Chinese fan dies of boredom

Quote:
Chinese football fan, 26, dies after going ELEVEN nights without sleep as he watched every single Euro 2012 match

Time difference means matches are played in the middle of the night
Jiang Xiaoshan would then go and do a full day's work the next day
Sources said drinking and smoking weakened his immune system
He was supporting England and France in the tournament

A Chinese football fan died after going 11 nights without sleep as he tried to watch every single kick of the ball of Euro 2012.
Jiang Xiaoshan, said to be supporting England and France in the tournament, died of exhaustion on Tuesday morning.
Because of the time difference, he reportedly stayed up each night with friends and then went to work the following day.

Tragic: A Chinese football fan died after the Ireland v Italy match after going 11 nights without sleep as he tried to watch every single kick of the ball of Euro 2012

Following the Ireland versus Italy match, Sina.com said he went back to his Changsha home at 5am on Tuesday, had a shower, fell asleep and never woke up.
Friends said the news of his death came as a shock, as he lived a 'relatively healthy life', and had played football for his university team just a couple of years before.

'They should toss a drachma to start the match!' Battle of the Bailout looms as Germany takes on Greece in Euro 2012 (with Merkel watching from the stands)
Sources said, however, that the effect of alcohol and tobacco, combined with the chronic exhaustion, was to blame for his death as it weakened his immune system.
It is not the first time a Chinese football fan has suffered from trying to keep up with their on-pitch heroes.

Exhaustion: There has been a worrying increase in people suffering from sleep deprivation in recent years from watching too much TV or being online
During the Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010 World Cups reports surfaced of people being admitted to hospital after their bodies broke down from not sleeping.
Sleep deprivation from playing online video games is a huge problem in South Korea.

Earlier this year video game addicts in the country were told they could have the amount of time they spend playing limited to just four hours per day.
The country's government said it was looking at introducing a 'Cooling Off' system to regulate the time students play in a 24-hour period.
It wants to stamp out online bullying, and stem a number of suicides attributed to internet and video game addiction.
Their game will switch off after two hours, where they will be given a 10 minute rest, and can then only log again in once for a maximum two hours in the following 24 hours.

Scene: The man died in his sleep after going back to his Changsha (pictured) house
It follows the Shutdown Law, passed in November, which bans gamers under the age of 16 from playing between midnight and 6am.
Fears are growing in South Korea that rampant gaming will lead to more deaths if the system is not introduced.
In February, in Taiwan, a young gamer lay dead in an internet cafe for nine hours before anyone noticed.
Chen Rong-yu, 23, was thought to have suffered a heart attack after playing League of Legends for 23 hours straight.
He was apparently still sat on the chair with his hands stretched out in front of the keyboard as if he was still playing in the cafe in New Taipei City.

RIP!!

All the teams are responsible for his death. :frustrat:

"He was supporting England and France in the tournament"

A bloody saint if you ask me, not a very well informed one, but then who in religion is informed.

Oh wait, this is the daily mail? So he was Japanese, watching baseball and went to bed at 3am.

Maybe it's because he affected his health by staying up 11 days in a row without any sort of sleep and not because he was actually bored of the games he watched. Ever thought about that?

Was that your choice or somebody tried to send you together with your dad?

Does anybody end up dead or in a serious condition after being awake for 2 weeks?

It's really difficult to believe you were awake for 13 days and it was "quite cool".

A classmate from high school didn't sleep for 2 or 3 days, may be 4. They say he was preparing for a competition non-stop, and eventually, fell asleep. According to school rumors, when he woke up, he had a hard time remembering where he was and what he was doing etc. He didn't remember himself or teachers. Only after a while it got back to him.

No we dont have to stay awake lol. It was me who stayed awake. You know I am a little ****er.
Our funeral ritual mweans we have live strictly for 13 days in one cloth, eating just one meal for a day(meal consisting ghee, rice and salad without salt) and not touch anyone live in a corner sleeping in hay bed.
People come daily at night to attend, and we nepalis are bit crazy, so for those whole 13 days we had people coming at night, playing cards, talking shit and all. So I was getting a reason to stat awake whole night. Not that i was forced, rather my elders were shouting at me for not sleeping. It was me who was not sleeping not custom forcing me.

awesome thread concept :thmbup:

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim
