Sad yes, tragedy...no.
Yet another death caused by stupidity that will no doubt litter our newspapers and media for days and days just like Amy Winehouse.
No scratch that, i care more about this poor fool than i do her.
Reality check:
A corporal names Mark Anthony Pailin was killed a week or so ago serving in the UK army, he did more for his country than some fat kid addicted to Halo and Amy Winehouse combined yet you hear nothing on the news or in the newspapers about him.
Ok rant over.

Amen to that!

Weather you are going to get a blood cloth or not does not really depend of how long you are sitting down or how long are you gaming for, directly. Indirectly maybe, but its more to do in what state you health is overal. Like diet for instance, activity, levels of colesterol and sugar in your blood etc.

They are accusing gaming as the cause of death. I find that hard to believe since i used to play WOW 48 hours straight from time to time, but i get up grab some food (eat infront of PC ) glass of water or something, it all works.
