Oh, dear. We’ve all been there: you’re playing your favorite game online, and then WHAM-O~! you lose your Internet connection. The usual course of action is to mutter “Gosh darn it” to your self, then go about your business. An unusual course of action is to grab a knife, then stab a random person walking in the street. Apparently that has happened, yes.

An 18-year-old kid was playing StarCraft when his Internet connection dropped out. Then, in a fit of rage, he grabbed a knife, then ran out onto the street, where a 15-year-old girl was walking home from a party. You see where this is going.

Yes, the 18-year-old stabbed the 15-year-old. You know, because he was angry that his Internet connection dropped.

Thankfully, the girl is about as good as can be expected, with none of the injuries being life-threatening.

Oh, all of this went down in Sweden. I probably should have mentioned that in the beginning.

What’s going to happen to the crazy kid? He’s been sentenced to psychiatric care, and prosecutors are looking to charge him with attempted murder.

Again, friends, when your Internet connection dies, your best course of action is just to curse up a storm, and not bring physical violence onto random, innocent people.
