So, you know how when you work you can get in the zone?  Then, some one comes up to you and starts talking.  And, you feel like your world gets altered a little with the interruption.  Well, it does.  There is a study from Carnegie University in Yahoo finance that says you actually become 20% dumber when you are interrupted at work.  Then, it takes you 30 minutes to recover.  Good times.  Oh, and a separate study says we get interrupted every 11 minutes.  Wait, so does that mean we pretty much stay dumb all day?!?!
