The solution to the Internet addicts is on the way, and should be here by 2015. According to the BBC a South Korean company is claiming that the Internet will be able to delivery smell data by 2015. Why will this be the ultimate medicine for Internet addicts? Because they will be forced to smell the people and things they look at on a daily basis. I don't even want to imagine what kind of foul stenches the Internet could produce on any given day and I don't even want to know why a smell-o-net would need to be available by 2015. Smells like a turd covered in burnt hair—name that movie!

Speaking of smelly Internet; it is ironic how the BBC decided to use a picture of a bunch of South Koreans playing WoW in a room to go with this story.
