I am surprised everyone is quoting anecdotes but not putting them in any context. It's like collecting data but having no theory to fit the data. And so the data is essentially meaningless.
It's like living a meaningless life, where everything is simply an anecdote with some weirder than others. It makes life a kind of freak show, a bit like TV. It's a life of one distraction after another. It's a life of ADHD. And fits perfectly into the distractions of popular culture - Cool!
