Your Xbox or your life

There's a story in the Atlanta paper of a woman who waited in line for nine hours before paying almost $600 for her new Xbox 360, that she was going to give to her son.
Shortly after she got home, there was a knock at the door. A man pushed a gun in her face and stole the Xbox.

I'd like to believe that the thief stole the Xbox for his own use. How fucked up would it be if he stole it to give to his kid as a Xmas gift?
I fantasize that, if it was a gift for his kid, the evil Xbox would insert subliminary messages to the guy's kid whenever he played it.

"KILL YOUR FATHER" would flash on the screen for a moment. Just enough to where the kid would have an inexplicable urge after playing for a while.

  • The Atlanta Fox station has been showing video of either a man or woman getting the beat down in a store all morning.
    Probably over those $400 laptops at Wal-mart.

  • Funnily enough, the xBox 360s (yes, I want one...) are apparently crashing like mad. Imagine. A M$ product. Crashing. What are the odds?

    It'll truly be ironic if the purloined machine is among the most lemon-flavoured.
