The piece of information we're about to share with you may be a bit... let's say, revolutionary.
It'd probably be best to do a quick scan for prying eyes, corporate superiors, or the mail guy – you don't want to be held responsible for making this viral around the office. Especially on a Monday.
Good. Now what you should know:
- You'll be working with a time limit here so you'll want to focus and evoke as much inner-impulse as possible
- You'll likely want a U.S. Dollar to Swedish Kronos converter handy. Feel free to substitute Mark Wahlberg (rumor has it he's of Swedish descent)
- You'll want ample mouse-clicking leverage along with keen eye
Introducing Speed-Sale. An overly stressful shopping site from Swedish online retailer Papercut.
The concept is simple: you have a total of four seconds to decide whether or not you 'd like to purchase a discounted item, or else you lose the deal forever. And they really do mean forever...
Think online speed dating meets e-tailing.
The last time you had to make a decision this quickly you were deciding between a Rolex and Panerai clipped to the inside of a stranger's trench coat.
And while you're contemplating whether or not the Complete Monty Python Series is worth your four seconds, you'll be serenaded by an intense countdown soundtrack. And no, it's not Rebecca Black.
Enjoy while you can... That'd be approximately two minutes worth of enjoyment.
