Credit Card Roulette- Play It This Weekend!
The Definition Of Unlucky
By Kickntrue on 3/12/10
I thought I had an unlucky go of it earlier this week, but the "star" of this story has it worse, for sure. First- my story, for comparison (and a good laugh). I've been trying for about 10 years (since I learned about it in college) to get a group to play credit card roulette with me after a night out. For those who don't know- credit card roulette is played by having every member of a party submit their credit card to be randomly picked by the waiter or waitress, and whoever has their card picked picks up the tab. It's a great way to get a free meal and adds a little excitement to the bill paying experience. Well- I'll save you the suspense as it's pretty obvious at this point... six of us in, so I had an 83% chance of getting a free meal at a pretty nice Italian restaurant. Instead- after convincing the whole table to play, I took home the $150 bill. Ouch.
Still- nothing in comparison to this Australian a couple weeks ago.
In what can only be described as a freak incident, a 38 year old woman has received fractures to her skull when she was hit in the head by a golf ball.So- 2am, first of all. Just not what you'd expect, but then through an open window of a cab driving by. WOW! From the rest of the article it seems they think someone threw the ball versus hitting it- which probably makes things less bad luck, a more criminal, but still- a pretty sucky night.

wow...There is a course here in Little Rock, AR right off of a busy road. When I mean right off, I mean, If you slice the ball to the right, you're hitting into traffic...Not the best design by any means
Man, I wish I still lived in Lewisburg. $150 for 6 is nice. I think I've racked up bigger bills at Skip's (only Lburgers will get that reference).

You know...even if it was criminal....that's still some pretty bad luck. I mean....to throw a golf ball through the open window of a taxi moving fast enough so that an occupant would end up with a fractured skull upon impact....ouch.
@PingRhoda: speaking of Little Rock...I almost played in Little Rock over the winter. The only reason I didn't is because your weather forecast changed at the last second to include some rain, so I ended up in Tulsa, OK instead. Which course is the one you're talking about?

man, the balls i send into the houses....if i don't kill someone...

I just listen fro the reassuring "THUMP" of the asphalt shingle..
no the sickening "SPLORT" of a skull.
maybe thats just me
