I'd have rioted just for the sheer fact rioting is a blast.

Try it some time.

Isn't 2,000 rand about 200 U.S. dollars? Well, like the article said, that still is about 3 weeks' pay for the average worker there.

/me wants 200 dollars

Pathetic, and hilarious. The big winner is...everybody!

Hell, give 'em the money - you KNOW they're all going to run out and blow it all on beer. Here, we call that stimulating the economy, but you have to be rich already to be involved.

That's about 242.810 Euros.
2003-04-27 09:24:27 PM  
In order to pay everyone, this company would have to give out about 485,621 euros.

A couple of years ago I won a "free movie for two, soda and popcorn" bottlecap contest. When I called to claim my prize, the operator said that the movie was Ernest, Scarde Stupid and that the drink and popcorn offer was not being offered in NYC. Needless to say, you can take your cool, refreshing Dr Pepper and sit on it.
