Tired of #TheTriggering? Here are 5 much better ways to waste your time

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.

And that gave me the idea for a post. So here it is: Five extremely boring things that still manage to be more interesting than #TheTriggering.

Enjoy!

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:

Good lord, if I weren’t on my phone I’d post “cows with guns” and “the hamster dance”

ETA: Suddenly it won’t embed. WordPress is apparently telling us to stop our nostalgia kick.

Listening to Lou Reed’s Metal Machine Music album in its entirety.

You know what I really want to see trend on Twitter? #TheKittening. Cat pictures, cat gifs, cat vines, screencaps from Neko Atsume…

The twitterer actually thinks the blog as a whole is boring, cause the twitterer is an antifeminist.

Woohoo! I am so glad that I will be back on an actual computer tomorrow afternoon instead of an iPad or iPhone like the last few days! My dog will be happy that her walks will be back on familiar turf without all the asphalt and elevator rides.

@katz much obliged, having to endure the limitations of the available tech has been hellish!

Huh, I’d never seen the “cows with guns” thing before. I note they refer to the cow guru as a “he” throughout, despite the prominent udders.

@pie

That’s one of the reasons that particular song/video entertains me so much…my artistic ability is limited to “Bob the undecided bovine” which is basically a cow on the lower half and a bull wearing sunglasses on the top half.

And yes I’m pretty easily amused. ?
