So yea this happened to me like a week and a half ago, but I've been meaning to post this here ever since.

So heres how it happened it happened actually last Friday, I check the mail and i see a letter for me. Now I'm thinking its some college shit, but it doesn't say anything about a college on it.

So i open it. And it says

"Dear Anthony,

Congratulations! As the official judging organization administrating the MICROSOFT AND SPRINT DOWNLOAD & WIN SWEEPSTAKES we are pleased to announce that you have been selected as a Grand Prize Winner"

And the prize was 1600 Microsoft points! A retail of $20.00.


I don't even remember what i did to win this, but I must of downloaded some theme or gamer picture in order to get submitted.


For like the first three days i was shocked, because A. I've never won a contest or anything before and B. I didn't think Microsoft actually give back to the public.

but yea i have like 300 points or so left, i bought a bunch of songs for Rock Band.

(Before you say anything, I play the Drums mostly, and they are pretty close to the real thing, which i also play)

But my question to you guys in the Pit is, Have you even won a contest? If so what did you win.


Oh and by the way, I would of rather won a contest on here UG, they always have the best prizes, but I am happy none the less.

Check your email for some Nigerian who's about to give you $10,000,000,000. Make sure you fill out all of your info though, or else they can't transfer the money to your bank account. Do it before it's too late!

I had it on good authority that my old boss used to win LOADS of stuff through competitions. I heard it started when he won a years free phone contract or something that basically meant he could text in to competitions as much as he liked for free.

He used to literally text into any decent competitions hundreds of times and he used to win holidays and all sorts i heard.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.

I once won a GBA game. It was some sort of Looney Tunes thing. Nothing special, really.

When my father won 60.000 Norwegian Kroner (8800 US$), though, I got 5000 (730 US$) of them. Does that count as winning?

The last contest type thing I won was when I was 7. It was for McDonald's during the period of time that they had Lego happy meal toys. The prize was a very small scale model of this.

It was about a foot and a half tall. I entered, thinking there was no way I could win, and a week later they call me to tell me to come claim the prize. It now sits in my closet, foot broken off and part of the head too.
