SEOUL, South Korea - A South Korean man who played computer games for 50 hours almost non-stop died of heart failure minutes after finishing his mammoth session in an Internet cafe, authorities said on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old man, identified only by his family name Lee, had been playing online battle simulation games at the cybercafe in the southeastern city of Taegu, police said.
"We presume the cause of death was heart failure stemming from exhaustion," a Taegu provincial police official said by telephone.
Lee had recently quit his job to spend more time playing games, the daily JoongAng Ilbo reported after interviewing former work colleagues and staff at the Internet cafe.
Despite this sad news there is a bright side. Apparently a woman who had been playing online against the man for the same period also resides in South Korea and goes by the alias, Dena. If anyone has any information concerning the whereabouts of this mysterious online phenom, the appropriate authorities should be contacted, IE., the Taegu provincial police.
This is not a joke.

Taking in the scenery at Smith Rock I can help but wonder what am I thinking? And this is what makes us human. Some say its OCD. I say shut up and stop thinking. Ahh. I apologize for the shadows which mask my brilliant tan. I'm not posting this picture because I'm into myself or anything I just want everyone to see I'm not butt-white, I am in fact almost black, especially in the shadows. Speaking of shadows, people look way better in shadows. Maybe instead of wearing make up self-conscious girls should flee from the sun and artificial light rather than seeking it and bask in the beauty which the dark provides. And I don't have OCD. PS. Beavers are human. If I could only be a beaver. If anyone knows how I can become one let me know.
