After being repeatedly told to go outside and touch grass, cryptocurrency trader and metaverse enthusiast Noah Wilson made the bold step to leave his room and finally go outside.
Wilson, 27, and down 85% on his portfolio reached down to touch grass but quickly noticed that the tactile sensation of the real world was missing.
The trader then heard a distant muffled voice.
"Honey, your pasta is ready ... also can you get out of your fucking computer chair already and eat downstairs because you've been sitting there for 9 hours and I'm a little worried about the circulation in your legs."
After realizing that the voice belonged to his mother, the trader's mistake became clear.
