Boy Survives Moose Attack Thanks To World Of Warcraft

Hans Jørgen Olsen, a 12-year-old Norwegian boy, recently survived a moose attack by using his "feigning death" skill.

In World of Warcraft, "feign death" is a skill acquired by hunters at level 30 that allows them to take a page from the possum playbook, collapse to the ground, and convince their enemies that they’ve died.

During a walk in the forest near their home, Hans and his sister apparently enraged a local moose. After shouting at the gigantic creature to ward it away from his sister, Olsen dropped to the ground, and presumably his lifebar plummeted to zero.

Who said games are bad for you?  As proven by this story, the skills acquired by playing games could save you life, event if they are fictional skills.
