This is why you should pay game money for these things. With paying real money, the world loses some of it's virtuality and you become more vunerable, which to me defeats the entire purpose of an MMORPG.

As for the stabbing guy, he's just an idiot.

Pretty sure it was a news article not too long ago :p

Maybe it was food deprivation or something, BUT STILL xD

Yes, you can. And then your bladder bursts (litterally), flooding your insides with urine and killing you.

Nope, not an urban legend. http://www.griffithobs.org/IPSHowTychoDied.html

Was there anything else;)?

Hah hah, he got stabbed to death...:rolleyes: Er.. hah hah?:confused:

See, that whole "dying because he didn't go to the bathroom" thing is eliminated with this baby (http://www.thinkgeek.com/cubegoodies/toys/7293/). That's right, boys (and girls).

heh one time i held it for so long my WHOLE face went numb. i didn't want to interrupt an officer and draw attention to myself...that sucked cause after like an hour of holding it..i was like '**** this!' and just got out of my seat and ran out the door and into the bathroom. funny thing is, i didn't get in trouble for it, i kept telling myself 'he's almost done talking...' but he kept on talking!!!

i'm sure that article was about the guy being food deprived or dehydrated. most-likely dehydrated.

I wonder if he plays wow. I should steal his thrashblades and put them in the auction house. :)

What an *******...

i mean, sure, it took time, and that time cost money, but that guy has some sort of anger management issue...

Well his stuff was stolen and the police didn't do anything, can't really blame him for going ape****. But he still shouldnt' have stabbed the dude, maybe mugged him and taken his bike.

Or he should have given him a swift kick to the nuts, it works every time for me :thumbsup:

Ummm.. I can't believe I read that. Read the last paragraph... it says he died of mercury poisoning.

Qiu Chengwei, 41, stabbed competitor Zhu Caoyuan repeatedly in the chest after he was told Zhu had sold his "dragon saber," used in the popular online game, "Legend of Mir 3," - quote from the article

I have worries for the human race after reading this thread... (not that I had none before reading it, but every time I see such disregard for human life I shiver...)

Need to go to the bathroom? Linkie (http://www.bebedamourusa.com/diaper-pad.JPG);) Why buy one of those hollow plastic dildoes when you can own one of these?

Look up Lineage 1 & 2 stories from Korea.

This is actually pretty tame.
