So does everyone have Asperger's now?
/But this was actually an inventive idea in the world of "worlds dumbest criminals" crime, but as always, poor execution and target.

Valuable service to the community young man! Now I know where the stupid Fark-cards come from.

Retail theft has never ceased to perplex me. A person desires an object so much that they'll steal it, or they get a thrill from it, or they need money badly enough that they'll rip off trading cards... all while tempting having an arrest record which would make it harder to find a job, not to mention the fine/ jail time. I just don't get it.

Why is it hard for me to understand people who are most likely dumber?

The video is hilarious:
1) They came in together
2) The cop impersonator has obviously never watched any cop shows, ever

The body language and clothing (not to mention appearance and voice) would never convince me that he's a cop. And, as previously noted: they came in together! Too bad the Army's missing out on these geniuses.

They walked to walmart and needed the BB-gun and badge for protection cause there's a lot of "Crazy people" out there?
So somehow he thinks shooting a crazy with a BB-gun is a good idea? All it's gonna do is enrage them and make them all face eaty.

Plus it's Florida - the kid would be most likely to run into someone "standing their ground."

Having Asperger's Syndrome is not an excuse for committing crimes and if you so readily offer that as an excuse for your criminal behavior you should receive a harsher sentence.

I'm an adult male and I have to say that Yu-Gi-Oh! is a suprisingly well made game, and infinitely more complex than you would think, y'know, since it's played by kids.

I just play the video games, though. 40$ for a virtual card collection is better than thousands of dollars for a real card collection.

I wish they would put Duels of the Planeswalkers on a portable gaming system (I know it's out for iPads, shaddup). The Yu-Gi-Oh! Nintendo DS games are so damn good, and there is no excuse for Wizards to NOT release a DS or PSP or 3DS or Vita game.

Having worked at a Wal-Mart 13+ years I've discovered people will steal anything. One day a genius thought by setting fire to our tp display he would make a cover to steal Boone's Farm. I extinguished the fire before cops and the fire department arrived. When the cops watched the video footage it picked up him starting the fire, but not stealing the hooch

I only have Forbidden Memories on the PlayStation (played on a PS2, at least), and I have to agree that it's a fun game style. Do other games play more like the show, though? This one's one card per turn.

They would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling employees.

You have a filter that allows you to consider consequences. Lots of people don't, unfortunately.

My wife has a half-brother that used to shoplift from Walmart. He thought of it as a sport of some kind from what I understand of it. It wasn't so much that he couldn't consider consequences, so much as consequences just added to the thrill to him.

Most of your worst retail shoplifting (highest value) is typically inside jobs. And there you've got even more reason to question the judgement of the people involved.

I work in retail, and the thing that makes me laugh the most is when someone tries to shoplift our store brand merchandise. Seriously, if you are planning on just stealing it, why go for the cheap stuff? Do they think they will get in less trouble if they are caught?

I'm surprised they still make those cards [or really, any TCG].

God, that anime was the suckiest piece of suck that ever sucked. It almost looped around and became funny, the suck was so bad. Almost.
