Man starts podcast to follow passion of wasting everyone's time

A MAN has started a podcast to focus on his passion for wasting other people’s time.

Nathan Muir’s podcast will include topics such as medieval history, Indonesian food and mixed martial arts, but will be ‘pretty flexible’ as long as it is ‘essentially pointless’.

Muir revealed the podcast will be ‘mostly chilled out conversations, with a splash of serious talk’, adding: “But I really just want people to underestimate the value of their time.”

Muir, who describes himself as ‘an artist and a humanist first and foremost’, said: “It’s also going to be really good if you’re trying to multitask and keep rewinding it because you weren’t paying attention.”

The podcast already has an average of seven listeners per week and Muir is planning to generate revenue by getting paid to stop doing it.

Dad certain kids will treasure all 500,000 photos he took of their childhood

A MAN is sure his kids will enjoy the half-million photos he took of their childhood despite it taking years to view them all.

Martin Bishop believes the pictures will be a source of joy, even though most of them depict tedious things, are badly framed and generally a waste of data.

Bishop said: “Every moment has been captured, from them watching TV to eating fish fingers. The kids won’t able to stop looking at these. All 501,228 of them.”

However daughter Lucy Bishop, 14, said: “These days we can’t do anything without taking a photo. Yesterday dad took a picture of me standing by the bin for some reason.

“Half a million doesn’t even include mum’s photos or the videos. The way it’s going I’ll be spending all my precious 20s looking at embarrassing pictures of teenage me covered in zits.

“It might be different if Dad was a decent photographer but he’s not. I’ll still be looking at pictures of the dog with its head missing when I’m 50.”

Martin Bishop added: “At the current rate of photo-taking the kids could have tens of millions of photos to treasure, if they’re not dead from old age.”
