    Somehow I'm thinking this braniac has been duped before.

    Maybe I should look into becoming a carny instead of a marketer.

    An xbox yes. A kinect is an addon so you could have that for $100->$150.

    Why would you go home to get $2,300 more?

    My Cousin use to work at a fair when I was in high school, he was one of the kids who like to figure out things never like to lose but he finally figured out how to beat that game...what u suppose to do is take the ball place it between your thumb and index and spin the ball forward as u pitch it..once the ball hit the bottom of the tub instead of the ball flying back to you it would fly forward because of the rotation of the ball it would still bounce but it would never bounce backwards.

    What most people do is pitch the ball underhanded and what happens the ball has a backspin once it hit the bottom of the tub it spins out.

    Even less reason to drop so much cash... This guy really should have checked prices on Amazon or something first...
