be more than a day, for example two weeks, I could continue it forever.

watching down on us
As long as I found myself new things to read and watch (and possibly play, but seeing as I can't save games and would have to start over each day that might not be possible for longer games, that and I would have to take time out of my day to acquire the games in the first place), I think I could keep myself entertained until the loop was over.

I would learn how to do things, as well as continue with my random Germanic/Middle Ages/Cretaceous period studies. Perhaps when I get out of the loop I would be a master of irish step-dancing and kung fu!

Banned entirely for telling FE that he was being rude and not contributing to the discussion. I shall watch down from the goon heavens.

I probably wouldn't even notice that I'm in one for about three or four weeks
There needs to be a word for those brief moments of clarity where you realize just how profoundly weird your life is.

As long as it was a decent day then I would be fine. The benefits of the reset button outweigh any potential boredom aspects.
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous- Almost, at times, the fool.

I would probably start trying to figure out wtf is going on and how to get out long before I actually got bored.

After about 700 years 6 months I'd start trying new things to spice it up even more than I otherwise could spice up a "Groundhog Day" Loop scenario. (Assuming it was a scenario greater than 24 hours between loops.) I'd just keep getting more and more creative and unpredictable each loop.

What's the range? What circumstances? What is on TV? Do I have access to a rental place? How much money do I have?

Oh My
I do not think I would react to this very well at all. Not as in "I am bored" bad, but more "I am distressed and need to find a way to stop this" bad. Few things sound more horrifying to me than having to relive the same thing over and over again.

[up][up]the range is one day. assuming you have the internet then everything is on TV. as for money... just bet on a horse or something. there are always ways to make quick cash when you know the immediate future.

My question was more about the geographic range I have, rather than the time. Sorry for being unclear, but really, a day isn't very specific. I'll assume I wake up at the same time, but what about sleeping? Does it automatically happen or what? Do I have a full 24 hours, or some shorter period?

And gambling, well, here's the thing, not everybody lives in a gambling community, or one where you can get paid on the same day.

 
Would I age?

If not I could stay in the loop forever.

Oh My
...only a day?

This sounds like Hell...

Astronomically Awesome
Well, I'd have to weight the fun of having a perpetual reset button (Do whatever I want without consequences) and the terrible agony of stagnation and lack of progress (What I want to do something that takes more than a day?).

It would be really awesome to just fool around, acquire A LOT of knowledge, then bail out and be fantastic. And then get FBI agents at my door asking me how I now so much about the secrets of all the world's governments.

A "Groundhog Day" Loop with the option to leave it at will would be the most awesome thing ever.

Also, I doubt you could discover much about the government in under a day. But it would be great for studying stuff.

No, with the option to come back.

I might get terrified, but it would take ages for me to get bored. It's an enormous world out there, and with enough trial and error you can figure out how to do absolutely anything.
Except for 4/1/2011. That day lingers in my memory like...metaphor here...I should go.
Isn't it obvious what you could do, Just become God.

etc.

It needs a week to have any potential. Or perhaps 3 days.
Another question: Do I always respawn at the same spot?

If the world gets reset, then logically, you always respawn in the same spot.

From a scientific perspective, there is a bit if issue with the brain-mind duality implied by retaining memories though.

Yep. Eventually, presumably, the memory build-up would be a serious problem.

Stop bringing your reality into this fantasy!

 
complete noob
I already feel this way about my actual life. An actual groundhog;s day loop would just be me jumping out of buildings ad infinitum
