    Woman trampled at Walmart in DVD sale

    From here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/3249574.stm

    How dumb can some people get? All that for a $30 DVD player that will crap out in a couple months. They didn't even give the woman the cheap player... they just put it on hold.

    Apparently if you want to win a race you have to use your elbows. Push the other person out of the way. I have never done that - but I have never ever won (largely simply because I couldn't).
    Have you watched tv really closely. You may see an actor/actress with a speaking part at that moment push aside an 'extra' to make that that his/her face is on the screen. Apparently that is permissible.

    Yeppir Phil, I hear it's called "scene stealing" and is quite prevalent with some actors/actresses.

    On the Walmart story, Snake had a good point, why didn't Walmart give her the DVD player for free if they were so concerned about her welfare...I'm sure they could easily afford a $30 machine out of their millions of dollars annual profit ...hmm, considering how cheap some of their "Made in China" stuff is they probably only paid $10 originally for it!

    I was running in a race once when someone shouted 'fast runners'. I didn't realise that that was, in effect, an order for slower runners (such as me) to get out of the way. I didn't, largely because I thought it was just an invitation to see how fast fast runners can run.
