British man dies after doing ‘Gangnam Style’: report

Psy performing 'Gangnam Style'

'Gangnam Style', the year's biggest viral dance sensation, has reportedly claimed the life of an over-eager British man over the weekend.

According to The Telegraph, IT worker Eamom Kilbride, 46, suffered chest pains after dancing to the hit song "Gangnam Style" up on stage during his company's Christmas party in England.

Eamom Kilbride was at the party with his wife Julie, who was also celebrating her birthday. She told The Sun, "He had just finished dancing to 'Gangnam Style' with his pals on stage when he came back over to me. He kissed me and told me I was beautiful."

He then left to make his way to the toilet when he collapsed and eventually died of heart failure, most likely from over exertion when dancing to the hit phenomenon by Psy.

The death has prompted a warning from health officials informing middle-aged men to not overexert themselves during the festive season.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers.
