    It's strange what people would do for needless material possessions. I mean if this were a PS3, or even an Xbox360, I'd understand but this is a Wii.

    people are disgusting animals that will kill themselves for things that will be obsolete in less than a year.

    while i find the disc jockeys to be vermin i also think the woman must have been mentally unstable to a large degree in order to hurt herself to that point over a cheap fucking console.

    was she really too poor and cheap to afford three hundred dollars for a child's present that she had to injure and torture herself?

    the scenario really cements in the reason why i have little empathy or concern for the plight of others.

    If the woman didn't have the IQ of freeze dried brine shrimp, she would've known that chugging water causes hyponatrimia. Instead of awarding the husband money for her death, they ought to replace her with her intellectual equivalent...maybe a nice koi fish or something.

    Makes me wonder what the legal ramifications would be if a radio show had a "shoot yourself in the head the most times with actual bullets" contest.

    I don't think the radio station should be held responsible. She wasn't forced or coerced into chugging water, the liability should fall on her for being a dumb ass.

    Then we can assume that the DJs had the IQ of freeze dried brine shrimps, as they held the competition in the first place. Just as responsible if any person in a position of authority would hand out electric power tools and automatic weapons to children.

    Let's just agree that all involved really needed to pick up a book for once in their miserable lives instead of watching Jerry Springer or whatever Americans watch.

    Radio DJ's aren't exactly at the cutting edge of intelligent occupations. We can either assume that they are either A). dumb asses holding a contest for dumb asses, or B). Trying to see how many shitheads they can get to kill themselves for material possessions.

    Nope. Radio DJ's rarely possesses the ability to think on many levels. However, they still are culpable as they used their clout on her.

    The alternative would be that they use the "we're retarded/brain damaged/mentally ill and can't therefore be held accountable"-defense and risks becoming incarcerated indefinitely.

    when your rich great uncle dies, do you spend the money or save it?

    The risk of death was downplayed in a criminal way. The competition wasn't about who drinks 1l of water the quickest, but the most of water.
