Can't go 16 hours without that much caffeine?  I blame Norwegian socialism for producing such a little wuss.

That's some fine parental oversight, right there. Sixteen hours playing video games. Yessirree.

I love Call of Duty (but cannot stand the multilayer, too many hacker/cheaters) but I get bored after a few hours at most.

Even when I was a kid and playing Nintendo and Sega Genesis, the most I could do is about 4-6 hours with breaks.

I imagine it wasn't just the caffeine that did him in. That much fluid in general was probably what caused the kidney failure.

as well as whatever else was in that "energy" drink.

You're correct, grandson can do 16 hours playing Call of Duty standing on his head.
