10 Signs You Are Addicted to the Internet

10 signs you are addicted to the internet.

10. You ask the librarians where they keep the Wikipedias.
9. You require your friends to authenticate their identity even at face-to-face meetings.
8. You truly expect the video of your 3rd grade play to be on YouTube.
7. You draw stick figures sideways :-)<—<
6. You narrate your life in Top 10 headlines. This morning it was “Top 10 Ways to Put Your Socks On.”
5. You count clicks on your blog with ridiculously more accuracy than you count calories.
4. You get a letter in the mail and you have to scan it in before you can read it.
3. You think the word “viral” means something good.
2. You attempt to open real-life doors by double-clicking on them.
1. You type “my car keys” in Google’s search bar.

    Okay, so you nailed me on number five, I’m all about clicks over calories, busted!

      Funny! I don’t even keep stats. I guess I should… on both the blog and calories, huh?

    Haha, pretty nice list. When Google adds the car keys functionality to their search I’ll be infinitely grateful.

      Hey GeorgeB and Andrew, Thanks! Yes, when Wikipedia knows the name of that neighbor down the road that I keep forgetting and the key search functionality, my life will be complete.

    You are irritated to find you can’t download oil for the car when the alert pops up.

    • PurpleCar 11 January 2009, 5:40 pm

      exactly! Does anyone have any more they’d like to add?

  • Bill Cammack 11 January 2009, 5:50 pm

    hahah Really great points! 😀

    I noticed that a long time ago. People talk about “viral video” as if that sounds like a good thing, haha

      Thanks, Bill! Yes, “viral” is one of those old words, totally ridiculous change in meaning occurrences. WTH? Spam at least has its roots in true suckiness.
