    I guess... but what does it mean?

    There shouldn't be a space before the colon.

    A "caution" should be used if there is a risk of injury or damage. No one will be damaged by being bored. I would not use it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
