Computer graphics distract the eye.
Downloading music distracts the ear.
Browsing the web disturbs one’s taste.

Ordering online disrupts one’s judgement.

chapter notes:

I had a lot of fun with this chapter. My favorite part was replacing “riding and hunting” with “video games”: when you think about it, that is really the closest modern parallel.

For that matter, considering gaming-obsession and hunt-madness as similar phenomena goes a long way in explaining the original line to a modern reader.
