Little known fact, in China, in the middle ages, they used to torture spies and prisoners by forcing them to sit in an office for hours with nothing to do except to endlessly check the same sheet of paper, waiting for a message to appear.

Alternatively they made them watch a little caterpillar crawl slowly from one end of a stick to the other. The caterpillars were specially bred to occasionally pause and sometimes move backwards.
