Are you an addict?

    OK, local news here just had a story about Chinese kids who are being put into boot camps and subjected to low-level shock therapy in some cases because they're 'addicted to the internet.'

    Doctors (whomever they are) define internet addiction as anyone who spends four or more hours a day online.

    If that's the benchmark, how many of us here would be considered addicts?

    I raise my hand to start, although I'll be damned if I'm gonna get shock therapy to help kick the habit :D

    If the limit is four hours before noon, then I'm screwed.

    Four hours all day? I'm like three-times screwed.

    I'm just doing it to keep up with everyone else.

    If I'm not on the Internet 17 hours a day, someone else will be.

    What do you do for the other seven hours? Sleep?

    Bless you Zeke.

    If you ever need a laywer, look up Matt Durning. He's in the book.
