If that's too passively staring for ten hours, then maybe something more thrustingly staring...

He warned us about the coming thousand-year reign of darkness, and we ignored him. NOW FEEL THE PITILESS GAZE OF HIS DISAPPOINTMENT.

So what happens if Chuck Norris stares at the Gangnam Style elevator dude for 10 hours? Is that how the world will end this Friday, not with a bang but a blinker?

This is stupid.







That's not necessarily a criticism.

That's what I hate about this place, everyone has to jump in with some comment BEFORE they've read the link, watched the video, whatever... I'm waiting until December 18, 2012 1:31 PM before I pay any attention to anything any of you have to say about this....

how many of you slide that little slider up to 10 hours to see if the damn image ever changed.

If crap like this keeps coming up, we who use YouTube for more creative purposes are going to have to go back to the under-10-minute rule again. :-|

It only took me 30 seconds before he blinked.

Chuck Norris is nothing compared to THIS.

And, yeah, when did youtube start allowing 10 hour videos?

I think this is a suitable replacement for Rickroll.

Ages ago.

So now you got all kinds of hilarious extended remixes of memed out videos, from nyan cat to hobbits being taken to Isengard (still shorter than the new movies) to Hitler gangnam style.

... pretty sure he's been eye-fucking me for the last twenty-five minutes.

But you DO need to choke the life out of ObamaCare (and implement a single-payer system). Wait... isn't that what he's saying?

Chuck Norris: "I'm proud to serve as the honorary chairman of Trigger The Vote, the National Rifle Association's nonpartisan campaign to register voters who support the Second Amendment."

Fuck Chuck Norris.

Imagine living in a society where we had plenty of power and space to store 10 hours of HD video of a man staring.

Is this really the best of the web? A right wing gun nut staring for ten hours?

Go to YouTube, search "for 10 hours", watch something better.

Like this.

No, this is: moustached Swedish men throttling their sticks and pushing their equipment to the max as blonde women bicycle along in gym shorts.

Viggen: it's Swedish for hot.

10 hours? That's nothing. Previously.

I tried for five minutes. The emptiness behind those eyes is frightening.

Is there an "action" star any more boring than Norris? Even Van Damme has some glimmer of life behind those coke-wizened eyes.

The 90 minute kitchen faucet loop is magical for putting my 4-month-old to sleep, without the waste of water.

It's not ten hours, but when it comes to staring this feels obligatory - Big Train - Staring final

soundtrack's pretty cool -- I could handle ten hours of that.

So, if the real Chuck Norris stares at the recorded Chuck Norris, who wins? Does the monitor melt?

Maybe it's the meds and insomnia, but the deadpan Wikipedia synopsis of the Gangnam Style video amuses greatly. Best read in the voice of the dullest speaker you know; includes:

"At a parking lot, PSY is approached by a man (Yoo Jae-Suk) with a red Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class and a yellow suit; they have a dance duel. He then appears in an elevator underneath a man (Noh Hongchul) who is straddling him and thrusting his pelvis."
