If not for the Internet, we wouldn't have jobs and you wouldn't be here reading the amazing Dumb As A Blog. You'd also be way more productive, and you might be forced to talk to your friends on (gasp!) the phone.
But there are also several other ways the Interwebs are slowing ruining your life one megabyte at a time. For instance — your image. Few things can make you feel as crappy and simultaneously awesome as Facebook and Google.

But on the flip side, if you post a funny status update and 24 of your "friends" Like it… you're a genius! Instant gratification. And somehow, somewhere, Google knows all of your skeletons, and it is a real bummer trying to keep them all concealed. Believe me, I know.
