Yes they are. It has nothing to do with boredom, it has to do with gabe's obsession with employee health.
And why the heck would you be bored in a company where every employee can do wtf ever interests and/or amuses them? Where gabe says "oh thats all?" when someone talks about how it will cost a million to buy a new lab setup for someone.
