Get A Life, Long, Boring YouTubers!

Not long ago, YouTube changed their rules, eliminating a requirement that videos uploaded to the site last ten minutes or less.

So now, you can watch entire shows on YouTube, which is mostly a good thing. Except when you run into somebody with too much time on their hands.
Breaking news: Now you can watch ten consecutive hours of
this cat playing the keyboards!

Among the many hours long features you can now watch on YouTube are ten full hours of Darth Vader breathing, 24 hours of ambient engine noise from the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek, the infamous Keyboard Cat in a seemingly endless loop lasting ten hours, (the original 55-second long Keyboard Cat segment was torturous enough) and ten hours of the Pink Panther Theme.

Is this a new form of torture sanctioned by the Department of Homeland Security? Force a suspect in a cell and subject him to ten, twenty hours of Darth Vader or Keyboard Cat, and they spill the beans, thereby theoretically preventing a terrorist attack?

Has anyone watched these boring videos in their entirety?  And who are the people who uploaded this? The National Association of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Survivors?

Am I being too cynical? After all, everything on line is precious, smart, enlightening and entertaining, right.  (Snark!)
