Corpse Sits Among Gamers In Internet Cafe: Nobody Notices Or Cares!
"A Taiwanese man who died while playing video games at an internet cafe appeared to have gone unnoticed by fellow gamers for up to nine hours, police said Friday.
The 23-year-old checked in at the cafe in New Taipei city on Tuesday night and was found dead but still sitting rigidly on a chair with his hands stretched out the following night by a waitress, police said."
A dude playing a video game looks like a dead man, as he sits mesmerized before the video screen with only his fingers moving at warp speed.
The waitress probably offered to refill the dead man`s coffee a couple of times, and she may have even flirted with him. Of course no serious gamer dead or alive will be distracted by a gorgeous woman flirting with him. If Angelina Jolie flirted with a gamer, he would tell the hottie that if she didn`t get lost, he would blast her to smithereens.
It`s not surprising at all that the dead man went unnoticed, or maybe one person may have noticed but didn`t care. Don`t drop dead in an Internet cafe frequented by gamers, they will be too busy saving the world from aliens to notice that you are no longer in the land of the living.
