Multitasking

Talking about cool websites, I found this one yesterday. This is a print that they sell. The caption that goes along with it reads:
"Recent neuroscience studies have found that multitasking is a hindrance to completing tasks. In the media-rich landscape of the Internet era, the temptation to multitask has been found to have a negative effect on human happiness. With one notable exception: playing the cello whilst surfing. This appears to have a sublime calming effect on test subjects, enabling extended periods of focus and sustained clarity."

Haha - a good twist. Thanks, Bryan.

Haha. This reminds me of all those really tactful posters we saw at OCHS. "Hey dummy! Don't text in class! PAY ATTENTION when people talk to you!" Classic. Thanks, high school students.
