Playing that stupid game may now be beneficial...
Moose trick:A 12-year old boy in Leksvik, in central Norway, saved his sister's life - thanks to something he learned from playing a video game called World of Warcraft. Hans Jorgen Olsen and his sister were walking in the woods in Leksvik when they encountered an angry moose. Olsen knew what to do. He taunted the moose to get it to move away from his sister, and when the beast started to come toward him instead, Olsen played dead. In the video game, players use the same trick to get monsters away from their team members. Olsen says when he played dead, the moose lost interest and wandered away. "It went really well," he says.
So this Norwegian kid saved his sister by imitating WoW. Great, just great. Whatever works I guess.
It does beg the question: how threatening can a moose actually be?
"Hey, Rocky! Watch me pull a rabbit out of this hat!"
