It all starts so innocently – you’re reading an article, or looking up a detail about a musician your friend mentioned at dinner, and then suddenly you’ve discovered a member in your favorite 1960s singing group is actually the grandmother of the Butler brothers in Arcade Fire.

That’s when you realize you’re in it: the (Internet) Rabbit Hole. 

The Internet can take you anywhere. In a lot of cases, that’s a good thing – there’s a wealth of information at your fingertips. Sometimes it can even be turned into a game.

Do you ever get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information available online? What is the last Internet rabbit hole you went down? Call us at 866-893-5722.
