How easy do you waste time on Wikipedia?

So many times I have been reading a wikipedia page about.....lets say...history and end up with about 10 tabs waiting to be looked at which all link to subjects I know I'll find interesting which leads to another 3-4 tabs. I could spend hours just reading.

    BLAKE, where's a bloody violin? - old

    See, it either ends up just reading endless interesting articles, or doing wikipedia races with friends. Ex: start on ebola and make your way to Kanye West or something, and see who can do it first

    • Pretty easily, although recently I've found myself having 15+ tabs of music on Youtube open. And let's not even get started on TV Tropes.

      • I usually play a hopscotch paddy-whack with Wikipedia, clicking into one page after another.

      • If I look up something on Wikipedia (especially if it is quantum physics or something) I usually have a bunch of tabs open to try to understand all the new terms.

        I can easily kill several hours with 9-10 tabs open, mostly theoretical physics and cosmology. That and the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

        • When I was busy trying to kill time at school, I could easily spend 5-6 hours just reading tabs on everything from Dolphin brain structure to chemical compositions of whatever medicine came to mind <.< Having a reduced timetable with compulsory attendance days was... dull...

          • I don't go on the Wiki much. Only when I'm proving someone wrong or something. Reading in general? I usually set goals. For example, I would start reading at chapter one, and depending on if I'm tired or not, I'd read until chapter ten.
