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 30-year-old man, who was not identified, was said to have spent more than 10,000 yuan ($1,500; Â£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.
