If you were to make a list of countries most likely to produce a story like this, Russian would have to be close to the top of that list.
“According to reports Pavel Mateev, 15, went into his yard Monday morning before he “switched on a chainsaw and sawed off his own head.”
What horrific thing caused the little Ivan to take his life in the most Sawyer Family approved method imaginable?
“Russian media cited local sources saying that he was addicted to a computer game that his single mother had bought for him.
State owned Russian television channel NTV reported: “A teenager from Tomsk region committed suicide after he lost a computer game.”
It is unclear what computer game he was playing, but a female source said Pavel spent hours at his computer and that his “nerves gave in after a game”.
That’s right. He lost a video game. Apparently the kid took sore losing to another stratosphere. I have seen my brother’s son lose a video game and become so enraged he thew down the controlled, screamed and would have shot the TV screen had I been foolish enough to hand him a gun. Youtube is full of videos of teens losing their ever loving minds in a fit of rage over losing. Chainsaw to your own head though takes the cake. Something sure smells fishy about this story.
The local office of the Russian Investigative Committee gave no further details on Pavel’s case except to confirm a criminal case had been opened into incitement to suicide.
Russia has seen several so-called “death groups” allegedly incite children and teenagers to take their own lives whilst playing online games.
I’m not a stable genius or Sherlock Holmes , but I think it is a reaosnable thing to assume maybe the kid didn’t off himself. On the other hand, if he did really chainsaw his own head off that is sickly impressive. Likely some one willing to chainsaw their own head off over losing a video game wasn’t ever going to make it into society anyway With an attitude like that, he never would have gotten ahead
