    I highly doubt it was the first or will be the last time.

    $2600 is you're life savings at the age of 30?

    Re: Man loses $2,600 on carnival game.

    Since when is an x-box worth $2600? If he couldn't afford to lose the money, he couldn't afford to waste it on an x-box either.

    What a moron.

    So much fail. Claims the game was rigged.

    It was a carnival game. No ******* ****, Sherlock. 5 year olds can figure that out.

    The very first thing I thought of.

    In fact, it's a tossup on whether the fact that he lost the money in a carnival game or the fact he considers $2,600 to be life savings is the more sad part of the story.

    Wait, so the booth gave him back 600? Even though this guy is a moron, something is fishy about that.

    Re: Man loses $2,600 on carnival game.

    They must not have any casinos nearby or he would have lost his money there. Who loses $300 at a carnival game, goes home and cleans out the piggy bank, then goes back to proceed to lose the rest. A compulsive gambler, that's who.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Well he's probably counting on Social Security to be there for him when he retires. And that pickup isn't going to get the big mudding tires or the lift kit put on it for free.
