Avatar causes brain explosion

Stick with porn, it's safer:

A 42-year-old Taiwanese man with a history of high blood pressure has died of a stroke likely triggered by over-excitement from watching the blockbuster Avatar in 3D, a doctor says.

This is apparently the first death directly attributable to the movie. It won't be the last -- Avatar viewers are coming out of theatres depressed and suicidal. Many viewers asserting that imagining they are Na'vi makes them blue.

Update: Since there were other things I needed to do at the time this was originally posted in haste. I have therefore edited it slightly and added a link.

I saw the film last week and was not that impressed with it. I felt the story was "Dances with Wolves" just with people in blue living in a tree rather than Native Americans on horseback in teepees. I can't say I felt suicidal but a friend I was with found it very depressing, she said the moral of the story was you fight violence with violence. I've heard other friends comment similarly. As for winning Oscars with this film, it wouldn't be my choice, but who knows?!
