From the You Can't Make This Up Files



A couple in South Korea became so obessesed with their virtual baby, their 3 month old daughter starved to death.  South Korea has one of the most advanced broadband systems in the world, but they are mainly accessible at internet cafes.  The new parents spent the majority of their day caring for their virtual child that they fed their own daughter once a day.  Didn't any of their neighbors hear this baby crying?  Both parents had recently lost their jobs and used the internet baby as way to escape from their problems. 

Sadly, they are not in jail.

Don't they do well baby checkups in South Korea? No American baby could pass the 2 week and 2 month exam while starving to death, I wouldn't think. :-(

I can not even imagine such a thing happening...very sad! And, to think of how many people out there are praying and hoping for a baby...
