Take a look at what happens when human game addiction is stronger than the desire to survive in this harsh world. These young gamers were photographed in one of the computer clubs in the Philippines during the strongest typhoon. Despite the risk of electric shock, these boys initially refused to leave the Internet cafe, Metro reports.
The video was filmed by Sio Samson, the owner of a cafe in the city of Cainta, Rizal province.
“We didn’t know there would be a flood that day, so when I saw them, I immediately took action and told them that I needed to move the equipment away from the water,” said the owner of the cafe.
After that, the gamers ended the session in the multiplayer game and left the flooded room.
Fortunately, all the electrical cables in the computer club were above water level and plugged into outlets at a height above your head.
It is worth noting that more than 80,000 people fled their homes in the Philippines due to severe weather caused by the southwestern monsoon, amplified by Typhoon Fabian (internationally known as “Ying-fa”).
Typhoon Fabian caused devastation across parts of the Philippines, where homes were flooded, thousands of people were evacuated, and disaster destroyed agricultural land and crops.
The storm slowly headed to the East China Sea but continued to intensify with the monsoon maintaining heavy downpours across Luzon island.
Dozens of people were later killed when the typhoon struck China and caused severe floods.
Terrifying footage shows passengers trapped on the subway in the central city of Zhengzhou with brown floodwater up to their shoulders.You can find similarities between the behavior of children in the computer club and the behavior of politicians around the planet in the example of Earth Overshoot Day.
We still borrow from nature while playing our computer games.
