I figure if it's not my corpse, it's none of my business.

had paid for 23 hours at a New Taipei City Internet cafe at 10pm on Tuesday to play World of Warcraft, but died 10 hours later.

I think a refund is due here.

What, they should have tried to start a conversation with it or something?

Absolutely not. After all, a corpse is a corpse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a corpse of course....

This same exact thing happened to a neighbor of mine. His wife was so mad they ignored his corpse, she won’t let him go back there unless he has one of those “I’ve fallen and cant get up” thingies.

I regularly attend Science Fiction conventions where there's a crowd in the Gamers room. Just from casually looking in, I doubt anyone would notice if any of the gamers died on the spot. They go in there at the start of the 'con, and don't reappear until the 'con is over.

Chen’s head drooped slightly and his hands were stretched in front of him, touching the keyboard.

I'm glad they don't check my pulse at work every time I look like that.

” to play World of Warcraft,”

Maybe the game jumped off the screen and he really ran out of lives?
