A chinese couple sold their 3 kids to fuel their gaming addiction. One for less than 500 dollars.

I know these deals are steals! I wish they had a newegg like e-mail or something so I can cash in on these.

Well China has had a long history of selling children.
Heck, it's a common literary trope in old chinese literature.

But still, this is stupid.
Everytime we gamers try to convince people that we're reasonable people, bozos like this pop up.

Also, they had 3 children?
How'd they get around the one child policy?

I love how the boys have about 8 times the monetary value of the girl.

The one-child law only applies to Han Chinese living in urban areas. Ethnic minorities and people living in rural communities aren't subject to this law.

I recall a short indie film clip, a fictional account, depicting a couple training their kid to run out into the street on a kind of command or signal.

Near the end, they do just that, and the short film ends with the parents getting awarded a million dollars in a court case against a driver they randomly selected to send the kid out in front of.

Every time I hear of news of some kid running out in the street and getting killed, I wonder about this.
