You or the internet?

Umm, actually, the internet please:

German twenty-somethings would ditch their spouses and do without a car in a heartbeat if they had to choose between having them or Internet access or a mobile phone, according to an industry study.

In a survey by German broadband association Bitkom around 84 percent of respondents aged 19-29 said they would rather do without their current partner or an automobile than forego their connection to the Web.

Living without a mobile phone was also unthinkable for 97 percent of those questioned in that age range.

Well, I dunno. What are you looking for? Companionship, conversation, sex....these are indeed more available online than out there in meatspace, aren't they?

Or are the youngsters lying to me?
