A study was recently conducted to gauge modern family values. It's good to see that scientists and other really smart people are working on the big problems of the day, because doing things like curing AIDS, ending poverty and achieving world peace are all much closer to being solved after they've called a bunch of people up and asked them whether they enjoy staying home on a Friday night to play Jenga with their 6 year olds.
Actually, it's a little known fact that the only reason the levees broke during Hurricane Katrina is because 4 out of 5 dentists couldn't be reached to give their opinion of new Scope Cool Mint.
So, this really important survey found that 9 out of 10 people enjoy spending time with their family. I don't know what 9 out of 10 people saying that they enjoy spending time with their family says about family values. I do, however, know what it says about morality - that only 1 in 10 people can tell the truth.

immediate family, or extended appendages of rot?

I think the big problem is that 00s people find it difficult to maintain friendships. So your family becomes your default friends.
