 Interesting Start bar layout. unique

I always end up opening tabs untill my browser freezes

i usually have about 10 tabs of instructables open at anytime...

I used to think internet porn was addicting...Instructables is WAY more addicting.

instructables is indeed, like crack. my internet went out about a month ago, and i had to detox for about a week. it was horrible. first thing i did when i got it back was instructables, then my email, then myspace lol

I'll admit that I'm "addicted" to Instructables, but since I've already read all the old instructables, all I have to do is read the newer ones to keep up (and check the forum) which at the most takes 30-45 minutes. So once you've read all the instructables that have already been posted, all you have to do (unless you want to check back on certain ones) is read the newly posted ones and leave comments where you want (as I do here :P ). Sorry, no critcism from me, since it is a valid instructable (as ewilhelm has already mentioned) and may help those people out there that are too addicted and can't stop themselves from reading, rereading, posting, and commenting on instructables non-stop...

You've read all two thousand, three hundred and fourteen instructables?!? Oh yeah, Geek Crack. (Of course, I can quit any time I want... *twitch, twitch*)
