If you answered d to any of the questions, you desperately need the assistance of Internet Rehab. If you did not pick d at all, you are probably lying to yourself and still need our program. The best course of action is to either contact one of our Nigerian customer representatives or simply subscribe to this blog.

Since this is a technology section, and keywords matter more than content, it is better to mention the continuous crusade of Apple against Samsung. Does this affect your life in any way? No, because the following image reveals that the ultimate verdict against humanity was reached a long time ago:

    In the future, use words like spouse, so you wouldn't alienate half of your readers.

  • In reply to Rick Astor:

    In the future grow a thicker skin and understand what a general term means.

  • In reply to Rick Astor:

    Wives watching internet porn is like parents having sex-- it's just a fairy tale.

  • In reply to Rick Astor:

    Yeah, and try 'world' instead of country.
    This post should be called are you a married American male who is addicted to the internet and/or pornography?

  • In reply to NDBit:

    Because of one question? I must have gotten on the Politically Correct Crazy Train by accident...

  • I guess you can almost say I am "obsessed with the Internet," but on the other hand I sort of have to be. I make my living off it.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    The food addiction analogy might be the closest. We need food to survive and we almost can't survive without the internet these days. You certainly can make a living from both food and internet, but when either takes over it will destroy you in more ways than one.

    Who is Stephen Hawkins?

  • In reply to Barry Aquarius:

    Rats! I knew there was an extra 's' running around. Will fix it. Thanks!

    In reply to Miguel Conner:

    Which now makes him Stephen Hawkin.

    I'm guessing you mean Stephen HawkinG? The theoretical physicist.

  • In reply to Barry Aquarius:

    Sigh. Yes. Typing with one hand and an infant in the other is not easy. And Dragon just hasn't worked.

  • I am definitely addicted to the internet. Internet is the way forward! On the other hand, I find it slightly terryfying. I was on my cruise, with no internet access available, it was a nightmare! On one of my shore excursions, I ended spending a few hours at the internet café. How sad!

  • At least #1d and #2d can be cured by using Firefox with Adblock, and setting the preferences to clear out all history after closing the session and using the cookie controls.

    Most of the rest can be avoided by avoiding FB.

    As far as the greatest thinker, I don't think Jobs and Woz would have a monitor into which to plug the Apple I if Edison hadn't invented certain electrical things first.
