This is particularly true for websites like Tumblr (and, I used to think, Facebook).
Right now, for instance. I’m supposed to be writing my psych lab report (hence finding an image that speaks such truth to begin with—a Google search for Skinner Box leads to a Google image search for Skinner Box, which leads to finding above image and being simultaneously amused and a little disturbed). But, I repeatedly see my Tumblr tab changing, that magical red bubble appearing, letting me know that somewhere out there, someone has posted something new for my dash. And whenever I see this little red bubble, I IMMEDIATELY return to Tumblr, in the expectation of clicking to refresh the page and being rewarded with pretty pictures or gifs or fascinating and frequently hilarious text posts.
I am disappointed that I have been taught such a bad behavior so very easily.
