Put that Joint Down and Log On Man

I knew it:

Workers distracted by phone calls, e-mails and text messages suffer a greater loss of IQ than a person smoking marijuana, a British study shows.

The constant interruptions reduce productivity and leave people feeling tired and lethargic, according to a survey carried out by TNS Research and commissioned by Hewlett Packard.

What fun would work (or working on a thesis) be without e-mails? That's the only thing that keeps me at the computer! I swear I get some work done in between. Maybe I should have my IQ tested...or maybe I don't want to know!

Shouldn't that be the other way around...log off and light up?
