Comment of the Day: Cash scrum at the fair
At least one of our readers saw himself in the video of Serge Vorobyov making it rain cash at the State Fair.
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!
