Who is acting less optimally?

a) He who spends all class perusing facebook on his laptop, or
b) He who sits next to him and haughtily looks down at him for not paying attention?

I would initially assume a, but I'm beginning to think that it might be b. Being proud of yourself for not procrastinating can be dangerous. Suddenly you're also not paying attention to the material. At least the person on facebook is enjoying himself. The other option is, of course,

c) He who daydreams of posting in his blog, instead of listening to the teacher of his Learning and Behavior class.

I think we can all agree that c is the most contemptible.
