Step #1. Admitted to ourselves that we are helplessly trapped inside the interwebz and have lost any control over our virtual lives...

People, places and things, eh?


I know there's no need for me to take the test as if I didn't manipulate the truth my score would be up there with Jfar's.

Step 2 Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. too late, I am hoplessly insane.

My score 23 ! In the test there should be a choice for never. I didn't know whether is was better to answer rarely or does not apply, some things I just never do. Now if the test was purely on computer usage (when not online), I would be in trouble !!!

I did take it but quite a few didn't apply to me as I live alone and I still got a 63.
