Shortly after I posted my previous post on #TheTriggering — my take on the celebration of edge-lord obnoxiousness taking place today on Twitter — I got into a weird argument with one Twitterer who essentially ended up suggesting that my post on the subject was bad because #TheTriggering itself was less interesting than things like “10-hour can kicking marathons” and “watching dust collect.”
This seems a rather strange way to defend #TheTriggering, but it’s a hard proposition to argue with. Having spent several hours poking through that ridiculous hashtag, I can confirm that it is in fact much less interesting than watching dust collecting.

1) Watching ice melting:
2) Watching butter melting:
3) Watching dust collecting:
4) Watching 14 hours of raw footage of Ted Cruz and his family:
5) Watching the same diode getting knocked over and over for ten hours:
