    South Korean dies in marathon game session

    A 24-year-old South Korean man dies after 86 hours of straight gaming without food or sleep.

    According to an Associated Press report, South Korean police said today that a man has died after an 86-hour gaming marathon. The incident occurred at an Internet café in a town 160 miles southwest of Seoul, where the man, who was unemployed, had been "virtually glued" to a computer since Friday, skipping sleep and meals. The man collapsed near the café's counter and was later found dead in the restroom. Many Internet cafés in South Korea are open 24 hours a day.

    Geeez guys. Maybe you should write all those oh-so-witty comments down and send them to the guys family. I'm sure they'd make them feel better about the death of their son.

    Boba Rhett, someone stupid enough to forget to eat and sleep, who ends up dieing because he's obsessed with computer gaming deserves to be laughed at. Sure, it's morbid humor, but when isn't utter stupidy funny. On a lighter note, this guy's a shoe in for the Darwin Award this year.

    Alright, there is no need to get into an argument over this.

    The real sad thing about this story is that it isn't the first time I have heard of this happening. I've heard of this happening on at least three other occasions.

    Or maybe you would have hot pockets because you did not take a bathroom break!

    I don't know QLD, have you ever played UT2003? That game is seriously, the best game ever made. No competition. At all. In the least. Doom III? Um...NO.
