London has an annual conference for things that are really boring. The Boring Conference celebrates subjects that are considered mundane, ordinary, trivial, or pointless, but when examined more closely can be deeply fascinating. In the past, speakers have discussed sneezing, toast, vending machine sounds, the features of the Yamaha PSR-175 Portatune keyboard, and the Comic Sans font.
I feel like my dissertation on canned food could be a pretty good paper for the Boring Conference.
I think some of my friends have been to this conference. Hmm
