The Most Un-Interesting Man in the World

Updated on July 13, 2014

He is a Computer Geek. Why is he so Uninteresting on "Race Your Mouse Around the Icons" Day, August 28, 2013?

I've raced my mouse around the icons before and didn't know it was a sport, let alone a celebrated one.

Now that I know all about it, I intend to take full advantage of the opportunities to keep my mind from wandering, especially during the loading of a very slow website.

This site is all about "Race Your Mouse Around the Icons Day" and to celebrate, I have obtained information from the "World's Most UnInteresting Man." He has provided me with little tidbits of his life and his prior celebrations of this computer-related holiday.

Since he is a little bit of a computer-nerd, like I am, he tends to have some facts and habits that are a little on the far side of the sliding scale of "Uninteresting."

Let's join him in his exploits and during the time you are reading this, if you get bored, please feel free to race your mouse around the icons. I have heard it is as refreshing as a cup of coffee, and you don't have to worry about spilling it on your keyboard.

The History of "Race your Mouse Around the Icons Day"

This day originated from boredom and was created to make the user feel peppy by racing his/her mouse around the icons on the screen.

It was invented by someone unknown, who was waiting for a program to load, couldn't leave the screen and needed something to do.

It is now an official pastime with a an annual celebration on August 28.

On August 28, quit staring vacantly at your screen and race your mouse around it, you will be glad you did.
