What are 'bored stiff' and 'I don’t do one damn thing"? When the same question was directed at Munger, he told the story of the World War II Air Force captain who was bored stiff in Panama. As the general reviewed the officers, he asked the captain what he did. The frustrated captain answered, “I don’t do one damn thing.” The general asked the same of his lieutenant. The lieutenant replied, “Well, sir, I help the captain.”

'Bored stiff' just means 'very bored'. 'I don’t do one damn thing' means 'I don't do anything'. (In a frustrated tone). The lieutenant's answer is therefore quite funny...
