Those Hong Kongians must live in a crazy future world, because now even their vices are next-generation. Some truly serious gamer dad over there, upon learning that he couldn’t bring his 7-year-old daughter into an arcade, left her on the sidewalk for an hour while he played. He then came out and relocated her to an adjacent restaurant, bought her a drink, and went back inside for three more hours.
He only stopped when the police, alerted by the restaurant staff, came to arrest him – at which point he offered for his defense: “I have to play video games.” One day, that will be a valid excuse – and probably in Hong Kong first of all. But for now, the only thing it got him was 120 hours of community service for child neglect.
