I went to the world fair a few years ago.. In Hong Kong. Played the gun pellet game. First game found that the gun was shooting to the left.

Yep, but reality isn't like that. Whenever possible, people do illegal things.

Reveling in the misfortune of others isn't something I try to frequently do, but the larger-than-life story about a New Hampshire man who [url="http://www.destructoid.com/some-guy-lost-his-life-savings-for-a-kinect-at-a-carnival-252863.phtml"]burned through his life savings[/url] at a carnival in an attempt to win a Kinect was simply too much to handle.
Making matters even more humorous, Henry Gribbohm ultimately ended up with a stuffed banana as his prize. The thing had [i]dreadlocks[/i], for eff's sake! Questions of whether the carnival game was rigged aside, it seems he'll be okay after all. [url="http://www.collegehumor.com/article/6888354/we-bought-this-guys-dreadlocks-banana-for-2600"]College Humor[/url] has smartly leveraged the viral nature of this cautionary tale to help Gribbohm and itself out.

The site set up a Facebook "Likes" goal that promised to pay him back his lost savings of $2,600 for the banana as well as give the guy his sought-after Xbox 360 Kinect bundle. The goal was, of course, reached. And he says he's putting the money toward a college fund for his children and a Boston Run donation. What a shockingly happy ending this turned out to be.

Why don't you show a little more respect? He had a point there.

Well if your life savings is only $2600, I can see how you might make a bad decision like that.

That's more than I have saved.

Makes perfect sense -- the man is an idiot.

Don't let this guy go to Vegas. He will come back with half his organs missing.

A point that doesn't apply IRL, just on armchair opinionated enthusiasts?
