Report – Taiwanese youth dies after gaming marathon
An 18 year old has died after a marathon gaming session, according to a report in the Taiwanese United Daily News, via AAP. The young man apparently booked a private room at an Internet cafe, fired up Diablo III, and spent 40 hours sitting almost perfectly still. An attendant found him unconscious and called an ambulance, but he was pronounced dead on arrival; autopsy is pending but doctors speculate cardiovascular issues related to not moving for nearly two days. Friends, do you need reminding that there is not a single activity you should indulge in for 40 hours straight? Not one.
