So new study from Kansas State -- clams.
Finds that people who use the Internet at work spend most of their time doing things on related to their job that phenomenon known as cyber -- thing.
Accounts for 80% of time spent by employees surfing the web.
But I say forget the impact on work how does it affect your life the danger of cyber -- thing is the word itself.
When a reporter taxes cyber to a word it's because they're out of ideas see Dana's new app cyber Jasper.
But more important the danger of surfing -- at the time wasting.
It's the crippling fear of action that it encourages in your life the laptop simply makes it that much easier to avoid doing things.
As you watch others do things all around the world.
Achievement has been replaced by observation.
And that makes it harder to move.
We -- creating a nation of gawkers Howard you cannot speak to real people but prefer to talk trash or threatened violence.
The of the web Americans now spending all its time in the high school bathroom and writing on the wall also -- and stupidity signifying -- Perhaps that's a good thing it keeps them out of the bars and a week for me.
But just remember no one on their -- will ever remember that great article they found on the ten best videos.

The generic cyber I think the problem is it's not it's not that it's work it's that I.
Think that it creates.
Resistance to get up and do work it's like you it makes it harder.
So my understanding this study that we are spending 80% time doing things unrelated to what we're supposed to be doing when -- on the web so if you're using when you're when you're using a computer 80% of the -- -- the computer is doing other things that are related I want to call BS on this.
On this -- I hit a bad numbers seems very I think what is there ever a time.
Somehow and she doesn't cyber -- Yeah off she does into the stores these shots and we -- -- on the computer scene gathering restart you know attending are aliens though I'm not listening to become a big -- that the number.
Coming porn web sites other Blake literally ten were doing illegal Internet being robbed and -- -- -- maybe not you encompass all that down maybe the number I think you're correct and we found that in even and government agencies that that's a big problem.
