“They should maybe donate that Wii to someone who really deserves it. Someone who wouldn’t drink seven quarts of water for a video-game box.”

    On January 12, 2007, Jennifer Strange, a 28-year-old woman and a mother of 3, from Rancho Cordova, California, was found dead in her home by her mother hours after trying to win one of Nintendo’s Wii game consoles in KDND 107.9 “The End” radio station’s “Hold Your Wee for a Wii” contest, which involved drinking large quantities of water without urinating. Because of the name of the contest, some believe that not urinating is related to hyponatremia (a condition related to water intoxication). This is untrue; this type of water intoxication is caused by excessive and rapid consumption of (sodium-free) water. No criminal charges were pressed. The FCC has launched its own investigation to determine if the station violated the terms of its operating license.
