this world's gone crazy!

I can't believe what I just read:

FINLAND: A FEW GOOD NERDS An undisclosed number of military conscripts have been excused from their full six-month term of duty because they are addicted to the Internet, the Finnish Defense Forces said. Doctors have found that the young men miss their computers too much. "For people who play Internet games all night and don't have any friends, don't have any hobbies, to come into the army is a very big shock,'' said Cmdr.-Capt. Jyrki Kivela. (Reuters)
