So you’re pumping gas, bored out of your skull because it’s been more than ten seconds since you inserted the gas dispensing dealy into the gas hole thingy. What are you supposed to do with the remaining two to three minutes until your gas tank is finally full? Certainly not be alone with your thoughts. Ugh.

Plus it can be difficult to scroll Twitter on your phone while simultaneously scanning for nefarious pigeons.

Some gas stations have thoughtfully installed television screens at each pump. They’re mostly there to make you bash your head into the car door in terror when a booming voice starts reciting the definition of a fancy word or relaying the local news. But televisions alone just aren’t diverting enough, which is why I’m suggesting the following additional forms of entertainment for gas stations far and wide.

Magic Shows

Blackjack Tables

Someone Playing the Spoons

Cirque de Soleil Performers
