What about the relationship between gaming addiction and sudden death?: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/05/26/AR2006052601960.html There seems to be a relationship, even though no "work" is involved...
Karōshi or Karoshi?
The article seems to use both "karōshi" and "karoshi" interchangeably. Is there any reason for that? Andrewski 20:50, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
- Chances are it's simply a case of people contributing to the article who neglect to use the o with the macron. One needs either to copy and paste it or use the character map or an alt code in most cases. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:09, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
The article mentions "Korea" a few times. Is this North Korea or South Korea or both? That should be mentioned, since they are separate countries.
- Just wondreing since when does North Korea report statistics on their work force and whether or not they work overtime or commit suicide from overwork? Angry bee (talk) 03:46, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
I have added an explanation about why the operating system uses the name karoshi, is this good enough?

Karoshi and seppuku???
"This term has special significance in Japanese culture due to historical traditions of seppuku." What is the "special significance"? I'm a Japanese, but I can't get the point.
Yes I agree it doesnt make sense
Perhaps it has more to do with the concept of giri, or personal duty - if an employee were to give less than his absolute utmost, the company might fail or experience setback. They would therefore lose face, all because of a single worker. Viewer 22:40, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
Karoshi- the game
There is a game called karoshi that is heaps good. Admitedly the online isn't as good as the other version, but it is still heaps good. There should be some reference to this game, or another page about it 22.214.171.124 (talk) 04:33, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
In the second paragraph, the article states "Since the late 1960s, 5 cases of karōshi were reported in Japan." I believe this is either a typo or very poorly worded. Never mind that five cases in forty years won't get anyone worked up; the statement is contradicted further down with the mention of the 2007 statistics. Since I can't find the source, I am removing the sentence until someone can fix it. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:26, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
