I am probably well late to the karoshi party, but bumbled across this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karoshi

LOL, nah!!

I first found it in the Daily Mail, they were doing a section about new words and I thought it sounded cool and that I would use it one day!

Then we had the idea for Karoshi and I thought it was the ideal Oxymoron, well for the people using it anyway.... basically for us programming it is literary Death by over work, or it will be!! lol, but for the schools its an oxymoron stating it use to be DbOW but not anymore, thanks to us Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
