I have way too many friends trying to talk to me, emails from rock stars, and porn to download to not touch anything on my computer for two straight minutes. I'm sorry, but I'm really popular, so a site trying to get me to do nothing for two minutes is going to have to wait until I die or go to sleep.
"Just relax and listen to the waves. Don't touch your mouse or keyboard," the website pleads with you as you see a ticking clock and a paradise of boring waves and a shitty sunset. Where are the tweets, the YouTube clips of cats falling off roofs, and the celebrity nip-slips? Lame.
I think I only made it one or two seconds until I got bored and made fake bids on baby clothes on eBay or went into chat-rooms and claimed to be a 17 year-old girl.
I have better things to do.
