FACT: Many of us go online for no reason

Although we assume that you turned on your laptop just to check out the latest happenings at Animals Being Dicks, for many people, the act of going online often has little to no motivation.

Yes, strange to believe, but some people just open up their web browser just because they can. An earth-shattering report from the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project (?!) found that 53% of 18-29 year olds will go online just to pass the time.

Of all adults that use the internet, nearly three quarters web surf for no real reason. This means that more of us go online to do nothing in particular, rather than solve a mystery, attempt to find a cure for cancer or research home-brewing methods.
