Too Much [Internet] Bad for Marriage

Glenn Reynolds points to an incredibly thinly sourced AFP report that “Too much time spent on the Internet” is straining marriages in Ireland.   One naturally extrapolates that to other countries causing the man who spends approximately 27 hours a day online to quip “Uh oh.”

Rather than spend time harping on the fact that professional editors let this horribly written piece see the light of day, I’d simply note that “too much” of anything by definition strains a marriage, is harmful to one’s health, hurts one’s career, and so forth.  Otherwise, it wouldn’t be too much, would it?

    If I had 27 hrs a day, Dr JJ, I think I’d spend 24 on line and 3 sleeping.
