Anyone else immediately think South Park and Jennifer Love Hewitt after finding out the game he was playing?

If he's dumb enough to play games at a carnival and expect to win big.... He deserves to get punished like that.


It's no one's fault except his own. And to think, that man-child made a child.

Okay... after losing ~ten~ dollars on that game, I'd be going: "Yeah... not worth it..." and walk away. This guy started the "DOUBLE DOWN!!!!" game, left after losing three hundred bucks, went home to get two-thousand and three hundred more dollars, and played until he lost it all...

...I wonder, did this man stop to think: "This is a really stupid idea... what am I doing with my life?!".

You spend nine months trying to get out, and the rest of your life trying to get back in.

Apparently the mother was an easier target than a giant bucket.

Let's count down the time until some news media outlet blames video games for this man's negative IQ. You know it'll happen and you KNOW which news channel will do this. =P
