Cyberhypercavicunicucunctatalinkus
 / 

Definition: “This is a word for the act of jumping down internet rabbit holes, following one link to another, with overtones of procrastination.”

Example (from a comment): “cyberhypercavicunicucunctatalinkus is what has happened when you’re reading about BGP on wikipedia when you start work, to check a single fact, and you’ve just been tapped on the shoulder by a co-worker asking if you’re coming to lunch, and you realise you know what the Prandtl-Glauert singularity is, and how to feed horses.”
