Actress and writer Brea Grant has had a hand in most aspects of pop culture, from starring in shows like Heroes to authoring comic books, so it’s only natural she’d be drawn to the great glowing nexus of zeitgeisty ephemera that is BuzzFeed. Plus, who doesn’t love quizzes?

Trouble is, once you start clicking, it’s impossible to stop—especially when the headline “700 Household Products That Contain Baby Blood” is looming at the top of your screen. (Scroll down, however, and you’ll find that the content is endless, a cascade of pure distraction.)  

Will Grant ever break free of her mounting fixation on all that is LOL and viral? Doubt it.
