This question already has an answer here:

I love the "Hot Network Questions"... so much that I am looking up real work and the next thing I know 45 minutes have gone by and I have not even read what I came for. This happens multiple times a day -- you can do the math.

Is there a way to turn them off or hide them from my normal view?

Sorry, I just found Disable hot questions to prevent distraction (which was highly downvoted???) And it sounds like my answer is "fat chance". Thanks. I guess this can be closed/deleted.
