    As it should be. :lol:

    Here is a picture I found a while ago that pretty much sums it up:

    Lol, yeah that's true. Although not with me, I try to keep myself on a time limit schedule and turn the internet off every couple of hours.

    You know what? I may be guilty of using my computer until some ungodly hour in the morning, but I wouldn't mind a girlfriend instead.

    By the way, the stick figure comic is from XKCD. Go check it out if you're a computer/maths nerd.

    In a non-geeky way whatsoever, I would take my gadgets over her.

    For the most part I would say Girlfriend over Gadgets, especially considering many of them can be played with them, like a console or whatever. So your still spending quality time with both and not leaving one of them out (if your one of those people who count a video game console as a person with feelings :wink:)

    Hmm.. we're both geeks so we'll both stay up late playing around with them :lol:

    I always end up falling asleep on the sofa while Jay plays a game, but we always go to bed at the same time when he realizes I'm sleeping lol. I'm not bothered either way though.. as long as I get my sleep I'm happy :)

    I'd choose Girlfriend over Gadget. Not to mention I'd try to find someone that wouldn't mind playing a video game with me, maybe co-op mode or something. If not, I'd make a schedule on which days I should stay up playing something, and days I should just go to bed.. It's only a mere dream for now, parents are too light of sleepers.

    Very interesting article.

    I'd like to be righteously angry about guys ignoring their wives/girlfriends for shiny gadgets, but I know I would be the same way. :lol:

    I'd never choose a gadget over my boyfriend.
    Anyone who would deserves to be single and starved for sex forever.

    XKCD FTW!

    It's ironic that I'm the one that's wrong, and keeping her up a lot of the time...so I'm not sure on which side of the line that is.

    It's the best to have a girlfriend that knows her gadgets. (y)

    That'd sure suck if her boyfriend was a casual gamer. *Cough*

    You are so damn casual.

    Pff, and you know you'd get an iPod if you could afford one.
