This premise would also explain the need for media such as the Daily Fail to provide content to this new dumber audience.

I'd Carnegie her Mellon.

Sorry, did I just read the summary of the study correctly?  "People interrupted during a task have more difficulty with that task."  So that makes them dumb... how?

Here's an idea: have two groups make pancakes, but one set will have a bearded man knock them in the elbow at randomized times.  BEARDED MEN MAKE YOU A BAD COOK!

Hmm, I've got something really insightful to say about this, but I need to go find an anigif to accompany it... ooh, I'll watch that video first...

Exactly. Everyone knows that the Intelligencia posts exclusively on Fark.

TeDDD: "People interrupted during a task have more difficulty with that task." So that makes them dumb... how?

I was thinking about composing a reply here. Then Windows decided it would be a great time to popup a little notification flag in the corner. It was white and blue, and by the time my eyes darted over there it had dissapeared again. Something's probably wrong and I have no idea what I wanted to say on Fark anymore.

That might explain the half naked Pope

Pic in article is clearly unrelated to Carnegie Mellon.
2013-05-20 11:07:45 AM  
Twitter and Facebook?!
Farkers here can't even manage multiple windows of Fark without posting in a wrong window!

After intensive investigation, comma, of the markings on the alien pod, comma, it has become clear, comma, to me, comma, that we are dealing, comma, with a species of awesome intellect, colon.

I just posted this headline on Facebook.

Simple solution to messages and waiting for a message and errors in what you are trying to do.

Stop caring.

When a message arrives, ignore it until you want to deal with messages then deal with a bunch.

Anyone who emails or sends a text for a time critical event is a fool and fools should not dictate my life. If the phone rings I ignore it. Anything important will warrant a second call.

When I am not busy I answer calls and check texts same as anyone else.

Fools will tell me this is wrong (usually because I have ignored their text/email for an hour or two) but they are just fools and fools should not affect how I do or see things..

Chicks love it.

I knew not to trust the "multi-tasking GOOD!!" refrain once I realized that it was usually HR bimbos saying it.

Does it explain unneeded commas, subby?
