In one of the boldest attempts to blame technology for their problems, a poll by Developing Patient Partnerships (DPP) in Britain showed that more than a third of men, and just a quarter of women, turn to booze when their computers crash or cause them trouble. I mean, wow. Almost a third of folks said that IT-related problems were a huge source of stress, causing many of them to also light a cigarette. Come on, you can laugh. I know you want to. You'll be happy to know, however, that death and divorce still top the list for stress and the self-destructive behavior that tends to accompany it. Thanks DPP. I feel a lot better now.
