The idea of the "Slowest Story Ever Told," is one of the most innovative but ridiculous ideas I’ve ever heard. The idea behind it is a story that reads itself to you (meaning you can’t cheat). While all that sounds nifty, the catch is that the story is hidden beneath ink layers of Opium’s Infinity issue.
The nine-word story will be revealed word by word until the story is completed. Each word is covered in a thicker ink layer than the one before it.
"The ink is designed to break down as it is exposed to ultraviolet light and if Keats’ calculations are correct this will occur at a rate of one word per century," PSFK explains.
The total reading time of the magazine cover amounts to an entire millennium (so don’t ever count on knowing what it says).
Once again, both amazingly interesting but a little crazy.
