Could it be possible we’re more addicted to the Internet than literally ANYTHING else?

A new survey found the top 10 things people would rather give up for a month than WiFi or their phone’s data plan . . . and it basically covers EVERYTHING we love. Check it out . . .

  1. Wine or alcohol.
  2. Junk food.
  3. Exercise.
  4. Desserts.
  5. Going out.
  6. Coffee.
  7. Sex.
  8. Music.
  9. TV or movies.
  10. Friends. (Our actual friends, not the TV show. I think.)

And the survey also found the average adult could only last 16 hours without their phone before they’d feel MISERABLE.

Warning that Christmas fairy lights can slow your Wi-Fi

 

If you’re looking for an excuse to get out of decorating your house this Christmas, here’s one your family will TOTALLY accept. They might even THANK you for your laziness.

Your Christmas lights could screw up your Wi-Fi.

A British tech company studied how Christmas lights affect your Wi-Fi, and found that the electromagnetic interference from the lights might slow it DOWN. So if your Netflix gets choppy, maybe it’s your decorations.

They also might NOT, since there are a ton of factors at play . . . but they MIGHT. And is there ANY possibility that’s more frightening?

They say things like baby monitors and microwaves can also mess up your Internet speed. So, um . . . I guess let your baby fend for itself and stop eating Hot Pockets?
