CNN reports that a Beijing man collapsed and died after an apparent 72 hour gaming binge at an internet cafe.

People of Earth, don’t be stupid!  Sleep and food are necessities of live.  Let me break it down for you mathematically:

Improper Nutrition + Sleep Deprivation = DEAD

Don’t get me wrong.  I am a fan of the hardcore raiding.  I understand the need to frag that dragon, or complete that quest for those tricked-out shoes, but you know what?  A gamer who quits and sleeps away, lives to quest another day.  

[edit]  Correction – The deceased was from Guangzhou, the story was out of Beijing.
