In the county of Hsinchu, Taiwan, the Taiwanese government has… er had… a top secret radar range to detect incoming Chinese missiles. It’s apparently been unknown to the outside world until Apple’s goofy Maps came along and showed the location of the radar range off as clear as day for all to see. Whoopsie.
After a crazy marathon session of Diablo III, an 18 year old Taiwanese kid keeled over. The man, known as Chuang, played Diablo for 40 hours straight without food or without taking any breaks. What the hell is wrong with east Asian gamers that this kind of thing seems way too common?
There’s lots of really great art out there these days, and then there’s this guy. An art student from Taiwan, who after pissing blood one night, was inspired to create the face of Iron Man out of piss and blood. And the critics love it. Because they would. Because it’s not like there isn’t a metric shit ton of really great art being done these days that they have to fawn all over a guy drawing in his bloody pee.
At an internet cafe in Taiwan, surrounded by 30 other gamers, 33 year old Chen Rong-ru sat dead for 9 hours before anyone noticed. He suffered a heart attack after playing League of Legends for 24 hours straight, while the other players probably bitched about him not laying down enough DOTs or something.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with staying in an awesome Batman themed hotel room, whether you just want to revel in it alone or bring a friend, but for an hourly rate hotel, it’s a little weird. At the Eden hotel in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, you can rent the Batman suite for $50 for three hours to do whatever in. Fighting crime, sitting in the mini Tumbler and making vroom vroom noises… and maybe getting your rocks off with an appreciative Taiwanese hooker.
