Following 21 straight days in an Internet bar in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, a homeless man surnamed Wu was evicted on November 6.
Police woke him up at the computer desk where he had been sitting undetected and online continuously since October 16.
Wu, 27, who was able to get online by „accidentally“ decoding the password system, said he was afraid if he turned the power off he would not be able to get the free chance again. Therefore, he essentially camped out at the computer and ate discarded leftover food left by other gamers in order to survive.
News reports did not specify why it took the Internet bar employees and manager 21 days to notice Wu.
