The World's Most Boring TV



One of the better Ted Talks, and one of the funnier ones. Worth the trip over to see it.

  1. I have seen this before. With what is going on in the world, boring is good.

    1. My only complaint is, at the end, I still wanted to know what happened to the cow. =)

      I think part of the appeal is seeing real-time stuff without having the possible inconvenience of getting there. Armchair travelers, indeed.

      I loved the people who were on the boat, watching the footage, and as the narrator said, all they had to do was turn 90 deg. and see it for real.
      If it's on the telly, we watch it.
