Distraction: Online Waste of Time

Being a big fan of game theory, moral philosophy, and the internet, I was happy to see that there's a magazine called "The Philosopher's Magazine" (which is mostly read while sitting on the philosopher's Toilet) which has a website that includes about a dozen online tests. Most are of the garden variety "rate your" this or that, but a few are interesting, such as the ones that test you for moral consistency, logical, or would choose to stay alive in a variety of extreme situations.

Warning: combining the intellectual hamster on a wheel properties of philosophy with the time wasting capacity of the internet, creates its own black hole gravity well of uselessness that prevents anything of import from be accomplished for several hours.
