World's Luckiest Man Was Sent A Copy Of "Boss Baby" Instead Of a Bitcoin Mining Rig

Gizmodo - Ichim Bogdan Cezar told the Plymouth Herald that he and some friends pooled their money back in November to purchase a Tanli ASIC Processing Bitmain AntMiner S9 for £3,149.99 (or about $4,400). The expense was a lot of money for them, but this was an investment. The price of bitcoin was at an all-time high, and within a month, it would double to a little over $19,000. But when the package arrived on December 5th, he says it contained nothing but a DVD of the Oscar-nominated animated film.

As cryptocurrency prices soared, Cezar and his associates were no closer to getting in on the boom, and they contacted the seller, Minifigures Direct Ltd, about the issue. The company initially informed Cezar that a “mistake” had been made and the correct product would arrive on December 16th. The date came and went, bitcoin hit $19,000, and no miner arrived.

This is the part of the story that every Amazon customer should pay attention to. On December 23rd and 24th, Cezar filed two refund requests that were both denied on the basis that he’d signed for the package. Bitcoin’s price was beginning to plummet, and all Cezar had to show for it was a series of emails and a copy of the highly acclaimed film The Boss Baby.

As they say in the old country, sometimes there really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Think about how lucky Ichim Cezar is. He thought he was so cool, buying some fancy pants Bitcoin mining machine. Thought he was going to become a self-made millionaire by mining for bitcoins all day. Knew absolutely nothing about how insanely difficult it really is to make money mining. The cost of electricity, the technology, the fact there’s so many people out there hunting for fake coins in the internet wilderness, most with much more powerful machines than his, he was setting himself up for failure to begin with.

But he didn’t fail at all.

No.

He received a copy of Boss Baby.

Say it with me: Luckiest. Man. Ever.

I mean yeah he doesn’t look overly-excited in that picture, but that’s probably because he doesn’t totally understand the premise of the film. How can he be both a boss AND a baby? Well pal, you’ll have to watch the movie to find out. Sorry, did I say “movie”? I mean Academy Award nominated movie.

You’re god damn right. Though the subject matter might be a bit advanced, it’s forward thinking themes and motifs earned it a nomination. So not only does that guy not have to worry about mining bitcoin, he can now enjoy a fantastic film. Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow indeed.
