Why I Quit Playing Video Games...

...and took up shooting real guns instead. Some dude in Shanghai stabbed another dude after he sold a "dragon sabre" that they won while playing some dame called "Legend of Mir 3."

Virtual economies, such as those in Everquest, Ultima Online, and other MMORPGs are interesting labs for the testing of economic theory, and pretty damn libertarian. That is, until someone stabs you.

Methinks that this is a place where the criminal law has not caught up with the rest of the world. With regard to the stealing of the fictional "dragon sabre," that is. I'm pretty sure that stabbing a dude is illegal. Even in China.

Yours truly,
