Does your life feel about as exciting as watching grass grow? Don't underestimate that! Alek Komarnitsky, an Air Force vet and former systems administrator whose 1992 MBA thesis was titled "The Internet: The Information Superhighway of the 21st Century," has turned the lawn of his suburban Denver home into an international superstar via watching-grass-grow.com. Komarnitsky first installed his webcam during the very dry summer of 2002 to monitor his grass while he was on vacation. He soon began leaving it up for Halloween and Christmas, and by 2005 it had become a permanent fixture at his home; he started his grass blog the next year. Today, people avidly track (and comment on) the action in Komarnitsky's front yard — not just the growth of the grass itself ("1/25th of an inch/hour," the website advises, "that would be hard to see in the webcam"), but also visits from the mailman, passing cars, shoveling missions and special holiday displays. Sometimes the action is so intense that Mr. Grass, as he's known, adds other videos, including "December 14, 2016 — my son learning to parallel park." Bonus: The theme to Rocky plays throughout (but you can also switch to bluegrass).
