Lottery winnerOk, this is a little off-topic, but it's just too good not to share. Besides, you could always pull the same prank with a high-def Windows Media Center, so bear with us. Looks like a few fine fellows down in Texas played a little prank on their buddy Thad. Here's the gist:

"After a fake craps dice prank on Thad during Haasfest 2004 was so successful, we had to come up with something for Haasfest 2005 that would top it. The idea was to pre-record a Texas Lotto drawing and a save it on the TIVO. We bought a lottery ticket with the numbers to match that pre-recorded lottery drawing. The day of Haasfest, we asked Thad stop on his way over and buy a couple Lotto tickets. At some point in the night, we swapped the tickets he had bought with the fake tickets. If you ever wanted to know what it felt like to win the lottery, just watch Thad check his numbers..."

NOTE: While absolutely hysterical, the video isn't work or kids safe. Then again, I'd be dropping some "#*&@*" if I thought I just won $25 million too.
