What’s the most bored you’ve ever been? I can remember being a kid and being bored and thinking “I’m going to count to a million!” I am almost certain I never got past 100. Not because I don’t know what comes next – I’m fairly certain it’s 101 – but because I’ve never been bored enough to endure hours of self inflicted monotony.
But this young soul is not me. This young man, who goes by the internet nom-de-plume of “Mr. Beast,” sat for 40 straight hours and counted to 100,000. Why? He said he was bored and determined. If you’re so inclined, here’s the 24 hour, compressed version of his feat. Enjoy.
