The Ultimate Distraction

Since I sat down a half hour ago to start writing today's entry I've checked Twitter, email, and read Amy and James' most recent blog entries. And if it wasn't for the fact that I need to leave for work in another half an hour, I'd find something else to distract me. The internet is the ultimate distraction. With instant communication and the entirety of human knowledge at your fingertips, not to mention YouTube videos of people hurting themselves in a nearly infinite number of humorous ways, you can manage to never get work done if you choose.

But that's not positive, Jason? Western civilization would crumble if everyone chose to fritter their precious time away watching videos of Coke / Mentos eruptions and Twittering about how freakin' cool it is, writing useless blog entries with long run-on sentences to a very limited (but awesome) group of people instead of getting real work done.

True. But Coke / Mentos eruptions are freakin' cool. Let China do all the work.
