Confirmed: your last remaining reason to lift a finger in life has just been removed -- and in dazzling fashion, might we add. Instructables user randofo has created a timed trigger mechanism that affixes to that giant remote you purchased for your grandfather last Christmas, and every minute, on the minute, it mashes down in order to change the channel. Or slowly increase the volume until the neighbors complain. Or continually input the number "1," which your television vehemently refuses to recognize. We'd blame the creator, but given that he took the time to detail his methodology in the source link and whip up a few demonstration vids after the break, it's hard to paint "sloth" across his chest with a straight face.
