Nightmare Fuel: 15 Year Old Kid Playing Hide And Seek Decided To Stash Himself In A Shipping Container - He Promptly Fell Asleep And Was Found Alive Six Days Later In a Different Country
Playing all sorts of games with your friends and worrying about nothing else is one of the best things about growing up as a kid. Bills? Basically a made up thing your parents bring up when you can't get that new video game or baseball bat. That crippling realization that everything is pointless and we all die one day? Waiting for you way down the road, but not any time soon. Nope, those were the days where beating your friends in games like wiffle ball and man-hunt was all that mattered.
For us a game of man-hunt (what you call hide-and-seek to convince yourself you're more mature) always ended up being the main event once it became a little later in the evening. This was our PG version of Hunger Games before that even became a thing. The thing with our New Jersey version of man-hunt is that we kept the perimeter limited to the block we lived on. Turns out in Bangladesh these kids are playing hide and seek in a shipping yard? Well ya know what happened? Some kid decided to win and hid in a shipping container. He hid so well that he got bored, fell asleep, and remained unfound for six days. The other issue? When he was found it was 2,300 miles away in another country.
A 15-year-old boy who locked himself in a shipping container during a game of hide-and-seek has been found a week later in a different country, per Malaysian news agency Bernama and the India Times.
The teenage boy has only been identified by his first name Fahim, and was discovered in a shipping container in Malaysia six days after he fell asleep inside the container in the city of Chittagong, Bangladesh on Jan. 11. “The boy was just believed to have entered the container, fell asleep, and found himself here," said Malaysian Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.
Everyone on the internet is saying this kid is the new world champion of Hide-and-Seek. While I'll admit he's very good, I'm not crowning him when you consider Saddam and Osama were hiding in the mountains for months, if not years before we got to them. I'm not fond of those two individuals in the slightest, but we can't ignore how good they were at not being found. But you know what I will call this kid? A hardo. Buddy, they were just playing hide and seek, not get away from Batman
Next thing you know we're opening up a shipping container to find you on the brink of death.
Wanna talk nightmare fuel? Yeah how about being in pitch black darkness with no food or water for almost a week and then when you're miraculously saved you're surrounded by a bunch of people who don't speak your language. It's an absolute prayer he's alive, but there's no telling how traumatized this whole ordeal is gonna leave him. Horrifying.
Hide and seek is such a thing of the past. I'm all in on find-the-duck.
Cannot wait til this is an Olympic sport.
