In sadder news, a 30-year old Chinese gaming addict has died after staying up for 3-days straight (presumably mining for gold) at an internet cafe with no sleep, and very little food or water. I could've gone four.

The man reportedly lost consciousness at an internet cafe on the outskirts of the Chinese capital, Beijing.


He was rushed to a clinic but could not be revived, the Beijing Times said.

The 30-year-old man, who was not identified, was said to have spent more than 10,000 yuan ($1,500; £928) on gaming in the month before his death.

China has more than 450 million internet users, and online games - which can involve multiple users role-playing in a virtual world - are particularly popular with young men.

You've gotta take care of yourselves, gamers! You know, take a break every couple hours, do the Dew, and pound some Cheetos. Shit, you could even pound some Pringles if you wanted but personally I think they taste like ass and no, I'm not taking that back. I popped and stopped, that's all there is to it. DAMMIT I SAID IT'S NOT OPEN FOR DEBATE!

Thanks to David, who's convinced gaming for long periods can bring a player to a higher level of consciousness. It's called heaven bro, and this guy went there.
