This news is coming from the UK, but if our ex-boyfriend's habits are any indication, it's still a stateside trend: 10 percent of web browsers have logged on to their laptops during visits to the toilet, either at home or at work, according to a survey by UK internet provider, PlusNet. Even though we're extra grossed out by the "...or at work" part (Does your boss notice you taking your MacBook to the loo, Brits?), we've got to applaud the effort to multi-task. What other non-desk locations are a favorite for browsing the Web? We've got the rest of the survey and a chance for you guys to comment after the jump...

In addition to the 10 percent that love to surf on the toilet, 35 percent of people in the survey have admitted going online while in bed as an alternative to the traditional bedtime read (And we know that one's true, Unplggd's already asked you if you plug in before bed.)

The favorite place to log on is the living room with 40 percent, with the office/study coming in at just 20 percent.

We should probably mention that the survey found 85 percent of Web surfers have Wi-Fi access. We hope that the 10 percent of potty readers are included in that 85 percent, otherwise some embarassed and bare-assed people have actually taken the time to run an Ethernet cord to their washroom.

Are you brave enough to admit that you're toilet surfing right now, Unplgg'r? Where are you checking us out from right now? Do you wish you could do more bathroom multi-tasking? Maybe you need Washup, the clothes-washing toilet.
