Should You Check Your Email?

Friend-of-Gizmodo and Amazing Human Being Wendy MacNaughton painted this fantastic new chart that helps you decide whether or not you should check your email. (Spoiler: Email is the literal, biblical Devil.) If all infographics were this good we might actually publish more of them.

It showed up on a Forbes blog post on managing distractions that seems to be basically published by Dell. I can't make heads or tails of it, quite honestly, but it did contain this kind nug of info: "overdoing email can be as detrimental to your IQ as smoking weed."


Why, I'm stoned right now cause I've been hanging with the Dell dude, dude! No, wait, actually, I'm just checking email. As far as you know.
