ALYONA MINKOVSKI: Okay this last one, I don’t think we have time to play the clip, I’m just going to give you the statistic: Twenty-one percent of Americans said they would give up sex for a year just to keep access to the Internet.

ADRIANA USERO: Who are these people? Who are these people?  I would love to meet them.

MINKOVSKI: The Internet is kind of a big deal.

ALEX SEITZ-WALD: I am one of these people and I’ll tell you why because…

USERO: Are you dating anybody? How does your girlfriend feel about that?

MINKOVSKI: Getting all personal on happy hour!

SEITZ-WALD: If you try to have sex, your chances of getting sex are questionable. But if you want the Internet, you have a 100 percent chance of getting the Internet, so I’ll take it over…

MINKOVSKI: That is so not true! The Internet goes out all of the time. You could have a really bad WiFi signal. I pay Comcast and half the time, my Internet doesn’t work in my own apartment.  We are not the worst, apparently 56 percent of people in Japan said they would give up sex for the Internet.

USERO: That sort of makes sense, I don’t know how.
