Youtube and Wikipedia are great for rabbit holes.

I don't know about Wikipedia but I have been sucked down youtube rabbit holes
Was on youtube and saw video of a fight between fans at a football game. Pretty crazy
Then youtube sees you watched that and put similar videos links on the right.
YouTube kind of saying if you like this video, will love the next one as they automatically load
After a while I look up and see I've been on youtube for an hour, lol

Years ago, I got a timer and would set it for ten minutes whenever I went to youtube. Otherwise, time just slipped away.

Uggg left work early to find water dripping from the middle of kitchen ceiling. Bathroom is right above. No water or sign of water in bathroom. Went in crawl space where pipes are and nothing is wet. Only place it can be is where pip is in the ground for toilet. Not sure what to do other than pull up floor to look. We also had some rain storms last night so I guess it is possible for water from the outside but I cant find any evidence of that either.

Owning a house is good for your kids future when you pass away. Land and property is how wealth is built. I'm Just now sure how much your stuff will be worth in 2 years (-;

I've spent countless hours on wiki doing stuff like reading about the lives of all of the Little Rascals or old timey baseball players.

I didn't look at GWAE's list (yet) but there's a whole subculture called, I think, "Urban Explorers" who go into abandoned areas, buildings, factories, etc. and take pictures. It's been a while, but I used to read about that too.

Even though I don't believe in conspiracies, aliens, paranormal, etc. I love reading about them.

In short, I've spent lots and lots of time in them rabbit holes.

I wouldn't really say it's a waste of time. You're actively engaged at least. Better than watching TV.

I agree it's not always a waste of time. There have been plenty of things that I know now from these things. Definitely better than the crap my wife watches on facebook.
