It was only a matter of time before Avatar killed somebody, and it's finally happened. Which is exactly why I haven't gone to see it. Well, that and I've been banned from all the local theaters for
public indecency excessive awesomeness and killer style.
According to AFP, the 42-year-old cinemagoer, surnamed Kuo, had a history of high blood pressure and suffered a stroke while watching the film in in the northern city of Hsinchu (Taiwan).
Emergency room doctor Peng Chin-chih told AFP: "It's likely that the over-excitement from watching the movie triggered his symptoms."
The China Times reported that the incident represented "the first death linked to watching James Cameron's science-fiction epic".
Interesting, China, but if it was actually Avatar that killed him then how do you explain THIS GUNSHOT WOUND?! Dum dum dum!
