Wee for a Wii???

Bec sent me a link to this story. This has got to be one of the most bizarre things that I have read in a while:

A twenty-eight year old Sacramento mother of three has died of water intoxication after taking part in a local radio competition to win a Wii console.

Jennifer Strange was found dead on Friday at her home after taking part in a contest named “Hold your wee for a Wii” at the studios of radio station KDND 107.9. The competition involved drinking large quantities of water, with the last person to go to the toilet winning a Wii console – currently out of stock in most of North America.

It just makes you wonder why people put themselves at such risk. I myself couldn't last long drinking that much water. Was it really worth it?

I watched it earlier this evening at our local news. I feel sorry for her. I never thought someone could die because of water intoxication. It's an eye opener.

I read about that the other day. Man, some people will do really stupid things.
