Taiwanese man dies after 3 months in Cyber Cafe

A change from the drumbeat of politics....

A Taiwanese man who spent three months in an internet cafe following a row with his missus finally succumbed to a fatal combination of fatigue, lack of sleep, cigarette smoke, and instant noodles last week when he suffered a heart attack, according to Dutch news site NRC.

Hsu Tai-yang, 37, turned up at the RS Cyber Cafe in Tamsu, close to Taipei, on 8 March. According to the cafe's owner, he camped out there until his untimely demise because he "didn't want to go home", as the unnamed proprietor explained to China Times.
