Hmmm.. The internet has it's ups and downs like most things. It really depends on the individual, though. My friend spent $60 bucks for some gold in the world of warcraft. To me, that's a bit extreme. Like myself, I'm on whenever. I use the internet to buy plane tickets to go home, order things, contact friends, save pics, learn some guitar tabs, etc. Now, if you're into downloading hacks, punters, and stuff, you're bound to crash your own computer and get into some serious trouble. All should be well if your careful on what you download and have virus protectors and firewalls. Like they say, you can never be too safe.
