This may drive some nuts... and definately isn't for everyone, but the following is a link to a hilarious prank involving booze, a G4, and some explosives:

Not gonna watch -- this is that stupid dork who was asking for cash last year, so he could buy a new G5.

That machine could have gone to school or a family. What a waste.

I also was bothered by this.
It bothers me that sane people would donate money to some idiot to watch him destroy a useful Mac that could have been donated to someone or a school and served humanity.

Also the smugness in the video that they are doing something that is so hillarious.

Must be city dudes, Can't imagine someone from the country bothering to blow up a computer, I guess it makes an easy target.
Reminds me of when I was younger and worked overseas with some Russians and other Eastern Europeans. They had nothing but contempt for us North Americans. This is an example of why.

I wonder with the mentality of this guy if he even knows how to use a computer! What a moronic stunt!

Oh come on a bunch of guys want to blow something up, who are we to judge them for that? I threw a pop can into a campfire once and it kept me entertained for a good 30 minutes.

Stupid like a fox!
From what I can tell, he got his G5, and at 5 Grand U.S., it's spec'd up real good.

And if you think enjoying watching stuff blow up is a particularly American trait, you should have seen the thousands of Canadians traipsing through the drizzle toward downtown Ottawa on Canada Day night to see the fireworks display!
Hyuk!

hey! i was working at Major's hill park on Canada Day. And when the fireworks went off, it was like a tiger was unleashed behind the mob of people. they ran like a mob of zombies from the movie 28 days later to watch! of course, that was when we were supposed to head back to our office... lol NOT!

anyway yea, i'm less shocked about blowing up the G4 than the fact that he actually got the money.
