Not worst than the Wikipedia trap… You just want to check one thing and you suddenly realise that hours have passed and you're 100 pages away from what you originally wanted to check…
Exactly! The WIKIPEDIA TRAP is much, much more dangerous!
Apparently neither of you have ever visited tvtropes.org... far worse than Wikipedia.
Yes Ross, I've been in the tvtropes.org trap. I agree, since it is so well-made, it's the worst trap of all.
¡jejejeje estupendo! I know this trap very well ;)
I'd say the Internet trap in general. You follow a link, then another one, then another one...
That is soooo true.
Yes, our way is full of such traps!
Totally agree, both with Mox's dictionary trap and L.J.'s Wikipedia trap!
Wikipedia trap - my nightmare...
That's what happens when you don't succeed to meet your fundamental needs, among other your need of belonging ( http://tradinterinc.blogspot.ca/2012/11/sentiment-dappartenancesense-of.html ) and your need of pleasure ( http://tradinterinc.blogspot.ca/2012/11/plaisirpleasure.html ), you get caught in the Wikipedia Trap or Internet Trap, call it as you wish.Sylvie Lemieux, trad. a.B.A. (trad.), M.A. (trad. et termi.), Ph.

Yesterday I fell into the YouTube trap...
I fall every night in that trap, and the next morning it's so hard to wake up...
I think I fell into the dictionary trap in about 1974... No one has rescued me. I am still there. Does anyone else ever remember the year that you first learnt a new word (and perhaps the sentence in which is occurred, and where you were at the time)? This is a little-known affliction called vocabulary acquisition documentation syndrome, VADS.
i'm with ross on tvtropes. i've lost hours there, and still cant remember what i learned, other than that anime girls are one dimensional and armor need not be protective.
