Day 11

12:30 A.M.

I had to reset the timer.  I checked several web pages between 10:00 P.M. and midnight, and I checked Wreddit at exactly midnight.  So it's now been 30 minutes since I checked the internet.

5:25 P.M.

I checked Wreddit once today a little after 5:00 P.M.  The top post was an excerpt from a Chris Hero interview, and the quote sounds like it easily could've been from one or two years ago.  One of the fast-rising posts is a photo of Becky Lynch from like 5 years ago.  There's another top post with an excerpt from a Tama Tonga interview where he's bad-mouthing Dave Meltzer, and most of the commenters seem to be treating it as more of a semi-worked promo.  

One of my open tabs was a story from Jalopnik, and when I checked it I saw the sidebar area which was auto-scrolling through several different thumbnails and headlines, so I did inadvertently get exposed to some of today's news.  There was a story about a girl possibly suing Gorilla Glue, and I have no idea what that's about.  The headline identified the girl by name, so maybe she's a minor celebrity, but that still doesn't tell me why she might be suing Gorilla Glue.  There was another headline about a mayor in Texas who resigned after posting some unhinged rant on Facebook (I think).  Another headline about the rolling blackouts in Texas, and another photo debunking a viral photo which showed a windmill being de-iced by a helicopter, and of course I didn't see the viral photo in the first place.

I have the New York Post app on my iPhone, and I did open that a few times and glance at the headlines without clicking on any of the stories.  Actually, there was one story about cops breaking up a meth lab in New York City, and I did click on the story just to see what borough the borough the building from the thumbnail was located in.  It's located in The Bronx.  

I did open the YouTube app on my phone as well, which is kind of a distraction because if I watch a video I wind up glancing at the top comment.  I watched a video of an Al Snow interview, and the top comment said:  "I love Al Snow's honesty.  I could listen to him talk all day."  There were 765 comments in total.  That's the type of shit I pay attention to.  And I don't mean to denigrate YouTube comments.  In my mind they're no better or worse than the comments on any other website.  But I always have this thing (a tic?) where I pay attention to the comments.
