Then drops dead

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

A Taiwanese man who spent three months in an internet cafe following a row with his missus finally succumbed to a fatal combination of fatigue, lack of sleep, cigarette smoke, and instant noodles last week when he suffered a heart attack, according to Dutch news site NRC.

Hsu Tai-yang, 37, turned up at the RS Cyber Cafe in Tamsu, close to Taipei, on 8 March. According to the cafe's owner, he camped out there until his untimely demise because he "didn't want to go home", as the unnamed proprietor explained to China Times.

Hsu passed the time playing video games, smoking, chewing betel nuts and scoffing aforementioned instant noodles, before complaining of breathing difficulties and shortly thereafter popping his clogs. ®
