An obese 26-year-old man Chinese guy died after a seven-day “marathon” online gaming session on the last day of the Chinese New Year holiday. The guy weighed 330 pounds and probably didn’t move much for seven days. My guess is he developed a blod clot that traveled to one of his lungs.

Anyway, the article continues to say that about 2.6 million — or 13 percent — of China’s 20 million Internet users under 18 are classed as addicts. Huh!? China has 1.3 billion people and there are only 20 million Internet users under 18!? They must mean 20 million online gamers under 18, not total Internet users under 18. It seems low to me. Can that stat be right!?
