How to win on 1980s era gameshow.
May 9, 2003
Did you ever watch that game show from the 1980s named "Press Your Luck"?  It's the one with the "whammies".  I used to watch it back then, the whammies were kind of cool to me and my friends.  There's an updated version of it on the Game Show Network now called "Whammy!".

As it turns out, in 1984, contestent Michael Larsen figured out how to beat the game and bitch-slapped CBS to the tune of $110,000 (an average winner walked with roughly $10,000).  All I have to say about this is: Michael Larsen kicks much ass.  The best part about it is that all he did was watch the show for hours upon hours, figured out the pattern to the "random" board, got on the show, then simply followed the pattern and racked up the cash, no cheating whatsoever.

Actually, I lied, that's not the best part.  The BEST part is that this guy was a fucking ice cream truck driver.  That rules!  If I was an ice cream truck driver, I'd "accidentally" drop kids' ice creams onto the sidewalk after they paid me, but pretend that it was their fault and make them buy another.  Hell yeah, that's a super-sweet plan.
