Don't drink the Wii Koolaid

A woman in Sacramento, California died of water intoxication after she participated in a "Hold your Wee for a Wii" contest held at a local radio station. Apparently they were handed 8oz bottles of water every 15 minutes, and the person who could refrain from going to the bathroom the longest was said winner. After she won, she complained of a very bad headache and headed home, where she later passed away.

I myself can't wait to buy a Wii, but after hearing about this, I think Nintendo should be ashamed of themselves for having such a limited amount of these game systems available.

Super Mario Brothers 3 is definately not worth killing yourself over.
