ppl, you learned a lesson from this story:

do not sit at your computer for 50 hours straight.

Yeah, but that news is new. I saw it like 2 days ago... still recent. What an idiot, that guy. Playing for 50 hours straight, with only a couple of naps, and bathroom breaks... of course you're gonna die...

The first one I heard was the one where some kid in Korea played Starcraft at a PC room for 4 days straight without eating and he just died. Which was like 5 years ago.

And then there's the one where a 42 year old guy's Everquest account got hacked and he killed himself.

I'm sure there's more, but I could care less about them.

You're joking right? I seriously laughed at that. There's no people actually WANTED you to sit in front of a computer for 24 hours.
