Competitive Paint Watching
As Olympic Fever grips the UK, LocalTraders have organised a completely new competition: watching paint dry. It may not require a lot of physical skill, but it takes plenty of mental stamina to watch paint dry.
Watching paint dry has often been cited as the most boring activity in existence, so it will take lots of intense focus and zenlike concentration to keep it up longer than anyone else. As you train for the event, watching paint dry at your home or office, have someone get a snap of you showing your best form.
Click on the link above and upload your beaut photo. LocalTraders will pick the best paintwatchers and invite them to the finals in England, where they can strut their stuff in front of the media in a brutal competition for the World Champion at watching paint dry.
LocalTraders make the point that watching paint dry is a mental feat by including a couple of questions on the official entry form for the event. Entrants must tell the length of time they spent watching paint dry in order to get the snap, and must also describe their favourite paint colour -- and why it is their favourite.
The greatest challenge, though, may be getting some wet paint to watch. Let Courtney & Wise assist you with this if you're in Sydney or the Northern Beaches. We'll paint your home or office and give you a beautiful paint job to watch.
