Would You Give Up the Internet Forever in Order to Save a Stranger?
Most people wouldn't.
This morning Sean and I talked about the new survey that asked people if they'd be willing to give up their internet access FOREVER to save a stranger's life.
The results are shocking. 55% of people say they'd rather keep the internet.
61% of men would pick the internet over a person's life and 47% of women would.
Also revealed in the study -
- 35% would rather keep the internet than cure cancer
- 33% would rather give up their sense of taste than lose the internet
- 30% would cut off a finger
- 20% would give up love
- 15% would give up human interaction
It made me wonder, what would I give up...
The internet is kinda important. I really can't do my job without the internet.
Would I give up...
wine - yes
a foot - maybe
kissing - no
chocolate - reluctantly, yes... but that would be a challenge
your spouse - yes (wait, is he reading this?)
your pet - yes
coffee - yes, but also difficult
furniture - hmmmmm... yes
shoes - all shoes, or just fancy ones??
sex - NO!
What about you? How important is the internet to you?
