We'd all like to think we're thoughtful, patient, and steadfast, especially in our ability to pay attention to things. We are completely and totally wrong, and this brilliant College Humor video is proof. Just try and watch this video without pausing, skipping ahead, or looking at something else — you'll see.


Here's the kicker: Even if you managed to watch it all the way through, chances are you found it excruciating, and thus you still have a pitifully short attention span. You just have the willpower to overcome it... for less than 200 seconds. Unless you watched it without any desire to stop whatsoever, the video proved its point.

We're all doomed.
