Did they use a computer and the internet to come up with this study? In which case how many hours did they spend on each?

"the Precious"...I've heard others use that term before. gollum


If I go out of town, I am prefectly happy not to see a computer for days - there is so much more other stuff to enjoy. But at home - it's minutes, not days, and I start shaking uncontrollably!


I had a similar reaction upon reading that Mel Gibson's blood alcohol was 0.12. I thought, "0.12?! I've never been that sober."


Oddly enough, that question came up yesterday when I was guest-lecturing down at Davidson. I said no, I don't really have any problem walking away from the machine for a week or more, particularly but not exclusively on vacation. The questioner then asked if I didn't "get into trouble" if I didn't blog daily. I'm not quite sure where that was coming from ....


Hmmm. Actually, if I'm aways on vacation I tend to try to avoid newspapers and news in general. For example, we'll be taking a trip to Disney this spring and we'll be gone for 10 days. I plan to not look at a newspaper or tv show for the entire time. I might bring my laptop but only so I can post pictures. Or I might not. I might just take a 10 day break! It's good for the soul every once in a while.


I can quit any time I want. I choose not to.
