study finds email worse than marijuana...


After 80 clinical sessions the result of a study out of King's College London University has found that office workers constantly bombarded by phone calls, emails and text messages who feel compelled to respond immediately to the distractions are suffering from a higher loss of IQ than marijuana smokers. Dr. Glenn Wilson reported the study showed a 10 point drop in IQ by the office workers which is the equivalent of the IQ drop seen in those who loose an entire nights sleep. Marijuana smokers who were studied had only a 4 point drop in their IQ.

thanks to Is It Just Me? for sharing the story. gee, maybe I could get a study funded showing how blogging is better than pot. of course I'll have to get some smokers as a control group...
