Being perpetually connected through social media can increase stress, weaken personal relationships, and even cause sleep loss, according to a U.S. university.

After imposing a week-long blackout in the use of Facebook, Twitter, instant messaging and other media, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in central Pennsylvania found that the pervasive technology had hidden pitfalls.

When I was in school nobody smoked dope or had a computer.  All we had to amuse ourselves was drinking and fooling around with the opposite sex.  That's why so many of my friends became a "young papa."  Nothing to do but screw.  Think how different the world would be if we'd had computers and cell phones with which to piss away our time.
