Dear Visitor:

Congratulations on finding your way to this dusty corner of the internet. The International Institute of Not Doing Much has a deep commitment to very little.

What kind of nonsense is this, you ask? It’s slow nonsense. The short answer is irony. Our objective is to have no objective other than to amuse you. Members are expected to take it easy and slowly ponder this and that, preferably on a sofa or in the bathtub.

All of us at the Institue avoid unnecessary effort, especially that four-letter word w-o-r-k. Despite our superb manners, sometimes we have to be blunt to get the message across. So, we apologize for using the w-word as it offends our more sensitive members. One little-known fact is that just by reading this page already you’ve become 12 percent more civilized, better-looking, and cultivated.

As you can imagine, our sophisticated organization is only open to a select few. You, naturally, are welcome to join the International Institute of Not Doing Much, and so are your friends, and their friends, and friends of their friends. But for anyone else, the Institute is restricted. We have to keep up our rigorous standards.

If you’re interested in subscribing, please read our extremely official member guidelines for more. Alternatively, why not turn to our slowly evolving stories page? Please look around and enjoy your visit.

Yours in slowness,


Office of the Secretary
