Internet use good for brainHere, there is finally good news about surfing that immense, porno filled black hole that sucks away times from your real live. BBC news has a report on this. Lets read some quotes from the news,

“Researchers say this might even help to counteract the age-related physiological changes that cause the brain to slow down.”

“Rsearchers also say that, compared to simple reading, the internet's wealth of choices required people to make decisions about what to click on in order to get the relevant information.”


Professor Smith said: "A simple, everyday task like searching the web appears to enhance brain circuitry in older adults, demonstrating that our brains are sensitive and can continue to learn as we grow older."

Thanks, Mr Smith. Now I can show this to my wife and stay longer on the web.
