Parents in China who are worried about their kid's internet "addictions" are turning to boot camp to fix things. For the equivalent of $1200 or so, the kids are shipped out to camp, where they're involved in activities like dancing and military training. Most of the kids are "only" children of wealthy parents and are used to a "pampered" lifestyle, meaning the bootcamp shakes things up a bit for them. And the kids who are shipped there sound like they really need something - one actually attempted suicide when his parents took his modem away!? Apparently there is a 70% success rate at the camp. Hhhmm.

Linds, come here, we're going on a little vacation.......
