"Your 'reality', sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever."
— Karl Friedrich Hieronymus, Freiherr von Münchhausen


Bulletball is a game by inventor Marc Griffin. Griffin gained notoriety by appearing on a Reality TV show called American Inventor. When Griffin told the judges he had sold his wife's wedding ring, was now living out of his car and had dedicated 26 years of his life to promoting his game, the judges were harsh in their judgment: "You told us that you’ve given twenty-six years of your life to this game. I think that’s more of a life than a man can give to a dream. Please get your life back." I almost cried watching this.

Griffin's website sells Bulletball tables for $399.99.

Dude -- I can build that think for $9.99. I love that he really thinks it's a selling point that the game table can be used as a kitchen table as well. The human capacity for self delusion is stunning.

Seems people agree with you.

Griffin claims he's the victim of very selective editing.
