Wee For Wii

You may have heard about the lady that died after drinking waaaaay too much water as part of a radio contest. (Info here) This link provides some audio excerpts of the contest (and the words will change on the screen to make it more interesting.) It's freaky how many times they joked about death before the contest.

All this for a $300 Wii? Are they even that much?

Her family has filed a lawsuit. Not surprised, but it sounds like she was aware of the possibilities as were the hosts of the show. I'm just not sure why anyone should be punished for something a grown adult willingly participates in.

There are 3 children without a Mommy now which is terribly sad.

Goofy radio morning shows have just about ran their course. There's always 2 guys with an over-laughing female yacking about semi-dirty teenage stuff.

Why would anyone drown themselves on purpose to get a video game system? Sad, and STUPID. The woman was stupid, and the contest was stupid. Water kills, anybody with a brain knows that. Might as well have a contest that whoever stays in the cage longest with the lion gets a free pez dispenser.

Would she be winner in the "Darwin awards"? You know, the one where idiots do stupid things that kill them, thereby taking them out of the "gene pool"? I think she would qualify (except she already has three kids).
