The internet is ruining your brain

Put down that breakfast burrito and listen up. The internet is ruining your brain.

Turns out those hours spent perusing hilarious memes, Lolcats and hungover owls, is not the best way to increase your brain's productivity. More worryingly Google is actually replacing our brains.

So, now you know the truth. Next time you're thinking of opening up your browser to look at another dog with a farcical costume or balancing an orange on its head, consider the health implications. Just say no.

And if you start getting withdrawal symptoms from your lack of internet usage, just remember, we'll continue to soldier on you don't have to.
