Nice one!

Scored an 82, answering honestly. I fantasize about being online when I'm AFK. :whistling:

Your Internet usage is causing significant problems in your life. You should evaluate the impact of the Internet on your life and address the problems directly caused by your Internet usage.

I scored a 51. I realize and readily admit my addiction to the net. It's still healthier than other addictions such as smoking or gambling.

I fantasize about being online when I'm AFK.

I realise this is a few days late, but that made me laugh.


Audibly.

76....That's cause of COD2 and all the wonderful tech reviews and forums etc.

Levels of addiction
1.Internet is a tool
2.Internet is entertainment
3.Internet is Convenience
4.OMG OMG Internet is meaning of life!!!

Seriously thou, I do know a lot of ppl that are affected greatly by the Internet. In China right now, they are calling internet addiction an Epidemic, because tens of thousands of teens are addicted to IM, IRC, and Online Games it's their way of rebeling since it's hard to get your hands on drugs in china(you get in serious trouble with the law). And by addiction i mean serious addiction, i have seen a few reports of kids spending a week in an internet cafe (no way they can do it at home, cause asian parents will murder you as soon as they see you not studying). Internet can be dangerous because there's just sooooo many things to do, but in reality internet is nothing but a tool. Or more precisely "a series of tubes, not a dump truck" (Hope senator stevens gets addicted to the internet!"

54 :blink: hahaha I surf and compute while watching TV. No wonder I can never get any housecleaning done.

Maybe I should hook up that color laser printer I bought last November that's just been sitting in the box near the entry way.


I do get very grumpy if I'm not able to get online. I do everything on the internet from paying my bills to looking up movie times. We immediately toss the phone books in the recycle bin when we receive them. I was just saying the other day they should discontinue printing those things. Same with computer manuals haha :whistling:

I answered honestly and scored a 50 not to bad as i got an average :blink:

You are an average on-line user. You may surf the Web a bit too long at times, but you have control over your usage. which good in a way as i still no when to sign off. :whistling:
