look up any word, like bae:
1. Boredom to the extent of blacking out.
2. Being in a place or state of mind where nothing happens for a very long time.
Being in that room for hours-on-end, was a dead wait.

The time one wastes waiting for an event to occur. Derived from the term dead weight and wait.
The three minute dead wait caused many down votes to the YouTube video.
