I take it you learned your lesson?

i did not, in fact it only toughened me up.

@thebudgetgamer - So you're still a cord puller? Fortunately newer consoles pause the game when the controller isn't connected, but it still sounds annoying as hell :)

To get a blood clot, you'd need to be standing still for a very long time. Unless you stay in the same position, you don't risk anything no matter how long you play. Most people change position while gaming, go to the bathroom or take a snack.

Even playing for days straight, the only way it could kill you is if your body is depraved of sleep for playing so long.

The 20 years old guy and the 13 years old girl who died recently probably had medical problems. Especially the guy, he was overweight, if not obese, that doesn't help at all.
