this happens to me a lot, generally when im looking at pictures or something on google images. for instance earlier this afternoon i was looking at some pictures of m4's on google images and decided to do a little reading about them on wikipedia, which led me to read about wars they have been used in, which led me to reading about desert storm, and on to norman schwarzkopf and etc. etc. before i knew it several hours had past and i believe the last thing i was reading about was the manhattan project. a few months ago there was a thread on here where we were voting on a superhero/villian tournament. i found myself often reading article after article about superheros and villians, some of which i had never even heard of lol.
i have always been a huge history nerd, it was by far my most favorite subject and i even started school a few years back to become a history teacher but have since been unable to finish. anyways does anyone else have this happen to them frequently? just to be clear, i dont have add or adhd or any of that attention disorder stuff, i have no problem concentrating on things its just whenever im reading about something and i have some free time i find myself opening related articles in other tabs and that leads me to opening other related articles, and before i know it i got like 20 or 30 tabs open lol, maybe im weird?
