Spreading the blame

The Not Me Decade, in which everybody else is responsible for everything, continues:

The family of a 30-year-old man who bought a Nintendo 64 game system and started playing on it eight hours a day, six days a week, at which point he started suffering seizures but continued to play on it through five seizures over 17 months until a sixth seizure killed him, is suing Nintendo because he suffered a fatal seizure while playing on it.

And what again, does this have to do with an XBox killing? Oh, I get it, games, other consoles games killed someone, so why not the XBoxes? Well, if a N64 killed someone in 6 siezures, i'd have to say one maybe two at the max with an XBox!:D

Don't get me wrong I am by no means bashing my beloved XBOX, I just thought it was a little too funny to keep to myself. The very thought of a game being the cause of someones dimise.

:cool: there's no way that they would in a case against Nintendo. Also because Nintendo didn tell them to have ABSOLUTELY NO LIFE, and even is someone actually did have a seizure playing the system...i'm pretty sure after they recorvered theyd stay the h3ll away from the system

if this is evern true... :rolleyes:

oh yeah, and thats a tabloid isnt it?:rolleyes:

dude, that is funny, I bet if he was playing xbox he would have died the first time, why you say? Because the XBOX is sweet?

he deserved to die, if he took the seizures seriously, this wouldnt have fu*king happened, and it says in the booklets and stuff, it you have experienced seizures, then you should consult your doctor or something before playing games, but he ignored 5 seizures? what a dumb fu*k. i would have stopped even with 1 seizure. what a fu*kin retard.
