Rumortoid-San: Wii emits a frequency that attracts cockroaches?

Rumortoid-San: Wii emits a frequency that attracts cockroaches? photo



So far this is just a theory, but it's something that's beginning to come under investigation. Apparently, Japanese entertainment magazine BARKS has alleged that a powered-on Wii emits a sound frequency which falls right into the range to which cockroaches are attracted. This could lend itself to a few uninvited roommates for gamers who are too busy waggling their remotes to invest some time in a little basic housekeeping.  

I wouldn't run to the store and drop a week's pay on insecticide just yet, and please keep in mind that this is just a theory, and one that is likely to be debunked eventually. Although, if you find yourself trying out that new Wii Fit Board and hear some crunching under it as you lean one way or the other, don't say I didn't warn you.

Something's off about this SpyParty video

What is going on in this SpyParty video? I've never seen a murder, but is this what happens? Because it seems that the reactions of the witnesses would be more scarring than the murder itself. Or maybe this is just what it's like when a developer's willing to poke fun at its game's bugs.more
