Did I mean to post about this yesterday? Yes! Did I? No!
So you're getting it today (Or maybe you've seen it somewhere else.). From Wired News:
"Hans Jørgen Olsen, a 12-year-old Norwegian boy, recently survived a moose attack by feigning death, "just like you learn at level 30 in World of Warcraft."
. . .According to Norwegian site Nettavisen , Hans and his sister apparently enraged one of the local moose (mooses? meese?) during a walk in the forest near their home. After shouting at the gigantic creature to ward it away from his sister, Olsen dropped to the ground."
Lovely. All of the Civilization-lovin' I got in my Junior High School history classes taught me that games can teach real skills. Seems that one Hans Olsen has found this out for himself.
