A more entertaining way to watch water boil

Egg Watchers is a great concept. You just tell the system what size of egg you're boiling, whether or not the egg is refrigerator-cold, and how well-done you want it. Then, you're set up with a YouTube video that will end at approximately the same time your egg is done.

No more boring waiting around! For an 8 min. 30 sec. extra-large hard egg, I was treated to the delightful educational mockumentary above.

My only complaint: I'd love to see this concept expanded to a full-on YouTube-based cooking timer. I've got 15 minutes for this pasta to boil, how will the Internet entertain me?
