Drinking games, keg parties, waking up in somebody else’s bed (somewhat you don’t recognize). Ahhh....adulthood? These images used to conjure up memories of those infamous college years, but according to a new study, it's people in the post-college years who are partying the hardest. Collectively, these young adults are called "Cyber Millennials" and they are generally affluent, highly educated, and live in urban areas. Perhaps most surprisingly, they’re also some of the most health-conscious people in the country.

The Pew Internet & American Life Project released a study this past weekend that details how we use the Internet. Apparently, 58 percent of Americans go online when looking for information about health, school, taxes, jobs, voting, legal issues, immigration and other key issues. That may seem low, but relative to other potential sources, it's surprisingly high. Only 36 percent, for example, looked to traditional media such as magazines and newspapers, and 45 percent turned to friends and family. Furthermore, only 13 percent went to the library. Surprisingly, though, 40 percent of respondents in the 18 to 30 age bracket known as Generation Y said they'd go to those book-filled buildings for information. Not necessarily for the stacks, though. 65 percent of them said they'd go to libraries because they have computers.—Gregory Mone
