Visit this website and challenge yourself to do nothing

Posted by David Khoirul

Tired of reading websites or blogs? It's now your time to do nothing in the weekend while visiting a crazy website that gives you a challenge.

This simple website, called Do Nothing for Two Minutes, challenges you not to do anything in the first two minutes you go to the site. If you click the mouse or keyboard during the countdown, a pop up message will appear, saying: You failed.

Alex Tew, the creator, said as quoted by TechCrunch:

"I had been thinking how we spend every waking minute of the day with access to an unlimited supply of information, to the point of information overload. i also read somewhere that there is evidence that our brains are being re-wired by the internet, because we get a little dopamine kick every time we check our e-mail or Twitter or Facebook and there ’s a new update. So we’re all developing a bit of ADD. which is probably not great in terms of being productive.

Alex Tew is the guy behind Million Dollar Homepage, a site that in 2005 successfully convinced visitors to buy pixels on a million-pixel graphic for $ 1 apiece.
