An attendee at QuakeCon (a video game convention) recently became infamous for being caught on tape committing the blunder of a lifetime; selling a winning raffle ticket for a 2011 Ford Shelby GT500.

This wasn’t your ordinary raffle either. To get the ticket (one of 100) you had to win one of the convention-sponsored tournaments or contests, which ostensibly took some skill, and made for very good odds. One raffle ticket winner sold his for $200 moments before the draw, only to find that his was the winner.

Presumably, the winner was not a car guy, otherwise we would have seen him collapse with anguish upon seeing this. The bald, dorky looking ticket buyer, on the other hand, looks unbearably smug, and it’s a perfectly understandable reaction.
