Department of Counterintuition: Screwing Around At Work Leads To Work

April 3, 2009

Leave it to the Aussies to scientifically rationalize crippling social handicaps. According to the University of Melbourne (strike hard, fightin’ Boars!), spending 20% of your time surfing the internet on non-related work activities increases your total productivity over more diligent worker bees by 9%.

This confirms two of my suspicions: 1. worklife before the Internet consisted mostly of brain dead drooling, or at best staring at patterns in patternless, grey cubicles, and 2. there exists a semi-reputable university that will fund my proposed research about the positive effects of extended magazine/erotic story bathroom reading breaks on price-to-equity ratios.

And yes, I posted this at work.
