  4. Procrastination

    So, seeing as you're all on shrimperzone at all hours of the day, it's probably safe to say that procrastination and the internet might be affecting your work/home/social life.

So basically, you drive slightly faster or slower than the speed you want to go at. So I normally like to drive at 80 in...
