We've all heard about Wii related damage to property and people, but I think my case is perhaps a little different. If it wasn't for the fact that the inevitable outcome would be for every Wiimote sold from this date to be encased in an inertia-dampening field and under no circumstances be actually used by a person then I would …
Have some personal responsibility
Not so much "Wii broke my ribs" as "I broke my ribs because I'm chronically inept at playing simple games". Could have happened to you playing real sports.
You have to have pretty poor coordination to punch yourself in the rib while making tennis movements???????????? <_<
How the hell....
can anyone punch themselves in the ribs with enough force to break them? Sounds like a load of bull to me.
No really, he did crack a rib…
I am married to this 'chronically inept' Wii owner and I can confirm that he really did crack a rib with what may have been the most enthusiastic (but granted, inept) forehand ever delivered. He has also hit the living room lampshade several times. I am only glad that he doesn’t play real tennis as the damage he could do wielding a racket as a weapon could be much, much worse – even in the great outdoors (I wouldn’t let him play in the house of course)!
News of this ridiculous injury has been shared with the rest of the world in all good humour as his peers have laughed and guffawed and held their own ribs to stop their sides from splitting (metaphorically of course) and riotously taken the Wii out of his injured state. So lighten up people, it’s only a game after all, :)
