This reminds me of when Internet addiction was made an official mental disorder in China. I’ve also heard quite a few Chinese people say that "the Internet has ruined a generation." And these are just really cute kids. There are also some good links after the break.
According to the photographer, who works for a website, the two school children filled their backpacks with waste plastic bottles and paper cups early on Saturday morning. The photographer had thought the children were from impoverished families and wanted to buy stationery with the money gained from collecting garbage.
But he was told by the boss of a recycling station, where the two children bargained the price for the garbage they had collected, that they would spend the garbage fee on hours of net-surfing in an internet cafe. The recycle station manager also disclosed there are many other pupils doing the same thing.
