Odds are you’ve come dangerously close to frying your brain by rewatching the entirety of Seinfeld every month or so—I know I have. But if you think a show about everyday human banalities is the limit of tedium as entertainment, well, you ain’t seen “nothing” yet.

Here, courtesy of Imgur user matttheman11, is a series of easy-to-follow instructions for turning an old cathode ray TV set (fairly cheap on Craigslist) into an aquarium that resembles the most iconic apartment of the 1990s. Sorry, Friends, your place lacked … character.

We’re sad to report that searching Google for images of “fish that look like Kramer” yields negligible results, but evolution should get us there soon.
