OT-What level of addiction to Mgoblog do you have?
only, I call it Ohio
....it really depends...oh shit, who I'm kidding? Every 30 seconds. At work.
Sometimes when I'm on the phone with a client, I'll drift off in the conversation because I am checking Josh Furman's high school highlight clips from 2009.
Heroin + Double Stuff Oreos = MgoBlog
My name is Bryan and I have a problem.
I'm Blue in South Bend, and I'm an MGoHolic.
EDIT: beaten to the punch. Well played, Bryan.
Well, I think that Mgopoints can be (but not always) an accurate indicator addiction level.
the love-child of Courtney Love and Robert Downey, Jr...
Yeah, not always. My mgopoints do not accurately reflect the amount of time I spend on this site. If that were the case I'd be in the neighborhood of 80,000 points instead of the 800-900 I have...
Yeah, i would say, on average, I am here 2 hours a day, every day, at least. Via cell phone, via laptop while watching tv, while at work, etc.
I'm just passing through, I mean it. I was googling a cook at Brian's Diner and got here by accident, I swear. And what the heck is a Tacopants, anyway???
I don't have a problem. I can stop anytime I want.
I thought the same thing when I first saw the thread title, but apparently I am not quite addicted enough to have been the first to post it. Yay, me.
always up when I am at work! I feel like I may have a problem but have yet to come to terms with it.
Rehab is for quitters!
I realized I had a problem when I got home one night from the bar with my GF. She wanted to "go to bed" and I wanted to MGoBlog.
MGoBlog before Ho's!
"Mgobros before hoes." Why? Because your Mgobros are always there for you. They have got your back after your ho rips your heart out for no good reason. And you are nothing but great to your ho, and you told her that she was the only ho for you, and that she was better than all the other hoes in the world... and then... and then suddenly she's not yo' ho' no mo'.
I did. Now, I have no problems. S'all good.
Laptop on the back? How'd you pull it off?
I dictate while she types on the laptop on my chest. Its a nice system. Effective and very stimulating. Hold that thought . . . . . . . . .
I was thinking you might be doing something that would result in the image of your avatar. Either way, you sir are my hero.
Some fans say they bleed blue. But, if you are a true fan . . . . . . . .
This thread has now gone places that we can't go back from
Cracking up at work!!!
I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who's had that problem.
And by "glad," I mean "horrified." May Bo have mercy on our souls.
If I log off now, I can still accomplish three hours of work.
Well, I'm reading and commenting here in the middle of the afternoon on a work day, so I'd say pretty high.
It was bad during the school year, but since I'm a teacher and it's the summertime, the addiction has gone up about ten notches. Sadly though, it's June right now and I've been on more than I was during the football season. Withdrawal will be brutal...
Chunkums we need to have a talk, it appears to have gotten so bad for you that you don't even know what month it is anymore.
I just got back from 4 sleepless nights in Vegas the other day. I'm in a bit of a confused state right now, and my money apparently went through some kind of black hole.
So you're a teacher who went to Vegas with friends....heard of a movie called The Hangover?
If you didn't come back with a black eye that was given to you by a naked Chinese guy locked in your trunk, I'd say you did OK.
No, but we did have a table next to George St. Pierre and one of his UFC buddies got pissed at me when the security guy kicked him out my seat and told me to sit in it. St. Pierre was the shit though.
At least every two or three minutes. Whether I'm at work or not. 80% of my sentences when talking to my friends begin with "So I saw on MGoBlog..."
I'd ask someone here to help me with my problem, but...
"Junkies make the best counsellors, because, and here's the kicker, they're currently going through it... too."
Don't ever start a conversation with your wife with that statement. It doesn't lead to anything good. Not even if the thread is about how to give your wife multiple orgasms with the iPhone 4.
Now, I'm not saying I did that ... I, uh, heard some guys talking about it in the locker room, once....
I work from home on a laptop and have MGOBLOG open on my home computer all day long. GO BLUE!!
Me too, except my wife's laptop died, and she's been hogging the desktop in my home office. It's OK though, because her new laptop has arrived. If I can just get her to finish setting up and transferring files I'll be back to work on one PC, and MGoBlog / WTKA / iTunes on the other ....
Until you vomit a maize n blue blog. Then you know its serious.
I think my subject line speaks for itself, I refresh the page every minute to see if there is anything new. Maybe I should actually search the internet for new stuff to post?
Well, my computer-illiterate self managed to have MSN come up as the natural homepage, but mgoblog to pop up as a secret second homepage any time I open the internet. Once I see the mgoblog tab in the corner, it's hard not to make a routine check-up.
