Ready for a fun weekend? Beware of this time suck. – SCN Encourager

I hope your willpower is better than mine.

vortexI got pulled in without much of a fight.

It figures.

While most people get outright shady emails promoting bank account phishing swindles or some other scam – and have no problem deleting them – I receive truthful emails that tease out challenges I can’t ignore.

Here’s what I mean.

A couple of days ago I received an email with the following subject line:

Bet you’ll spend more than a minute on this website!
We dare you to try.

Naturally, I clicked on it right away.

Who can resist a dare like this?

The Nostalgia Machine website would prove to be a legitimate “one minute” dare killer.

It was futile to resist.

And now it’s in your friends.

Think you’ll do any better with a “one minute” dare.

I’m predicting this site’s incredibly “sticky” format will draw you in, too.

What year did you go to your high school prom?
This site will bring back a memory or two.

Do you remember your freshman year in college?
This site will clear out the cobwebs.

What year did you go on a favorite road trip?
This site will help you recall why it was so awesome.

You get the idea.

If you have any special memories at all, this site will enhance them.

It’s probably not so much time suck as it is a memory extractor.

Or a time distractor.

And how could you not?

Even I had three!

You might discover how something like this site could showcase an important part of your school district.

And that’s exactly how I’d recommend spending your time with this website now that I think about it.

Just zero in on a school connection of some kind and leave it at that.

It’s safer.

Cindy used the site to see if I could name any of the songs that were hits during the year we were married.

That “one minute” dare didn’t go so well.
