If I play a video game that lets me create my character, I don’t have to think about washing my water bottle. If I go deep enough into a disturbing 4chan mysteries video, I’ll remember to clean my cat’s litter box. If I write enough code, I can ignore my bad posture. I’ll eat dinner after I finish this online IQ test (I find out at the end it costs five dollars to get my results). I need to use the bathroom then I can be free in my infinite fantasy!
