    Man dies after 3 day gaming binge

    I can't even think of anything to say. What is wrong with people?

    Is this another one? I could have sworn I read this same news story months ago.

    This is becoming a serious problem. We are learning about it in psych class right now. So strange at how people can be addicted to things like this so bad that they could die.

    This is pretty funny but not quite as funny as that young guy who took Viagra and speed, had sex 20 times on a weekend and then suffered a heart attack--lol

    *HOW* did he do it?!! I like to play online games, but there comes a point when my body says "No more, you need to sleep!" and I log off and rest. I don't even go a full day online, I get up and go rest well before that. (No problems making sure I'm hydrated, and fed, not to mention bathroom breaks.) THREE DAYS?!! Did he eat and drink? HOW?!!

    Not only that, but how much did it cost him to be online at a cyber cafe for that long?

    Weird.
    Just thinkin' out loud....

    I'm sorry but that's just stoopid. Didn't he have to use the bathroom? Eat a meal? Drink some liquids? How can someone be that addicted to playing games?

    This reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode where the guy gets drawn into a machine in a casino. Not sure of the name of it off the top of my head, but if you've seen it you probably know what I'm talking about.

    Maybe that's what killed him, dehydration and kidney failure.
