He's dead?

Wiitard.

It's just sad that people would do this. Makes me ashamed to be a teenager...

It doesn't say why his father didn't let him play. The kid bought the Wii himself with money from his recent birthday. Why deny him the right to play? Was there ANY reason?

Of course, there's no reason to kill yourself over it, either.

It sucks that he died and I can still see eye to eye over not being able to play but was he banned for life from his Wii? If so I understand if not then thanks for giving anti-gaming some more dirt to trash gamers.

In an example of teenagers taking just about everything on earth much more seriously than necessary, thirteen year old Jake Roberts made a fatal choice to take his own life after an argument with his father and sister. The reason? Jake wanted to play his brand new Wii, acquired with his birthday money (his birthday had been a few days prior). He then retreated to his room, where he was found hanged by his own school uniform tie a few hours later.

No kidding. O_o

If he actually did that then... well I feel sorry for the family but the child was seemingly not very intelligent.

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

She shot forward and my dick flopped out and she said "Who the **** is Steve?"

no, he hanged himself because his parents suck. If you read it, it says his school tie.

That's actually really sad. The description from the Dad started off making it seem like just a normal day and then BAM, hanging child. I think the kid probably didn't know what he was doing, I recon he just wanted attention and went too far by accident.

No, I doubt it as the Daily Mail is an English newspaper and most schools in England have school uniforms.

other schools use ties as well

I highly doubt he'd do that just because of his Wii. There was probably a hell of a load of other stuff that they didn't mention. Maybe he was being bullied as well, or he hated where he lived or something. And to be honest, sounds like a **** father to me, just by reading his quote. No "We'll miss him more than words can describe" or any sentimental **** like that. Just "I would've laughed if I heard about that".

Oh well. I guess it's stuff like this that created the word OWNED!!!

he was 13. pretty sure he knew that hanging himself with a tie would kill him
#30
I don't think that there was much else involved. The kid was a gamer, he wanted Wii, was denied Wii, and in a fit of not thinking it through he killed himself.

Not long before people call him An Hero.

Sorry to double post, unless someone gets in before me, but I found the link to this on 4chan, where the accompanying picture did actually say "An Hero" Let me dig it up.


yes I was on 4chan.

+1 The moment I read this I figured it had to do with something other than just the wii. It doesnt even say he wasnt allowed to play does it?

Fair enough, but i would't bloody kill myself!
I don't think that a teenager with enough cash to buy a wii has real probable cause to kill himself. While he may have been troubled by other things, it just seems like typical teen behaviour (to an extent). Nowadays, all the teenagers who believe they could be independent by 12 get overenraged and depressed. As a member of this generation, i feel deeply saddened.

Does anyone else here want an immediate ban from life on this guy?

After we kill him, i'm going to say:
