12-Year Old Boy Rescues Sister From Moose Using World of Warcraft Skills: Our Best Headline Yet

by Lambert Varias

12-year old Norweigan Hans Jørgen Olsen saved himself and his sister from being harmed by an angry moose by emulating skills he learned from World of Warcraft. According to NextNature, the Olsen siblings “trespassed the territory of the moose during a walk in the forest near their home.” When the moose attacked, Hans used the Warrior ability Taunt, i.e. he taunted the moose, thereby allowing his sister to escape. Stage 1 complete.

Next he had to save himself. There’s an ability for that – the Hunter skill Feign Death. Hans lay still on the ground. The moose, exhibiting typical low-level monster behavior, left the boy alone and wandered off. Then Hans transformed into a Death Knight and returned home wearing moose antler headgear. Nah. After the animal left he immediately went home to brag about his accomplishment, which is brag-worthy indeed. You are a noble warrior with a manly name, Hans Jørgen Olsen! Enjoy your Internet fame.

*Edit: as commenter Steam pointed out, this awesome event took place on November 20, 2007, about about three years ago, ruining my joke about Hans transforming into a Death Knight. My apologies for not looking that up when I posted this.*
