What's the most boring thing imaginable?
Watching paint dry? Watching grass grow? Waiting for the History Channel to show history?
How about a news account of a series of meetings by a group of economists?
Except this group of economists is staggering like an inebriated passenger stumbling toward an airplane propeller. The propeller is we now know as the economic crisis of 2008. The combination of innate cluelessness and lack of information combines with the ability to see things retrospectively to form a horror show of policy.
It's like watching a television drama with little kids playing with dynamite and matches. You hold your breath, knowing this won't be good.
