A boy who was desperate to "power up" after watching "Transformers 2" started
drinking gasoline in emulation of the mechanical heroes of the film, suffering permanent
brain damage as a result.
The boy, a 14-year-old schoolboy living in China’s Sichuan area, apparently enjoyed good
grades & was good with machines(maybe he thought he was to well programed to be a
human?), perhaps explaining his fascination with Transformers.
His parents running a shop selling lighters, he found himself with ready access to lighter fluid,
which he began covertly snuffing, in spite of being caught several times. Soon he progressed
to filching gasoline in bottles and using the vapours to get high with. All this apparently took its
toll on his cognitive faculties, & soon enough he hatched upon a scheme based on his viewing
of Transformers 2. Seeing that his mechanical heroes gained power from fuel, he too resolved
to try this, & began stealing fuel in mineral water bottles, which he would drink habitually.
Eventually his theft came to light, and he was taken to see a doctor, where it was discovered
that he could no longer perform simple sums and appeared to have developed a severe mental disability.
Doctors found him to have become addicted to gasoline, the lead content of which entered his
body, causing brain damage. He was subsequently hospitalized in order to curb his addiction.
When asked why he imbibed the fuel, he said only "Because I wanted to power up!"
DAMN! doesn't this remind you of a story years ago, where a boy wanted to fly like Superman
& went splat! All over the ground. Maybe for every fiction movie/series, they should put a
warning. "Don't freaking try this at home punks!"
Plus: Akihabara's desperate effort maid cafe
Wouldn't "you" the guy be outrageously happy if your waitress to serve you only
Yeah! You would! Waitresses at the event appeared in only a T-shirt and striped panty,
only to promote a vibrating oshiri gimmick, the fabulous "Shaking Hip"
DAMN! Japan & their weired yet successful ideas huh...
quote of the day!
What do I want to be when I grow up? Alive.
