People need to go outdoors more. Roll Eyes

An 18 year-old Taiwanese man has been found dead after booking himself a room at a local internet cafe and playing Diablo III for 40 hours straight.
Identified only by his surname, Chang, the teenager reportedly didn't eat for two days, and was found by an employee on Sunday morning slumped over a table. After being woken, "he stood, took a few steps and then collapsed". Rushed to hospital, he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.

While an autopsy is yet to be carried out, authorities suspect "that long hours in a sedentary position created cardiovascular problems", which would ultimately have led to his death.

Strange, I would have expected this kind of news sooner.

Haven't played this for over a week now. But these things always develop more extreme in Asia.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

And for eternity, his name shall be know among gamers worldwide, albeit in verb form--changged.

Susan: Did you hear about Becky's brother?
Liz: No! What happened?
Susan: He changged playing BitFleet®.
Liz: That is so sad! What was his ToP (time of playing)?
Susan: 46:34:05. Not a record, but he's currently ranked in the ToP100.

Wow, he must be good to only die after 40hrs. When I've played I get killed like every 5 mins.  [/tasteless]

This just happened recently at the soccer tournament thing. World Cup is it? W/e it is - guy stayed up for 2 days (just like this kid) for the soccer and died in the stand.

I'm not one for donations but if you must go ahead and I will keep you in mind. =)

Funny, I was going to guess an extreme lack of food, sleep deprivation, and possibly also skipping bathroom breaks.

Fucking wussies. I've played poker for 48 hours straight, billiards for 48 hours straight. They just don't have the constitution.

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

We had this with a truck driver lately, his hit count was much better:
1 bridge pier
2 trucks
13 cars
plus 5 hours road blocked

The paining (sic!) is done with the QPainter class inside the paintEvent() method.