However the worst level of addiction is described, that's me.
I work in a small office and I just busted out laughing in dead silence because of that picture on the "Blow Stuff Up" thread. Now I laugh again and the office probably thinks I'm drunk.
Bo the cat approves..
So you're like that kid in "Superbad" who would doodle penises all the time except you do Michigan helmets. Wait a minute, those are nothing alike....
How bad is it that I remember who she is, and that I actually think she looked better before the intervention...
I'm so going to hell
Well, dude, she dyed her eyebrows... I mean, come on, that ain't pretty no matter who you are. That shit really must give you brain damage.
Is that what it was? I just remember her not looking that great after, but she did clean up her life IIRC.
Well that and she got fat, but all addicts get fat when they stop the "bad" craving and start heading to McDonalds for the "good" one...
I remember her AND the avatar photo of Michael Knight's evil twin brother, Garth. If only he could've showed his equally sinister 18 wheeler. Writers: "Hey, what would be the evil opposite of Kit? Great, we'll find a way for Garth to drive that." They don't make 'em like they used to.
This chick freaked me out.......I didnt have many one night stands when I was single, but this was my biggest nightmare.....waking up to this chick the next morning.
You could save so much on booze with her and just by a sixer of these:
the one and only Intervention I watched. Those eyes say it all, she was seriously disturbing. Ruined me from ever watching another episode.
in the 30 minutes since you posed the question, I'd say it's pretty god damn bad for all of us. But I do not object. In this case, I freely worship the serpent that devours me
I'm addicted to this site about as much as I am addicted to beer, which is to say "Highly Addicted".
two addictions one can engage in simultaneously. And the use of each promotes excessive use of the other!
But I've gone from MGoStalking to climbing through the window.
I quit it once. Then the site I was writing for was bought out. Sucked me right back in.
So you're saying: You could not be part of the solution so you became part of the problem?
I would say that is 100% pure colombian awesome.
just replace the white powder with mgopoints
If a fetish is a addiction then YES.
MgoBlog has replaced my Playboy and Hustler subscriptions.
Haha, I just pictured having that conversation with my wife. All I know is that she would just start hysterically laughing at me. All we have in defense is the "its a guy thing" response. Nothing more.
Not that there are any Mgoprofiles in my future. I guy can dream though right?
Surely, there's a pretty good chance that you would draw a judge with an M-Law degree. Then, its all good. Level playing field.
If we had iPhone or Blackberry Apps for this site?! Things would get out of hand.
You're not trying hard enough. (LOAD DAMNIT, LOAD!!)
MGoBlog loads much faster.
Are totally worth it!
I'm in the 5ish minute crew...
for checking MGoBlog
I could take it or leave it.
Magnus, Points leader, If you are the baseline for not being addicted, we're ALL off the hook!!!!!!
Everyone has to have that one friend that is way more of a drunk than them so they don't look like an alcoholic.
by helping all of my friends feel better about their drinking habits.
On a tangential topic, has anybody got a spare liver?
office staff actually tells me to keep my nose on this site. Maybe they are trying to tell me something?
Says the man with 26000+ MGoPoints. Did Brian reward you with that date with Jessica Alba when you hit 25000?
I saw a lot of NSFW pics I didn't have the courage to post (apparently there are a lot of people on beaches waiting for Jessica to bend over). Never have I wanted to be Paul Walker so badly.
Edit: I have you beat. But it's too NSFW to embed. So, if you want, take a look here:
Want to touch the heinie.
Legally, I'm not allowed to say.
But 50,000 gives me a date with Aphrodite herself.
MGoBlog my vice
Addicted to you I am
You are my crack rock
"Mom, you spend more time each day on MGoBlog than I do on Xbox and it's scaring me".
Hell, I just walked over to my laptop to shut it off and pack it up for my drive to MI, and here I am.
Do that a lot.
Middle of Pennsylvannia. Thank you Droid for still hookin me up with the good stuff all the way out here.
Also addicted enough to walk away from a guy who is trying to out-Michigan sportd talk me at a party or something then admits to not reading mgoblog. I currently have more than 4x my boyfriend's mgopoints. He is comfortable enough in his masculinity to let me wear the mgopants.
i recently had a phone conversation where i began a sentence "i know this is OT, but..."
i was not +1'd
I +1'd my wife's coment in a conversation once.
She looked at me like I was an idiot until I explained the MGoBlog connection and what I meant.
Then she looked at me like I was a moron.
