Again? Another Chinese Man Dies After Three-Day Computer Game Binge?

I'm a little worried about this story, because I just linked the exact same story, more or less, like six months ago. And yet the article is dated today, and Google News shows another outlet picking up this story eight hours ago.

Not sure if this is just an old story being discovered rather late by the MSM. Maybe they don't have Dave there to say "It's Old!"

So, anyway, even though I think this is a repeat, here you go:

A man in southern China appears to have died of exhaustion after a three-day Internet gaming binge, state media said Monday.

The 30-year-old man fainted at a cybercafe in the city of Guangzhou on Saturday afternoon after he had been playing games online for three days, the Beijing News reported.

Paramedics tried to revive him but failed and he was declared dead at the cafe, it said. The paper said that he may have died from exhaustion brought on by too many hours on the Internet.

Ogre Gunner offers the analysis: "Pussy."

Well, he got the Silver Key to Heaven. So he has that.
