    Well, he’s got a point. I’d probably get a lot more done at work if it weren’t for that pesky Internet (that, and my boss interrupting me to rant for 20 minutes about something that she’s just read on the Internet that she doesn’t like!).

    Entertainment? It’s those pop-up ads that get in the way of my work.

    Yeah, I know how hard it is to stay focussed on work when I’ve got all these comments to read on GoComics…..

    And Six … me too!

    Dunno about across the pond.but over here, they’re trying more and more to limit data use…They try to bribe you into accepting fewer hours of internet usage by offering unlimited talk and text….Excuse me? Do they think I have a smartphone for calling people?

    Research never ends. That’s why scientists need endless government grants and why some of us never get our actual work done! So let’s blame it all on the Internet, ’cause that makes us feel better about ourselves….

    You have to wonder just what was keeping Rat’s interest for three whole days. I’ve never seen any porn that good.

    There’s a text-only browser called Lynx, which is really helpful if you just want to get information without having to download a bunch of distracting graphics.

    The internet, like the printing press, is an incomparable window to knowledge, one of revolutionary impact on the elevation of man. While the need to be selective is important, it is incredible to me that someone, apparently proud of their ignorance, would boast that they never use it (as did an earlier poster).

    Here’s a sort of strange irony, I’m reading this comic when I should be writing, so a comic about how the internet can keep you from working is keeping me from working.
