In the last couple of days I've read articles relating to the addictive qualities of on-line gaming and viewing series on Netflix. Both have been followed by significant numbers of comments happily and often angrily debating the very notion of addiction as applied to these activities, with many suggesting further usefully useless ways of eating up time. Indeed, the very act of reading the repetitively pointless commentary had about it something of an ironically addictive quality. I'll really have to stop doing this.
