It’s happened to all of us at some point. In the middle of an epic online battle, your internet connection drops – disconnecting you from imminent victory. Most of you would, I’m sure, swear, kick something – and then have a silent awkward cry in to your beer (Just me?).
On particularly psychotic 18 year old Swedish Starcraft fan had just that happen to him; only he did something else.
Instead of just chilling out, listening to some ABBA and munching on a bit of pickled herring, the peeved Swede grabbed a kitchen knife, left his house, and stabbed the first person he saw; a 15 year old girl whose only crime was being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Thankfully despite numerous stab-wounds the girl survived, and will live to listen to ABBA and eat pickled herring. Hooray!
The Starcraft playing nutjob has been sentenced to psychiatric care, where it’s suspected he will listen to ABBA, probably while eating pickled herring.
