Inside A Chinese Internet Addiction Boot Camp

Inside a Chinese Internet Addiction Boot Camp

You like the internet, right? Why not spend your summer in camo, learning to wean yourself from it.

As CRI reports, there are around 250 military-style internet addiction camps in China. In recent years, the Chinese government has been trying to "fix" internet addiction, something that is officially recognised in the country as a psychological illness. These camps provide a way for parents to get their kids offline.

Though, with stories of beatings and daring escapes, parents might want to think twice about shipping their kids off to internet addiction camps.

But, as these CFP photos show, there is plenty to do at the boot camps.

They can get pointed at. Point at me, point at me!

Push-ups are always fun, and no doubt a scientifically proven way to give up internet addiction.

You can work on your saluting. You, short kid in the front with your hand over your nose. You suck at saluting.

Or play in a band. History has shown that doing that never leads to any sort of addiction, so relax parents.

    Good one. They should make that for some facebook people too, you know, those who post a status every frigging minute:
    7:45 woke up, good morning world
    7:53 read facebook, not much happened since I went to bed at 5:32
    7:55 is eating breakfast from a red bow;
    8:01 the breakfast was yummy, time for a shower
    *shudder*

      Or vaguebooking.

      Commentator 1: You ok?
      Original person: No.
      Commentator 1: Wanna talk about it?
      Original person: No.

      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRGRHHGGHG I SWEAR I WILL DRIVE MY FIST SO HARD INTO MY MONITOR IT WILL DIGITISE MY FIST AND THEN SCREAM THROUGH THE INTERNET AND PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE

    That's just mean. The least they could do is teach them how to do pushups properly. If your hands are that far in front of you, you waste half your strength trying to push yourself backwards...

      That's OK, considering these are internet addicts, their body isn't used to any kind of physical activity. Might as well start with spending some energy by getting those muscles and bones moving.
      But look at those clicking finger muscles....
