Killer Internet

Internet brought boon, as well as curse for some who died or is suffering.
A list of deaths that the use of internet has caused.

* 1996: Sharon Lopatka, an internet entrepreneur from Maryland allegedly solicited a man via the Internet to torture and kill her for the purpose of sexual gratification. Her killer, Robert Fredrick Glass, was convicted of voluntary manslaughter for the homicide.

* 2003: Brandon Vedas died of a drug overdose while engaged in an Internet chat, as shown on his webcam.

* 2003: A Girl in Kathmandu(NEPAL) brutally stabbed by a stalker whom she met online and started dating.

* 2005: 28-year-old South Korean, Lee Seung Seop, collapsed of fatigue and died after playing Starcraft for almost 50 consecutive hours in an Internet cafe.

* 2005: 17-year-old teenager, Joshua Anson commits suicide after posting a suicide notice on his myspace page.

* 2007: Jennifer Strange, a 28-year-old woman from Sacramento, died of water intoxication while trying to win a Wii console in a KDND 107.9 “The End” radio station’s “Hold Your Wee for a Wii” contest, which involved drinking large quantities of water without urinating. She placed second in the contest.

* 2007: Kevin Whitrick, a 42-year-old man committed suicide by hanging himself live on a webcam during an internet chat session.

* 2007: A 30 year old Chinese man died of exhaustion after playing online games for 3 days nonstop

and if you think carefully and try to stand on musicians or movie directors shoe, Internet killed them too. That's how they think. Lots of music and movie sharing online is making them loose big share on the market.

Mangal, I'll let you know very soon, cos i forgot the name of the girl, and she was killed by someone whom she met online, dated and that guy purposed her but she refused. And, on her way to school oneday early in the morning, the guy stabbed him to death. I saw her pictures in news when that incident happened near chakrapath,basundhara area of kathmandu .

Prashant Tamang -A Nepalese in Indian Idol 3

CONGRATULATION !!!! PRASHANT FOR BEING INDIAN IDOL Here in US, we don't have Sony channel, may be there is but the region where i am, we don't have. Whatever ... am glad to hear that PRASHANT became an INDIAN IDOL. Update(Sept,12 2007): Prashant Tamang in Boudha Prashant Tamang is becoming sensation day by day as the final decisive day is approaching nearer and nearer. For his support, lots of people are convincing people to vote for him. People are relating his victory with nation's pride which i don't like.

Yesterday, it was no moon day and i was lighting butterlamps in front of BoudhaNath stupa and suddenly i saw, there is huge banner of Prashant Tamang.

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
