Boy Fries Himself with Hot Hot Xbox 360

Dumb, dumb, dumb. Apparently, a 14 year-old North Carolina boy was almost killed trying to keep his Xbox 360 from overheating. According to local news, the boy's mother found her son unconscious after he attempted to submerge the console in a pan of water. (Xbox 360)

that was funny. I wonder what Microsoft has to say. I bet in 10 years we will be watching stuff like this in America's Funniest Home Videos

[edit] of course only sick people will find it funny if the kid wasn't okay

Disappointing. But I suppose everyone can be a bit more cheerful now because we know he's safe and sound now, to some degree. It's okay to kid around, I guess, as a sigh of relief that he's okay.

Typical Xbot IQ there: put the electric item in some water to cool it off.

Can you say Natural Selection? The genepool needs chlorination

You mean like the PS3 fanboy who put black electrical tape on all the vents so dust doesn't get in there?

a kid spending 400+ bucks on a console only to find widespread hardware failures, desperation sets in faster than in an adult
MoonDust  +   2582d ago

Next thing he will do is replace the brakes on his car with a walls. 150-0 in 0 secs.

"Thankfully, when the ambulance arrived, the boy had regained his senses."

Does that include common sense?

"...he attempted to submerge the console in a pan of water."
Seriously. He should have been taken out of the human gene pool.
beavis4play  +   2582d ago
yep, he should have been culled out of the herd.

I didn't know if this would get approved.
But I had to try posting it.

this is what happens when you combine all the stupidity and the paranoia of the internet with an impressionable young mind.
beavis4play  +   2582d ago
his level of stupidity didn't help the situation.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   2582d ago
Lets just been thankful the guy don't take any stupid tips of making a circle of salt around the console (yes, I already have heard this one... pathetic, don't you think?).

Can you see it? Water, salt and electricity... This remembers me July 4th!

Why would the Mart care?
What happens when you drop a PS3 in the water? Same thing.

After reading this article...
I wonder if bladestar or THE MART are feeling all right. Hang in there guys, you live you learn.
mikeslemonade  +   2582d ago
Blame the 360 for being an electronic device. It wasn't the boys fault. First the red rings, the scratch discs, and now this. Not buying the 360 ever.
00  +   2582d ago
wow
are people that stupid.
BloodySinner  +   2582d ago
Hahahahahahaha...
Just. Damn. Funny.

WHILE
my PS3 is doing my loundry, my 360 is doing the cooking.

Hahahahahah
Hardcore.... Stupid and electronics dont mix. They should restrict the kid to building blocks and legos.

I don't think I have laughed so hard in my entire life!!! By the end of that story my stomach was tight and harder than a rock from laughing, I could barely breathe and I was crying. This is one of the stupidest things I have ever seen someone do. He's FOURTEEN! Didn't you learn when you were 5 that sticking forks in sockets is bad? Seriously are you MENTAL!?
mikeslemonade  +   2582d ago
Now if the kid bought a PS3 and attempted to throw it in water, the PS3 would rise above like it does in the commercial. PS3 is smart and 360 is not. 360 just jumps into the water like nothing and nearly kills the owner.
darkvenom  +   2582d ago
OooK....
this kid is 14 years old,and should have common sense WATER+ELECTRICITY= DISASTER.what a num nut.
ShiftyLookingCow  +   2582d ago
this thread is full of brilliant people. none of you did anything stupid when you were 14? This kid was desperate for some reason(maybe his 360 red ringed) and lost his common sense.

[edit] nope that is no excuse, then again at least I have done inexcusable stupid things when I was that age not the same magnitude

That's an excuse?
Color me stupid, but when I was 14 I knew common sense. This kid shows stupidity at its finest. I only wonder WHERE this kid lived. I'd like to pull some stats on their edjumication system and see how them youngins be teached.

In all seriousness it's good that he didn't die, maybe now he'll learn what stupidity is and not do anything this stupid again. Then again, could be wishful thinking.
