    sad but is it accurate?

    This is of course a very sad story. However I think you have to take the details with a pinch of salt considering it was reported by the state newspaper.

    ur doin it rong

    Yes, because clearly the first step on the road to becoming "an outstanding politician or economist" is spending all day on the internet...

    Who do you blame?

    The internet, Marilyn Manson, Doom, Grand Theft Auto, Hollywood Action Movies, Pornography, Liberalism, Communism, Fascism, America. George Bush, Gulf War Syndrome, GM Crops, MacDonalds, Consumerism, Childrens television, MTV, Rap music, and global warming but FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T BLAME THE KID.

    Just goes to show what a good smack as a child can do for you in later life; I know I don't go stabbing my parents.

    That's true, I was never smacked as a child and I stab my parents on a daily basis. Your argument holds every single drop of logic-water. But yes, the kid did it, in the kitchen, with the stabbity stab.

    How come we see so many stories of chinese people dying in, near or because of cyber cafe's? is it a new way by the govt to keep numbers down?

    If you're going to report Chinese propaganda, could you at least have the decency to not report it as if it's true?

    The net is evil.....

    If his mother had given him a good clip round the ear the first day he did not go to school and told him it will get harder everyday, he may well have stayed in school and learned something, and maybe even been able to get free net in the school.......

    Behavior like this has nothing to do with rock music, video nasties or any of the crap blamed for it, too soft parenting is the curse of modern 'civilised' society.

    Children dont need to be beaten but they do need a smack, watch _any_ animal family, lions, monkeys, elephants, the offspring get a nip,smack or trunk whipping if they stray out of line, its nature, to not do it is against nature.
