Al of them...except the online dating. I can lie about my weight to my husband, in person.

I have visited YouTube, but I have to say, I rarely enjoy it. In fact, I actually delete many of the links that have been sent to me recently from there. And I don't lie about my weight - I just never speak it or write it or even allude to it in number form. Ever.

85 minutes! That's it! Just kidding that probably is about average.

I visit YouTube but only if there is a particular music video or a NY Giants video that I am looking for. It's like when I shop - I have a specific purpose and that's it. I know in that aspect I am not a typical female.

I do shop online and also access the internet - but mainly for blog reading and MIA stuff.

I fit in the 50% who refer to online medical advice instead of doctors. I hate going and haven't since I don't remember. The rest isn't really me. I am not web savy enough to do any real harm.

Yup. Cancel out the dating and you just covered my life story in the past year.

That is definitely me! I also really enjoy YouTube.
These stats are very interesting.
