    Saw this story and I thought I would add it in...so anyone in Thailand...watch what ya drink :)

    Drugs 'added to gamers' drinking water'

    A Thai newspaper claims amphetamines are being added to drinking water at 24-hour computer game shops to keep people playing for longer.

    The Thai News says police suspect the practice is going on although no arrests have been made.

    They searched a number of games shops after a 22-year-old died from heart failure during an all-night computer game in Chiang Mai.

    Police say Thanet Sommoi's friends told them he was addicted to Counter Strike.

    They said investigators believed Thanet developed tension and fatigue after playing the game for hours and that his heart eventually failed.

    Y'know, there are a few companies that market bottled water with caffeine added, I guess for those who want caffeine but don't like coffee or tea. Now, whether or not the water that the 'gamers' are drinking fall into that category remains to be seen. Gee, what other 'fingers' can we point in the direction of video games and gamers?:rolleyes:
