Maybe you already knew this, but the Internet can be a tremendous waste of time …
I personally know for a fact that when you click on a link, you are creating an unimaginable number of possible rabbit holes, down which you can merrily go, encountering distractions beyond measure … all just a click away.
A few seconds to check out an interesting (or appalling) link become minutes spent poring over every detail of something you may not have even known existed before you clicked that link. Then there are all the “related” links offered for your further pleasure.
The Internet is a procrastinator’s dream … you have the illusion of being very busy, while accomplishing absolutely nothing of lasting value, or so it seems.
