We use curiosity to discover “new lands” in our work – and in our dealings with each other, and it’s with our curiosity that we challenge our old habits and reflect upon our own and others’ actions and thoughts.

Therefore you see. Clicking a ridiculous link named “Don’t click here” is something that most people HAS to do. It lies deep within us to discover and gather knowledge about even the most useless things, and it only leads to knowledge and experience. Therefore it’s only good and healty to be curious – as long as you’re not being stupid. Besides that, it is also a challenge which only makes it hard for one to not accept it.
