Oh my god. This is just so….. fucking funny! Bwahahahaha!
Okay, for those unwilling to click the link, the story is about a man who died of deep vein thrombosis because he sat and played Xbox for twenty, count ‘em twenty, frikkin hours. Dude, get up and get a soda. The real funny kicker was that the guy was about to go off and “study” video game design at a university, which means that if he hadn’t died here he would have just died later, from the same thing. Hello natural selection. The family is trying to raise awareness for “the health risks of playing online computer games”, which is kind of like raising awareness for the health risk of headbutting bulls: it’s not necessarily the bull’s fault. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating on the family, this just seems like one of those “the universe despises you, Timmy” moments.
If you’re so deep in your fantasy world that you forget to get up and eat or use the bathroom, it’s probably best that you go softly now, as opposed to in 15 years when you’re paunchy, balding, alone and ugly. Die beautiful, baby.
