The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For…

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

New Year’s Eve is almost upon us. Yes, the start of a new year and a chance to rekindle our hopes for all the things. So much is riding on this moment. What if this year isn’t better? What if we fail on our resolutions? The pressure mounts.

But what if it’s just another tick of the clock?

This Australian man waited 416 days to see what happens after his iPod timer passes 9999 hours 59 minutes and 59 seconds. And the result and his reaction are fascinatingly benign. We assign so much meaning to these big moments that forget they’re ever present. Any one of the seconds clicking away as you read this could’ve been or could well be a pivotal shift.

More than a year. I don’t even understand how he was able to sustain an iPod doing anything for that long, but I applaud his effort.

May we all have the stamina to devote ourselves and wait 9999 hours and 59 seconds for something to happen.
