I'm addicted to the Internet. I just can't do without it anymore. I need to check my mail and Orkut scraps daily. There are contests that need entering. And of course utilities, songs and videos to download. And when all that is done, there is so much to explore and discover.

I use the net for everything nowadays. And I *can* use it for pretty much everything. I had to find out the numbers of KFC and McDonalds near where I live. So I Google'd the keywords, found the sites, went to the appropriate city page, and voila! There I had it, all the contact numbers. I downloaded the menu for Pizza Corner from their site. I didn't need to ask anyone for any of those things. And that's the way I like it. :D

Whenever I need to find out about a movie or some application or form to fill or symptoms of a disease or details of anything, the first thing I do it get online. More often than not, I find what I'm looking for. Only as a last resort do I go and ask someone for help.

Of course, it doesn’t help my social skills any. But I'd rather deal with search engine results rather than actual people any day. However, not all sources on the Internet are reliable. It's always better to check out the credentials of the contributor.

Oh, and if I wasn't addicted, you wouldn't be reading this now :D

I feel exactly the same way. i need the internet to check up on every little thing. I read about something and I start poring over the web for stuff [this of course begins at wiki ;)]
Nice to know I'm not alone :D said...

:D Exactly! I cross-check every thing on the net now! I've been setting all my contacts right when they forward me hoaxes, and now it's gotten so bad, I don't get any mail at all! :D

And don't get me started on Wikipedia! It is such a treasure trove of information; I've spent whole weekends following links from article to article!
