NOTE TO SELF:  Open carnival near areas populated by dummies with manboobs.

AFTER his for $300?

 

If you spend more than a couple of bucks on a carny game you are an idiot.

 

The crap you win is worth about 45 cents.

 

He shouldn't have spent more than a few bucks on something so trivial. However, the fact that he lost 300.00 then ran home to get more money is absurd.

The fact that he was trying to win a $150 kinect is even worse. The fact that he likely threw hundreds of balls and never figured out how to win is pretty embarrassing too. I'm pretty sure I figured out the trick just by watching the video

You have to spin the ball down the side so that it doesn't connect flush with the bottom of the bucket. They have convex bottoms and will bounce everything out that hits them. 

 

 

That being said, this guy is just stupid. To go back home for the rest of your life savings, and spend it all to try to win back $300?

 

How exactly was he planning on winning back his money, unless he was betting cash on each throw, which I am pretty sure is illegal. Or maybe he was planning on winning 20 kinects and reselling them on e-bay.

That was a great quote- "I’ve got to win my money back" when you arent even playing for money

 

A carnival prize worth $150 though?  That probably cost more than all the other crappy prizes in the entire carnival combined, there is no way they would actually let you win that