When I first got my DVR, several times I instinctively grapped for my remote to rewind real life. Now I find myself thinking in terms of "+1" or "neg."
For the record, apparently per my HR department, it is NOT appropriate to mumble "You really need to get neg banged" to a colleague.
I've crashed 3 cars because I was on MGoBlog while behind the wheel.
I check at least every hour when I'm on the internet. It is the first place I get information for Michigan football.
I choose to view this as a thirst for knowledge, not an obsession.
People always ask me about Michigan athletics at work because I am the "expert." Little do they know I get all of my knowledge from MgoBlog. I'm a joke : /(
/ yea that's a mustached frowny face, bitch.
Would be so proud
posting this from the bathroom on my phone... yes i have a problem and i don't care...
Seriously with all us nerds on here someone should be able to whip up an android or iphone app as a side project... I'm sure enough of us would pay for it if proceeds went to the 'beveled guilt' box too
and clicked about every ten minutes or so.
mgoblog occupies the center of my google chrome toolbar.
In google chrome when you bookmark something it goes onto the toolbar lol, it's dead center on mine
this is my MGoHomepage
I swear this will happen if one more person labels a topic OT that is has the word "mgoblog" in it. How is it OT when THE WHOLE DISCUSSION IS ABOUT THE BLOG ITSELF
HOWEVEA...with all that being said I love the topic and find myself checking every half-hour while I study for boards.
Ok here's the thing. I agonized over wether I should put OT or not (thats right, agonized, b/c I want to do everything right here to avoid negbangs, and I love MGoBlog with all my heart). I decided that while it is about the blog itself, it is OT, based on what the blog represents. This is a blog about Michigan sports. It is not a blog about discussions involving the blog as a whole. Therefore I went OT. 1000 apologies for offending anybody.
- Bob Saget/MGoBlog addict: Marijuana is not a drug. I used to suck d**k for +1s.
- Rehab patient: I seen him [do it]!
- Bob Saget/MGoBlog addict: Now that's an addiction, man. You ever suck some d**k for +1?
- Thurgood: No, I can't say I have.
- Bob Saget/Cocaine addict: I didn't think so.
- Rehab patient: Boo this man!
The first time I heard that, I laughed so hard my stomach hurt. I don't know what was funnier though; Saget and Dave's (from the Real World) lines, or the look on my mom's face. She just kept saying "No, not Danny Tanner!"
I hate it when Mgoblog wins out. My girl coming up from the cesspool south of our border, and I was told ,"No Mgoblog under any circustances!"
I hope nothing breaks out this weekend...
Mgoblog.. making people inefficient at work since December 2004.
I only look at this site when my multi-million dollar porn empire starts stressing me out. Damn, you guys are nerds.
*Sighs, slowly closes laptop and weeps*
Usually it's not bad...but do you ever get those cravings...? Like, I wonder what's going on on MGoBlog tonight....hmmmm...wonder if I missed any good posts....what are they saying about this game/event/heck, even the weather....
I think I have a problem.
Edit: I'm postponing dinner so I could see what everyone was saying about LLP.
This sums it up.
I don't consider myself addicted but my eyes swelled up a little and I got a little overwhelmed when TomVH said he was going to be out of town for a week.
Can we get one of those plane trackers going to see when he will be back??
no, that's not it at all.
It's not addicting or habit forming, not really. I mean, I wouldn't consider it necessary or important or anything like that, at all.
Would I miss it? Would I yearn to visit the site over and over at odd, random times during any 24 hr. period? Lets get real. If it gets to the point where I hear about any story, Michigan-related or not, and I am instantly curious about what the board has to say about it, maybe then it could be called a hobby. Like a strong interest or serious hobby, maybe.
But not an addiction.
So, no - It's not about addiction.
It's... It's not, really. Sure it takes some time, and there are some efforts to make certain I always have access and all but that is perfectly normal. Would I be able to have more "functioning" time during the day and in the evening and at night? Perhaps, but you can say that about a lot of things.
I'm just here for the upvotes.
for the futbol talk.
A+ thread.....would read again.
Haven't post in a while, but always check my mgoblog. Last post
was a pic of Megan Fox for a fellow Mgoblogger. He was right on
a great recruit pick.
Just one more MgoBong hit and then I gotta go.
I saw this thread yesterday but actually had to be productive at work, so I didn't respond at the time (my addiction is light, it's only like one refresh per
day hour minute.
Then last night, I had a dream about MGoBlog where Brian called me out for being a bad commenter (which, touché). My addiction is so much worse than I thought...
