    Boy Saves Sister from Moose Attack with Skills Learned in Warcraft Video Game


    This 12 year-old Norwegian boy saved his sister and himself from a moose attack using skills he picked up in the online role playing game 'World of Warcraft.'

    Hans Jørgen Olsen and his sister got into a spot of trouble when they encroached on the territory of one of these antlered cold weather staples (otherwise known as a moose). When the beast went on the offensive, Hans knew the first thing he had to do was taunt it so that it would leave his sister alone and she could run to safety. "Taunting" is a move one uses in World of Warcraft to get monsters off of the less-well-armored team members.

    Once he was a target, Hans remember another skill he'd picked up at level 30 in 'World of Warcraft' -- he feigned death. The moose lost interest in the inanimate Hans and wandered off into the woods. When he was safely alone Hans ran back home to share his tale of video game-inspired survival.

    Make fun of video games all you want, but if one can teach you a skill that saves your (and your sister's) life, then we'd say that was a video game worth playing.

    I don't know. He could have just as easily died from the experience. Good on him though for surviving.

    Who says the survival tree for Hunters is crap? Pox on them.

    Too bad this game will never teach him how to get laid. By the time he will be interested, this game will have died. So, play on brotha man!

    Im not sure about that, I read a story about a year ago about some chick that traded sex in the real world for some flying horse in the game... so there is hope for him.

    Heh, great story. Did he kick his sister out of his group afterwards for being a noob? Maybe she wasn't spec'd right?

    Other good uses for WoW:

    -The CD makes a great coaster.
    -Stirring up a **** storm at its mere mention in any other MMO.
    -Eliminating altogether those pesky promiscuous advances of the opposite sex.
    -The "Shatner the Shaman" and "Mr. T the Warhawk" commercials were pretty funny. Can't Youtube while at work, maybe someone else can link them.

    Good on the little dork,,, but maybe he should have been carrying a rifle and practicing his hunting skills if he is going to be out in the wilderness, instead of engaging in some life-sucking video game.

    My sentiments exactly but at least someone else found a use for it.
