As one of the strangest nations on earth, Korea is now taking care of youths who have internet addiction. The Jump Up Internet Rescue School, is the first camp of its kind in South Korea destined to help young kids addicted to the Internet. In South Korea, ninety percent of homes connect to cheap, high-speed broadband, online gaming is a professional sport, and social life for the young revolves around the PC as they have practically universal Internet access. Up to 30 percent of South Koreans under 18, or about 2.4 million people, are at risk of Internet addiction, said Ahn Dong-hyun, a child psychiatrist at Hanyang University in Seoul who just completed a three-year government-financed survey of the problem. To address the problem, the government has built a network of 140 Internet-addiction counseling centers, in addition to treatment programs at almost 100 hospitals and, most recently, the Internet Rescue camp, which starts now. Find out more here.

Who cares if these people are addicted to the internet, leave them be. At least they aren't addicted to a drug like opium or something...

Japan is weird? We dropped atom bombs on the civilian population of Japan and claimed it was justified, instead of terrorism. I consider Americans to be the weirdest people... When our civilian population was attacked and 5,000+ people were killed, we considered it to be terrorism, after the fact that in our past we dropped atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and killed 220,000 citizens and exposed countless others to radiation. The damages of that act will be long occurring.

I think we are the weirdest people by far, anyone who thinks other wise about the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki are complete morons in my book.

So much for the American self-proclaimed title of the enemy and purgers of terrorism.

Just my 2 cents.

not to hijack but I wanted to respond to the post of the atomic bomb droppings.

Seems the Japan didnt care about that when we, the US, didnt want involved in WWII. They came over here bombing Pearl Harbor and doing Kamikaze runs. They brought it to us. They kept bring it to us, didnt heed our calls to quit and they got punished for it. In my recollection, its the first and only time an Atomic bomb (x2) was used. I dont call that terrorism. Its a pretty skewed view you got there about out history.


However, now a days, we seem to be motivated a bit differently, but thats another discussion.


Back to the subject at hand. Internet addiction (if thats even possible) is hell of a lot better than running with gangs, the mob, shooting up drugs, smoking, etc. I say leave them be. More North Koreans on the internet, less causing problems for the rest of the world. Now if we could get Iran to do that.... :roll:

Pearl Harbor is a military base, Hiroshima and Nagasaki are civilian cities.

It would be different if Japan dropped bombs on L.A. and San Fransico.

They (the Japanese) reaped what they sowed. Look up what Japan did to the civilians of Korea, China, Taiwan, and all the other countries within their vicinity. Korean and Chinese people got screwed over the most by Japan; countless cultural artifacts were stolen, many women were raped and killed ("comfort women"), and land was stolen. Even now Japan tries to deny what had happened... and they STILL try to steal Korean land. Yes, the atomic bombings may have seemed like a horrendous thing to do when all the other factors are taken out, but once you put the factors in it seems justified to me, if only a little bit.

I'm sorry for the slight hijack of the post.

Anyway, I don't care what these people did, it wasn't justified in my opinion. We shouldn't base our acts on others peoples acts. Stooping to their level isn't the solution.

I'm sure the terrorists attacked us on 9-11 fully believing their actions were justified.

The internet is an addiction like any other mate; same symptoms, same problems; don't be naive.

About the Atom Bomb.

We told them we were going to use it and asked them to surrender before we were forced to, but they didn't.

The Atom Bomb was used to END a war, not START one.

Ravenas, if we didn't use the Atom Bomb, we would have ended up storming Mainland Japan. This would have resulted in far more overall deaths. Sure, the Japs might be better off, but what about us? What about other countries aiding us? What about YOU?! There's a very real chance your father/grandfather/great grandfather (maybe even mother/grandmother/great grandmother) would have been involved in storming Japan, and gotten killed. YOU might not be here if it wern't for the Atom Bomb!

Eh Raven, they weren't at war when they were attacked.

As Hat points out, a mainland infantry attack would have been more bloodshed for both sides. The Americans did the right thing.


Anyways, this is great news, computer and internet addiction is very serious, and I'm glad someone's doing something about it, especially for children, before it's too late.

I can't believe anyone would be against it; I suspect anyone who is, is in denial themselves.

That DOESN'T mean it wasn't an act of terrorism, whether it was the best decision or not... We attacked a civilian population, which was an act of terrorism that was used to lower the morale of Japan, giving them no option but to surrender.

Just stop, will you? All of you, and get back to the thread's main purpose.

I do agree this is a good thing, as was mentioned, addiction is the same in every sense, no matter what the addiction is to; alcohol, tobacco, meth, dope, tabasco sauce, computer hardware, porn, etc.
It's all basically the same, nearly always affecting the person in the same ways, for example:
I could quite possibly be described as addicted to computers, I spend money on hardware, I sepdn nearly all of my free time in front of my computer, I alienate family, etc. these can all be symptoms of addiction. Let's face it, a lot of people here all have the same symptoms. Fair enough, a gaming session that lasts nearly all day, every once in a while isn't going to kill you, but what about people that died after staying up for ~50 hours, on their computers. Hopefully this is a way to stop that happenning again.

On a side note, I'm certain they're not wearing helmets just for walking about, I'm almost certain there's some activity going on, like rock-climbing, as they're all looking up. Hell, if I got sent to a camp like that, and got to do loads of fun stuff like that, that'd be awesome actually.

Internet addiction is a major thing for some people.. todays youth spend to much time on the internet and other things that can lead to weak bones.. well I seen something on the news the other day about how todays youth have way less bone density than those of the past.. and this will hurt us in the future for bones are one of the things people suffer with 1st in life from the aging process.

it was actually on the radio, he said that one way to know how your bones are holding up is when you cut your nails.. if they fall that means your screwed lol.. if they fly than you still have strong bones and you can only absorb so much calcium in one sitting and most supplements for it have to much in it that can be counter active or something like that, especially when mixing it with food.

Sometime between the age of 20 and 24 your bones reach thier max size and as a teen its more important to help your body develop as we all know :p.

Edit: he was saying something about sitting for most of your day, well its being inactive and inactive muscles only get smaller/weaker than if you were more into outdoor type activities, eg.walking.

As one of the strangest nations on earth, Korea is now taking care of youths who have internet addiction. The Jump Up Internet Rescue School, is the first camp of its kind in South Korea destined to help young kits addicted to Internet. In South Korea, ninety percent of homes connect to cheap, high-speed broadband, online gaming is a professional sport, and social life for the young revolves around the PC as they have practically universal Internet access. Up to 30 percent of South Koreans under 18, or about 2.4 million people, are at risk of Internet addiction, said Ahn Dong-hyun, a child psychiatrist at Hanyang University in Seoul who just completed a three-year government-financed survey of the problem. To address the problem, the government has built a network of 140 Internet-addiction counseling centers, in addition to treatment programs at almost 100 hospitals and, most recently, the Internet Rescue camp, which starts now.

I can't really say Koreans are weird . . . at least compared to us Americans.

At least the majority of their youth are only addicted to the internet . . .

Our youth have so many different problems, we sugar coat it by giving them labels - oh, and the US literacy rate, IIRC, is below Korea's.
