IV drips for cramming high school students in China - Boing Boing


I admire students and the work they do. They inspire me. But I worry that some put a harmful amount of pressure on themselves, and I've long lost track of the number of students I've known being treated/medicated for depression, eating disorders, anger issues, and drug addictions. These students in China are taking IV drips to help sustain them while studying for exams, which I find strangely admirable yet mostly worrisome at the same time. I'd much rather live in a world where learning was enjoyable and without undue stress.
