There’s little doubt that Blizzard’s World of Warcraft can be addictive. Most of you probably know someone addicted to it. But we doubt you know anyone stupid enough to pay $US14,000 to kick said addiction.
The ReSTART clinic in Seattle claims to be “the first residential treatment centre for Internet addiction” in the US, and are offering WoW addicts a 45-day course where patients are weened off World of Warcraft cold turkey. All for the low, low price of $US14,000.
Seriously, $US14,000? I know the American medical system is a joke, but I didn’t think it was that funny.
