Things People Would Give Up for the Internet
Can you imagine life without the internet? Probably not. It's apart of our daily lives... we use it for almost everything! But would you risk losing the internet to save a life? Surprisingly (or maybe not) a lot of people would do, or not do, anything to stay connected to their precious interwebs.
The Huffington Post reports on a survey, by AT&T, asked 2,000 people what they would give up to keep the internet. The results may shock you:
- 55% of people would rather keep the internet THAN save a life of a stranger (61% of men & 43% of women)
- 35% would keep the internet over curing cancer.
- 30% would lose a finger
- 20% would give up love
- 15% would give up human interaction.
Overall, men reported being more willing than women to part with things like body parts or their morality. Younger respondents placed a higher value on Internet access than older folks. "
In addition, a different study from 2013, found that 85% of people would rather choose their mobile apps over having water! That's crazy. Imagine how the children in third-world countries feel about that one.
