Comment of the Day: Cash scrum at the fair
|Serge threw away one-tenth of what the State Fair's first armed robbers made off with the night before.|
The situation on the ground remained relatively calm throughout Vorobyov's trip on the Skyride -- he says he tossed 800 one dollar bills and two hundos to folks below during the jaunt -- but Passing Wind Rainbow's comment got us thinking about what might've happened had people been aware of the big bills Serge was working with in advance.
Here's what he said:
We're not so sure about Rainbow's the last sentence -- how did he know there were hundred dollar bills literally up for grabs at the time, after all? -- but think Serge's decision to stick almost entirely with singles was probably a sound one. After all, as Serge told us, he was just trying to help people have fun, and it isn't very enjoyable to be part of a scrum clawing and tearing at each other for a Benjamin Franklin.
Unless, of course, you emerge from it $100 richer!
