Defense of the Ancients in the Flood

I think pictures of gamers in the flood are becoming viral in the Philippines, where I’m currently based. First you’ve got someone playing Left 4 Dead:


And a bunch of people playing Defense of the Ancients:


Obvious fakes? Well, here’s what I think: the flooding levels in both pictures are high enough that wall sockets would be submerged. Even if somehow the gamers are drawing power from a wall socket located higher than usual, other sockets exposed to water would necessitate shutting down power—to prevent any overloads.

Here’s more definitive “proof”: look at how still the water is. No one playing on a computer would keep so still so as to not cause any waves in the water.

    Never mind if it’s a fake or not. Who in their right mind will play in knee-deep flood anyway? :p
