I read that some one died surfing the internet continuously for 40 Hours.
The 18-year-old identified by only his surname, Chuang, booked a private room at the cafe in Tainan, southern Taiwan, around noon on July 13 and played for nearly two days without eating, the United Daily News broadsheet reported on Tuesday. On July 15, an attendant entered the room in the morning and found Chuang resting on a table. After the attendant woke him, he stood, took a few steps and then collapsed, the report said. He was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a local hospital.
Police were investigating the cause of death and an autopsy was being carried out, the newspaper reported. They speculated that long hours in a sedentary position created cardiovascular problems for Chuang, the report said.

Oldest Site on the Internet.
On March 15, 1985, Symbolics Computer Corporation made history by registering the first domain name. That year, there were just five websites in existence. Fast forward to today, where there are over 192 million domains registered and more than 2.1 billion users worldwide, mostly based in Asia. Symbolics.com was bought in 2009 and now hosts a bunch of useless-but-interesting Internet facts (including some of the ones I just mentioned)
Longest Domain Name.
Speaking of domain names, one of the silliest Internet Records is for the longest one. Technically, a domain name can have up to 63 characters (not including sub-domains or suffixes). Sure, there are loads of stupid ones – technically the “longest” domain name on record is http://www.thelongestdomainnameintheworldandthensomeandthensomemoreandmore.com/ – followed closely by http://www.abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijk.com/ – a free email service for annoying people. But in our book (and in Guinness’) the winner is Llanfairpwllgw-yngyllgogerychwyrndrobwll-Llantysiliogogogoch.com which is the website of an actual single-word town in Wales. Try saying (or typing) that ten times fast
Divorce has become an occasion of Joy to be celebrated.
Divorce is a painful process and it affects the people seriously as the aftermath is painful whatever be the culture one is in,I presume.
But throwing a party for a successful Divorce(?) is some thing I can never imagine.
After all the world is full of things and events one can and can not imagine.
” Rihanna threw a “just divorced” party at Soho House for her best friend Katy Perry in New York last week to mark the end of her 14-month marriage to Russell Brand. The girls were treated to gold leaf manicures using 24-carat gold paint costing 1,500 pounds a bottle.
“It was a light-hearted way of getting Katy to cheer up a bit after the past few months of messiness,” a leading daily has quoted a source as saying.
“Rihanna laid on magnums of champagne and kept the shots flowing while the girls had their gold manis,” the source added.
