Seriously, Though... Jason, Should I Be Worried?

This is kinda dark, but my thoughts turned immediately to J while reading this story.

Tim Eves was 'jogging' on a Wii Fit games console as Emma Tuck and Lewis Hickin looked on, when he slumped to the floor.
The family were told he could have been killed by Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Also known as Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome, it is a disorder of the electrical system of the heart.
Those with the condition are vulnerable to an abnormal heart rhythm. During exercise the heart may stop pumping out blood, causing the brain to become deprived of blood and sudden death. The condition is estimated to kill 500 people a year.

Jason, I know you have a weird heart thing.  And I don't wanna panic you or anything... but please do not ever play the Wii Fit.  (If you ever get the urge to play, just watch someone else play instead.)

By the way, just because there's nothing funny about this post, here's an funny image to enjoy.
