Good for him! I've actually enjoyed Evony before, although it took too much time to get good at. Either way, I'm glad he was OK!

I guess you know what to do when your missus have been complaining you haven't been helping out with the chores lately and spending too much time playing MMOs.

It seems that when he is playing Evony he is paying attention to the toaster. :)

@Tempes Magus Yeah, I'm going to assume that the wife was out or something when this happened. Otherwise there is some 'splainin to do.

Also, I need to find a wife.

He is disabled not a child. What makes you think he should have a 24 hour baby sitter?

I'd rather have my house burn down than admit to playing Evony.

@notinterested
You obviously don't understand what it's like living with a disabled person. My brother is 32 years old and has cerebral palsy - my parents would NEVER leave him in the house unattended just because of the fire risk, as he wouldn't be able to escape on his own. If they both need to go out they call me to go sit with him, just to be in the house to make sure he's safe in case the worse happened.

It's not a case of treating disabled people as if they were children (though a lot of disabled people are emotionally immature, so that can be a valid comparison) - it's a case of making sure they're safe, because they're a lot more vulnerable than the rest of us - in fact more vulnerable than a child in my brother's case as he lacks mobility.

Bob's age is immaterial - if he lacks mobility (which he obviously does, due to his muscular dystrophy) then he should not have been left unattended just in case this very situation occurred.

You watch too much TV. Welcome to reality 95% of the world cant afford the type of care he should have.

Anyone else thing Bob's wife is a bit of a tool? He has muscular dystrophy and can't even move to reach a phone or leave the house. Hard to see how he could "pay attention to anything around the house" for example.
