People are living more in a virtual world, and they will increasingly do so. The virtual world is more important than the real one, and it's because they either have rejected the real world to veg out in their own worlds or they feel the real world rejected them.

Its true and actually pretty worrying, someone else posted about things that trigger behaviour like this, imagine how virtual people may be living in 10 or maybe 20 years time.

Addicted to Starcraft!?!? I think I just fell in love. lol I'd play for hours and hours every night for about a year straight with my buddies in middle school/high school. That was before I figured out girls. lol Seriously though, anything can become addicting and it doesn't have to be a physical addiction like drugs. Although, I would guess that physical withdrawal symptoms can occur from being addicted to things besides drugs. Clearly, this woman was mentally unstable and as others have said this was a trigger. Such a shame, but I guess we are not robots and because of the nature of DNA and reproduction we are sometimes born with "defects." I would call her's a defect for sure. She probably had the kid by accident, judging by her age and what she did, and wasn't really ready for a kid emotionally. Poor child, he never asked to be born from her. I just find it amazing people can be addicted to such a crappy game. Now, motorcycles or something really fun like Starcraft, but some crappy game makes no sense to me.

P.S. I really posted just to see if my picture worked for my avatar. lol Restoring a CB175! 7k mi all original barn baby!

Wasn't Anonymous suppose to shut FB down by now? They could have saved this child's life by doing so. That's a sad fact.



They never claimed to shut down FB it was just fake videos put up by someone else.

Start keeping track of how many of these such stories come out of Florida. Go back in time and read all the news-making stories about parent-to-child, child-to-parent and spousal murders. Seriously. What's going on in Florida?

Circuit Judge Adrian G. Soud sentenced Tobias to 50 years in prison after hearing several hours of testimony


Tobias told the judge she was suffering from postpartum depression, but wants to go back to the good person she was before the killing.

"I hate myself for what I did, but not for who I am," she said.

Somehow, to me, 50 years just doesn't seem long enough.

Reminds me of the Korean couple who neglected their child to a slow death while they were at an internet cafe for hours straight playing online games.

It says the baby was crying while she was playing, if she was doing anything else she would have still did it. I still dont see how shaking a baby would shut it up...... Just put earphones on

So true...i keep telling my kids to stand up straight as much as they can, i'm sure we will see a rise in kyphosis (hunching of the back) in kids by the time they're 30.

I was actualy amazed and proud of my daughter today when she looked up and said that she was going to sell her Blackberry and get a more basic phone, her thinking is if she doesn't have BBM and all the gadgets on it, she won't spend so much time on it. Quite impressive for a 14 year old in modern day society.
