re: "Oh dear! I am about to lose two hours of my life to my boring controller. any tips guys?"
Learn to meditate with your eyes open. I did it once with my eyes closed, and they nailed me afterward for falling asleep - until I repeated the talk back to them. Then I tiptoed out, 'cause I didn't want to wake them.
At least the guy asleep in the second frame got something useful out of the hour. Perhaps, in future, those giving useless presentations should concentrate on lulling the audience asleep as soon as possible.
