Conducted by Harris Interactive, the survey also claims that 29% of U.S. citizens don’t have a problem with checking their mobile devices during weddings, while 41% are okay with connectivity during family dinners. Though the firm’s definition of “plugged in” is hazy and the number of participants of the survey is unknown, according to Harris, Americans say they’d rather get a colonoscopy than deal with a computer with a virus. (That, at least, we can agree with.)

“While some of these results may seem amusing, they show that staying connected is a very serious issue to many, no matter what the circumstance,” said PC Tools vice president of marketing Stephanie Edwards. “It is also noteworthy how we entrust our computers and the Internet with our most intimate details — even if we don’t have the time or inclination to worry about computer maintenance or safety.”
