how long would it take to watch every session of conference in church history?


Recommended Posts

So the other day during General Conference, when they were doing the statistical report, I thought of a statistic, How many hours of conference have there been? The answer is over 5 months worth, how many of you would watch all of this?

At this link is the mathamatics behind this number, and some cool facts about General Conference: 5 months of conference

That is of course, if you're assuming General Conferences in the past followed the same format that they do today, which they didn't. It was not at all uncommon for speakers (especially before time constraints placed by the high cost of satellite broadcasts) to speak for several hours each, with General Conferences lasting several days rather than two. Given this, I would suggest that you have an extremely conservative estimate, with the liberal end being upwards of a year or more.

Well, I suppose if I didn't have and couldn't get a job, had no family, was able to watch at home or online, and essentially had no other life, then yes, it could be appealing... from a certain point of view.

But the very talks and messages I would hear would tell me to get off my butt and use some moderation and do something constructive...

Hey Elder,

Out of curiosity, are you still on your mission? I'm sure you can see where I'm going...

PacMan

He introduced himself awhile back and explained that (part of at least) his mission assignment was to get online and talk to people. I am curious if he was given any specific instructions or just pointed to a computer and told 'go for it'.

add-on: okay, now I've reread his 'intro' post, I am not so sure. He never came out and specifically said it was an assignment, just that he was a "blogging missionary".

I am curious as to if he was instructed to do what he is doing or decided on his own to do it now.

He went into more detail on lds.net, and it apparently is an official calling.

I'm thinking he probably mentioned it somewhere here or someone else told me about lds.net because I don't think I would jump to the conclusion of "official" just from 'blogging missionary' seeing how I've had a son who was that age not that long ago, :ph34r:
