My new favorite time-wasting spot on the internet is r/fastworkers, a subreddit dedicated to GIFs and videos of talented workers being insanely fast and accurate at their jobs. There is something hypnotic about watching people who are so experienced at doing a repetitive manual task that the motions have become automatic, while knowing that it took them years of practice to develop that kind of speed and consistency.
