Threading the RCA Projector



The latest entry in our boredom contest. This guy's voice is particularly deadly--especially when he repeats the same passage!

However, I now want to say "sprung idler" and "snubber roller" over and over, so the film must have worked!

The fact that this skill is extinct does add a certain piquancy to the boredom, though.

Do Nothing for 2 Minutes

Can you do it? I couldn't. But why would you do it?

Federal Employee of the Year:  2011

2011 Federal Employee of the Year from Partnership for Public Service on Vimeo.



It takes a huge talent for boredom to make one of the worst disasters of the past decade seem vapid. "The pressure was somewhere between high and low." Duh....

If only this fellow had been in charge of TIMBER BRIDGE INSPECTION, life would have been perfect.

Granular Sugar Pneumatic Conveying Test



Seven minutes of monotone narrator and watching sugar flow through a semi-opaque tube. Have we surpassed TIMBER BRIDGE INSPECTION yet?

Chicken Plucker



A new height in boredom--until the actual killing begins.

Best Nap Ever!!

This kid is having too much fun during his nap -- I wish I had thought of that when I was in a crib.



Chances this video follows the kid the rest of his life? High School? Wedding?

Boredom Through Ham-carving







If these hams weren't so delicious looking, I'd rank these videos even higher on the boredom scale we have explored here before. Philip Jones is the new maestro of the somnolence-inducing monologue.

And I thought the whole point of a spiral-cut ham was, "no carving involved"...?

Longfellow’s Wayside Inn



Please rate this video for its boredom content, always using "Wooden Bridge Inspection" as your gold standard.

Add some extra points for the irritating traffic and nature noises in the background, and the wandering eyes of the narrators.

Grazing Management Basics



More boring than "Wooden Bridge Inspection"? You be the judge!
