I just landed a JVC GRDVL120U Mini DV for free.
Gone are the days of renting/borrowing equipment to do a documentary! I was going out to buy the exact same model next month, but I met someone (a real rich, snobby little fucker) who said if I answered his riddle correctly, I could have his. After talking to my friend about how this rich kid must have just received the audio book of the hobbit, I told him to hit me with his little riddle. I forgot the exact riddle, but the point of the story is that I answered it in 2 seconds. He frowned as much as a richy bitch could frown, and handed over the camera... Complete with a battery (the cheap sumbitch), a case, and a tripod. Fucking awesome.
Oh, I just remembered the riddle. It was: "The children's parents left for a vacation. After throwing a party, the kids filled the vodka bottles they drank back up with water. Upon returning, the parents knew their kids drank their vodka without even touching the bottles. How did they know?"
My first guess was correct. I said that they kept the bottles in the freezer, and since alcohol doesn't freeze (it DOES, but at a much slower rate), they saw that the contents was frozen. When they saw this, they knew they had dumb-fuck children.
I never want to see that asshole again, though. Even though I could probably get a new computer by answering another one of his lame riddles.
