Weird Fact Wednesday: Email Lowers your IQ

I’ve decided that every blog needs a gimmick. Mine is going to be weird fact Wednesday. Can you out-weird-fact me?

Fact 1: According to a study quoted by the August NZ Readers Digest Magazine (p.14), “…email can drop your IQ by as much as ten points.” Apparently, it has to do with a disorder called “infomania” where “people become addicted to checking their e-mail and text messages…”

Hands up everyone who gets withdrawal symptoms if cut off from the Net?
