    1. You place your refrigerator beside your computer.
    2. Tech support calls YOU for help.
    3. You start to experience “withdrawal” after not being online for a while.
    4. Being called a newbie is a major insult to you.
    5. Your teacher or boss recommends a drug test for the blood shot eyes.
    6. You get up at 2:00 AM to go to the bathroom and turn the computer on instead.
    7. You block out disturbing thoughts about your life with soothing thoughts of the Internet.
    8. It takes you 15 minutes to scroll through your bookmarks from top to bottom.
    9. When you check your mail and it says “no new messages”, you check again just to make sure.
    10. You refuse to go to a vacation spot with no electricity and no phone lines.
    11. You ask your doctor to implant 1 GB in your brain.
    12. Your wife says communication is important in a marriage so you buy another computer and install a home network so you can chat.

    Wow, I love the internet but I guess I'm not considered addicted.

    Thought about it, but never actually did it.

    I have come close to that, I have had tech friends call me to fix a problem they are fixing for someone else.

    Nah, I welcome a break away from this ugly place. :p

    haha, sometimes.

    I have had someone mention that before

    Never done that

    Nope

    It takes a little bit, but not that long.

    I definitely do that one...

    I welcome it

    I have made a joke regarding that.. I have a horrible short term memory.

    Not married!

    heheh... that reminds me of another possible item

    You usually come back from a party/disco/concert at almost dawn and check a few sites before going to sleep.

    Hey Lord and MFG carried on in chat rooms, while living in the same flat...of course they were bachelors at the time.
