A parable, courtesy of madbard:
Imagine a bejeweled goblet, shining with crystals and diamonds, filled with a magical and irreplacable golden elixir. Next to it is a giant, yawning abyss - a hole with no end. Any of the golden liquid emptied into the hole is lost forever.
That goblet represents your time. The abyss represents debating morons on the internet.
