suckers for irrelevancy

More on the deep thinking thread, this time from Stanford University where a news article summarizes a study that multi-taskers (which I include myself in that group) should worry about.
High-tech jugglers are everywhere – keeping up several e-mail and instant message conversations at once, text messaging while watching television and jumping from one website to another while plowing through homework assignments.

But after putting about 100 students through a series of three tests, the researchers realized those heavy media multitaskers are paying a big mental price.

"They're suckers for irrelevancy"
Uh oh Indy.
