Yikes! Implanting a device to let you use your mind to access the web! I spend as much if not more time than most on the web, but I'm not ready for this step by any means...but 11 percent are! I can see where a temporary replacement of a significant other can take place...key word here is temporary though...BD
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Rather than looking for their perfect match, one in four Americans say the Internet can serve as a substitute for a significant other, according to a poll released on Wednesday. ADVERTISEMENT A survey on the role the Internet plays in people's lives by Zogby International and communications consultancy, 463 Communications, found that 24 percent of Americans said the Internet could replace a partner for some period of time.
But although American may love the Internet, most are not prepared to implant it into their brain -- even if it was safe, the researchers said.
Only 11 percent of respondents said they would be willing to safely implant a device that let them use their mind to access the Internet although one in five would insert a chip into a child 13 years old or younger to help track them.
