    Playing a game for 24hours is not the ONLY thing that can cause you to collapse.

    The media hype these things up too much, the majority of people play WoW sensibly, and still have lives, a job, get good grades etc and don't collapse.

    Also, what parent lets a kid play for 24hrs?!

    So, WoW is the media's choice of youth corruption and "oh, look at their strange and unfamilar ways!" tangent this month. Meh, it'll blow over.

    Kids playing WoW aren't out a-stabbin', though, are they?

    Only 24 hours before collapse and from the far east? how ludicrous.

    And the father allowed him to? Sure he should have stopped him before it got too serious?

    I have never played the game, and vaguely know what the game is.
