Would you give up sex for a year to maintain your broadband connection ?

[quote=BBC News]The study also provided an indication of the UK public's growing love affair with the web.
While only a quarter of those surveyed said they would consider giving up sex for a year in order to maintain their broadband connection, the figures for other vices were much higher.
Some 65% would give up alcohol, 76% chocolate and 78% coffee.

So the Beeb considers sex, alcohol, chocolate & coffee all as vices?

Considering what is frequently reported as the largest part of the internet then giving up sex, for some, must make having broadband redundant Wink

As the old saying ' If God had invented something better then sex he kept it to himself.  Or something like that.
