Oh dear — looks like it’s time to add FarmVille to the list of internet addiction scares after a 12-year-old UK boy amassed £905 in FarmVille debt. About £288 of that came from the boy’s own savings, while £625 was billed to his horrified mother’s credit card.

It is like any other activity... if you don't control yourself things get out of hand. That does seem a bit extreme though, lol.

I realized I might have a problem today when I was driving down the road and saw a board, right there in the road.

My first thought was, well that would really help somebody build their horse stable.
