Father hires hitmen to kill son's virtual character
How do you get your mooching kid to quit playing video games? A father in China came up with a clever solution. His son, 23-year-old Xiao Feng, scored poor grades in high school because of his gaming addiction, and things didn't get any better after he graduated and wouldn't stick with any jobs. So dad reportedly hired "virtual assassins" to kill Feng every time he logged in to his favorite online games, hoping it would compel his son to finally put down the controller. Feng was quoted as saying that he's not addicted to games — he just hasn't bothered getting a job yet because he's waiting for the right one to come along.
