392. gamer dies in an internet café

a 30 year old pc gamer died of exhaustion at the keyboard after playing a video game for three days straight in an internet cafe.
it occurred in china.
these kind of things always seem to occur in china.
good thing for the manufacturer too.
if it happened here, there would be a class action law suit holiday for sure.
so if i were a game maker, i’d be proactive and get a warning message on the boxes licketty split.
something like:

warning: the chinese government surgeon general has determined that playing video games for more than 71 hours straight kills.

on the other hand, maybe this is just another case of natural selection getting rid of bad apples in the gene pool.

on second thought, forget the warning labels, provide free double expresso refills for cafe gamers.

The PC he was playing with was "Made in China" and it was full of lead paint.

Is there any way we can get OJ an internet connection in his cell?
Just a thought.
