Hah — that’s funny. I always count the number of stairs in case I ever need to take that same staircase in the dark. (And yes, it’s happened.)

I half wonder if comparing multi-tasking to smoking weed is effective for anything other than an interesting conversation.

I wonder that because you can SEE when someone is stoned.There’s a visual effect. No so with multi-tasking until it’s gone too far and then we just look “tired.”

It’s kind of like mental illness vs physical illness. No one would ask a person with a broken leg if they’ve just “tried” not to have a broken leg. But they say that to people with depression all the time.

Interesting read (as usual) — thanks! :)
