At Least It Beats Watching Paint Dry

One of the great things about the rise of the Information Age is that it has led to an explosion in the number of entertainment outlets available. When I was my son’s age, there were three channels on television, and that was about it.

The down side to the rise of the Information Age is that it has led to an explosion in the number of entertainment outlets available. For instance, if you have a hankering for watching a hunk of cheese age before your eyes in real-time, you can go to http://cheddarvision.tv/ and observe the Warholian superstar cheese in all its festering glory. If, for some twisted reason, you wish to read the musings of some pompous doofus in a blog with a silly name that ironically references Shakespeare, yet contains no great literature itself, you need only steer your browser to https://ianheath653.wordpress.com/. The examples go on and on.

Watching paint dry is a singular experience. As the paint changes from wet to dry, it gradually thickens and takes on a darker hue. It becomes glossier as the wet paint smell begins to dissipate. Watching paint dry, however, is for mere dilettantes. For the truly dedicated, nothing beats waiting for the paint to peel.
