Jaffo's Demon

Surely if he just keeps reading he'll come across the location of a hidden treasure trove, a poem of heartbreaking beauty, or the Secret of Eternal Youth.

So he stays there trapped under an avalanche of useless facts, compelled to read because at any moment, something of real use may come across the tape.

The most compelling metaphor for Internet activity and Internet addiction that I have ever seen, written by a Polish genius in 1969. (yes, livejournal archives will last forever)
