No explanation is required, for any avid Internet user can instantly recognize the truth in this illustration entitled the Bermuda Triangle of Productivity. The geographical region within the Atlantic Ocean has been the site of many mysterious plane crashes and boat sinkings, and has been adapted here to explain the phenomenon of one's missing train of thought as well.

Your work becomes that troubled plane while your conscious perhaps cries "Mayday!" from the cockpit. The three points that join Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico are re-labeled as Twitter, Gmail and Facebook, suggesting that engagement with these three online activities can result in losing your concentration and course. Cleverly drawn by Fuchsia Macaree, the Bermuda Triangle of Productivity is also measured in time, rather than distance.
