Why was there a 16-hour Call of Duty marathon in a junior high school cafeteria?

In this day and age I find it appaling that not everyone can see Darwinian principles in action all around them.

This is why when I drink liter upon liter of anything I make sure it's beer.

You think that's bad?

I remember going on an over 24-hour Star Wars Battlefront binge with some of my friends just a few months ago.

So much Pizza and Starbucks I'm surprised I wasn't on a Fark headline.

Pretty sure the joke was about only being able to handle a 16-hour marathon, whereas poop socking is pretty much a PC gamer term.

Dear god. Please tell me poop socking involves cloth and isn't like the term 'gloved' somehow relating to the anus/sphincter?

yes, so named because you aren't going to leave your computer for anything, including number 2. if you are really interested in that other thing, try pink socking.

What kid can't go 16 hours without even one energy drink, let alone 4 liters worth?

Is this a Daily Fail BS article?
 
2014-03-21 10:59:07 AM
16 hours? What a lightweight. If he'd stuck with non hyped up energy drinks he could have gone for at least double that. Energy drinks are only good for very brief spikes of energy; attempting anything long term with them is waste of effort they aren't made for that.
 
2014-03-21 11:02:12 AM
I would have rage quitted long before 16 hours were up!

(I usually get about an hour in before that happens)
 
2014-03-21 11:04:41 AM
Back in my day, 36 hour D&D binges were fueled by Mountain Dew, Jolt cola and Cheetos, kids today sheesh.

They were probably playing on PC which means they were glitching and using aim bots. No need to rage quit when you don't die and can get a head shot from across the map with a pistol.

He eventually woke up and is expected to make a full recovery

My normal routine for farming AA points in EQ was to wake up at 6am on the weekend, set up a camp at Plane of Storm (Bastion of Storms?) and farm that shiat until about 3am every weekend straight. Of course there would be a break for pooping and since I was kiting, I could eat while I used my Nostromo macroed up. That wasn't even considered hardcore, I actually slept, ate, and got up to go to the bathroom or shower.
 
2014-03-21 11:12:14 AM
Umm, wow.  That's like a typical Saturday for me.  Like, admittedly, I'm a loser and all, but, that's like waking up at 9am and playing video games all day, until 1am.

Granted, I'll stop to take a leak/take a pizza out of the oven/grab another drink and take the occasional bathroom break.

I wouldn't even consider it noteworthy.

Maybe because it's mature rated and our schools choose the wrong things to enforce on our precious snowflakes?

hardinparamedic: Wow. The little moron drank himself into a hypertensive crisis. I salute his dedication to keeping my profession employed.


This made me chuckle; I'm a gamer, used to work at a 24hr coffee shop that had a lounge-like atmosphere and a tv customers would hook consoles up to, and I was an EMT for some time...
16 hour is a weak binge, I and some fellows caught about the first 30 hours of the U.S. invasion of Iraq consuming little other than coffee and cigarettes.
Coffee was, is, and always will be my marathon gaming drink of choice.  It's easier to include occasional water with coffee than it is with energy drinks, not to mention coffee will give me an appetite while carbonation will subdue hunger... oh and while both might punish my kidneys, the coffee's helping my colon.

Problem was, the number of kids that started dumping their drunk/stoned/shrooming/tripping/rolling/FSM-knows what else friends off at the cafe rather than at their homes, dorms, or hospitals.. These were usually followed up by the kid that was dumped off coming back on a following occasion and expect a form of sympathetic ear from the barista about how much the bill from the ambulance company was.  Never even once did a single one apologize for the inconvenience and scene they caused.

It's hard to imagine this was 10 years ago and all those kids are in their late 20s/early 30s now...  /shudder

That's one hell of a respawn delay.

There's nothing finer than sniping with a pistol in COD. Be it a revolver with ACOG, or just a MP-433 with muzzle brake, I hear so much vitriol when you can line up a shot and execute a sniper from long range.

Pistols are horrifically, wonderfully, powerful.

My EQ routine involved dying, spending an hour waiting for the boat, falling off the boat, then spending another hour waiting for the next one. Then running to my corpse, looting it, and getting killed again.

Also: traveling from Kelethin all the way across Antonica pre-Kunark on my first character to kill aviaks, and falling into the chasm next to the pass from Highkeep because I was working alcohol tolerance and swayed off has to be one of my most wtf-lol memories.

I've been doing the same thing in Titanfall, just to piss off the snipers with their awful aim and reaction time.  I enjoy the idea they see me switch from a carbine to a single shot pistol and head shot them from a decent way away while they're frantically missing their shots.  :D

Shiat we used to do lock-ins at the local LAN place. 15 hour gaming sessions, rewards for winning usually being bottles of Bawls energy drink. There would be times I was still shaking when I was picked up, only to seriously crash when I got home.

Yup.  I remember a QuakeCon at which I drank so many bottles of Bawls I was convinced I was going to have a heart attack (I probably was), and I was young and in good shape, then.  If I had half that many now I'd drop dead immediately.

4 liters? Holy fark.

CSB:
One Mardi Gras in New Orleans like 15 or 16 years ago (when Red Bull first hit) I did like 5 Jaegerbombs. I just remember stumbling back to my hotel room around 6 in the morning, lying down in bed thinking I should get some sleep. But instead I lay there wide away and vibrated at like 500mhz until sometime around noon when the caffeine and sugar finally wore off. Learned my lesson right there.

I once drank 3 Sobe No Fear's in 10 minutes. Spent an hour shaking and pale, then just got really really energetic. Thats 1.5 litres.

Then have had as many as 5 litres in a single day, but that's after slowly building up my tolerance. Was a fun addiction. Cost more than smoking, probably shortened my life a hell of a lot, and the only way I was able to stop was because I thought I was dying each time I drank one, getting heart palpitations. Though ECG said I wasn't damaged. Also, that was 4 months ago. Who knows how long I'll stay off successfully. Xyience became my poison of choice, sugar free.

In short, amatuer.

If you need 4 liters of energy drink to stay awake for 16 hours at 14 there is something wrong with you.
 
2014-03-21 12:54:14 PM
16 hours?  Thats not a binge.  I camped jboots one time for 84 hours strait and only needed cheap store brand coffee and a carton of camels.  And I didnt even need the damn things.  You console pissants arent even worth the ball sweat of the laptop peasant who I allow to wipe my ass.  You make me sick.
 
2014-03-21 12:55:23 PM
Oh, on the subject of energy drink type things: Once chugged a 2-liter of Jolt before a Doom party. Holy hell was I reacting fast. Seemingly at least. Couldn't aim for shiat tho.

This was back in late 99 or early 2000 I believe, it was a drop.  So they stopped putting people through that eventually I heard.  Mainly because stupid crazy people were camping out there in groups ready to kill each other for days on end for something that only seemed to show up once every 12 to 16 hours.  Pretty sure a few people killed each other in RL over it.  Back in the day.  Gaming is not what it used to be.  I suppose nothing is.
