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.

A Study Figured Out What Time “Wine O’Clock” Is

A Study Figured Out What Time “Wine O’Clock” Is

Have you heard the term “wine o’clock”? Oxford actually added it to the dictionary last year. The official definition is, quote, “the appropriate time of day to start drinking wine.” Well . . . a new study figured out what time that actually IS.

A company analyzed two million users who track their wine drinking on an app, and figured out when most people start drinking. And the answer is . . . 6:30 P.M.

They also found that the majority of wine drinking goes on between 4:45 P.M. and 9:00 P.M., with the peak between 6:00 and 6:45.
