this actually happens all the time in eastern counties

I remember a story about a boy who killed himself because he somehow thought it would get his computer game character some super rare weapon. Dont think he thought it through very much since he cant play when he is dead, and how the **** is killing yourself going to change your videogame items?

I think i played unreal tournament for about 4-5 hours once.. and I almost went insane after..

I used to play my RTS games ever though, like 6 hours straight, same with the max payne games when I first got em.. but now I cant play longer then 10 mins.

if it were even possible to not fall asleep for 5 days, you'd be in the hospital anyway from extreme fatigue.. or just pass out

You would have to take drugs or something to stay up that long, your body wouldn't allow it, you would just shut down and sleep.

-edit- talking about the 5 days, 50 hrs is entirely possible... albeit stupid
