Okay readers, be honest, how many of you guys spend an inordinate amount of time on the computer? I know that I spend enough time but I manage to have a life, however, these Chinese teens spend a lot of time and don’t have a life. If you live in China and are between the age of 14-22 it looks like you have to go to camp. This unlucky 10 day camp features a psychological test and evaluation. Then you will undergo a series of military-like drills as well as therapy.

So far, the camp is experimenting with a group of 40 teens. Yet, there are close to 2.6 million teens under 18 that are addicts, so there is still a long way to go until China can rid their country of teenage internet addiction. This idea was proposed due to recent deaths resulting from violent games and other internet problems. As a result, camp has begun and now China is working to ban violent games and new internet cafés. How many of you guys out there would have to go to camp if they lived in China? How many of you guys can relate to the picture above? Be honest folks.
