Playing World of Warcraft could save your sisters life. After typing /played in game, you see you have spent close to a year of real time on a single game. Before you go jump off a bridge, or die from not eating or drinking after 4 straight days of gaming, there’s something to be learned from WoW.
I read this on “Coffee News” (a small free weekly news paper thingy) whilst eating sushi.
A 12-year old boy in Leksvik, in central Norway, saved his sister’s life – thanks to something he learned from playing a video game called World of Warcraft. Hans Jorgen Olsen and his sister were walking in the woods in Leksvik when they encountered an angry moose. Olsen knew what to do. He taunted the moose to get it to move away from his sister, and when the beast started to come toward him instead, Olsen played dead. In the video game, players use the same trick to get monsters away from their team members. Olsen says when he played dead, the moose lost interest and wandered away. “It went really well,” he says.
Below is a reenactment of that day.

HAHA SO funny, ive played alot of wow, maybe i can find a practical use for it yet!!
While funny … if you’ve crossed a cow and her babies … just like a bear… You are likely a dead man.
I still can’t believe people play wow …. RIFT … that is all.
That’s great! On the other hand, how many lives has that game ruined?!
Good point, but it was funny to hear a good story.
Thanks for taking time for sharing this article; it was excellent and very informative. Though you make some very fascinating points, you’re going to have to do more than bring up a few things that may be different than what we’ve already heard. Continue with the great work on the site. Thank you.
Nice! but i did not run home afterwards i continued to school and btw that feign death is bullshit the reporter wrote just to make it intersting and to scar me for life -,-. but it was funny to watch this.
This really you HANS? It logs your ip from Normay. Did you just stumble upon my blog post?
So the reporters made this into a bit more then it was? Did you just scare the moose away or what? Here in Canada the moose can get really aggressive when in RUT (breeding with other moose)
