It depends on the website. CNN.com, probably not too many. Fark.com, probably about 40%. I Can Haz Cheeseburger? 100%.

It is always surprising to me how many people used to say the wis.dmed drunk or high…I could never tell and always wondered why anyone would do this..

Bluefreedom's avatar

How about 38.75%?

DeanV's avatar

42%.

100% of people who think I Can Haz Cheeseburger is funny are high. Maybe not the people just browsing.

What do you mean by high? To me that means someone smoked weed. So, if I extrapolate myself to the entire population, then I’d say about 29% of people are high while they are on the internet, at any given time.

@tinyfaery High as in not limited to weed. Includes people on prescription meds.

I don’t really see pill poppers jumping on the internet when they’re high. That’s more of a drinking and smoking activity. Well, at least IMO.

@The_Compassionate_Heretic If you asked my mom what “high” meant (she was born in the mid 30s) she would think “drunk”. Good thing she didn’t know what my friends and I were referencing in the early 90s when she witnessed the video we took of ourselves when we were “high”.

Bluefreedom's avatar

@SeventhSense and @Simone_De_Beauvoir. I’m in the always sober club also.

Tink's avatar

@SeventhSense Ive only smoked once, and i don’t drink alot, just when I’m in pain

DeanV's avatar

I’ll go ahead and join the always sober club, if that’s alright. Not into that kind of stuff.

Tink's avatar

Jeez, now I feel ashamed of the shit I did, I’m a bad seed :(

@Tink1113
I’ve done enough substances in my youth to kill a herd of elephants, so don’t feel bad. I’m lucky to have lived and I trust that many of these folks are speaking from hard earned experience at how to not screw up your life.

@SeventhSense
Ive stopped now, don’t wanna smoke again it’s not a great thing to do. I don’t know why I did it but it was not pleasant.

A lot, I’m sure now because several times people send me smilies or something saying, “I’m so high right now”, at least they’re not out on the roads drunk and killing people. fark that icanhascheezburger shite!

The_Compassionate_Heretic's avatar

@hungryhungryhortence Agreed… I don’t like the “hey everyone! I’m high/drunk/sniffing paint thinner” posts.
