Don't forget opening Netflix, deciding you should get back to work and closing it, and then opening it again.

Just a note for anyone who needs the alt text, at least on the iPhone you can tap and hold and it will show up.

You should also read The Last Answer, which is not nearly as uplifting of a story. And then, after having read the Last Answer, this essay will give you some insight on how to relate them to each other: http://lce-asimov.weebly.com/morality-in-the-last-question-and-the-last-answer.html
