  • Internet Addicts - the new pacifists?

    Haaretz - Caught in the Net?

    Ok, overall this is a weak editorial with practically no real point to make. But I thought this was pretty funny:

    News agency Reuters, for instance, reported last week that a senior Finnish military officer admitted that the Finnish army routinely exempts from the draft young people who are designated as "Internet addicts." "For people who play Internet games all night and have no friends or hobbies, being inducted is quite a shock. They are weak .. and unable mentally to interact outside the Internet ... we send them home for two to three years, and then we examine if they have matured and are able to serve in the army."
