    So I missed the whole reason behind this. Was this a random person that got picked? What is the significance?

    Said in the stream that he was the first pre-order. There's a recording up there now for anyone who missed it live.

    I particularly enjoyed the part where he opened the box upside down and everything nearly fell out!

    And the " Do you have a computer? ...No" part lol...I don't know, but if I knew that Palmer was coming to see me live I would have had my PC ready for it...

    In case you all missed it.

    EDIT: I know it's on Facebook, just thought it would be easier than tabbing out.

    Hugh Hefner has his bathrobe on all the time, Palmer chose this...

    REALLY!!!??? The first Rift delivered by Palmer personally!!! And the guy stands there like: "Who are you, man? Give me the Rift and f*ck off!"
    What's wrong with him? He couldn't care less. There was no excitement at all. Yet another awkward Palmer moment. I'm sorry for him.
    Excuse my bad english. I speak to you through the google translator. :P

    I was thinking the same thing.  Show a little enthusiasm.  No computer to try it out!

    He's probably thinking - man, I hope the guy I sold this to on eBay doesn't mind me opening it.  
    I should have charged more for the autographs on the box.
    I hope you are not right. But it could be the truth.

    I think it's just a geek thing (and we're all borderline there right?)... I mean Sheldon Cooper would have reacted the same

    One could almost be convinced when Palmer says he should have told, that he did it as a revenge >:) that guy was not very enthusiastic about getting his rift at all :(

    I disagree, I'm an introvert, I still would have had my computer out and ready, friends over, and smiling, and handed him a beer

    I had to post this! This is exactly how I would feel if Palmer showed up with a Rift at my house
    I'd have pretended to be out, just to see the look on his face :wink:

    @Dreamwriter, I would too believe me!

    some people though could be described less as introverted... and more... well... socially dysfunctional... like on the few occasions when I've sobered up.

    What I mean is, I'm sure the guy was excited in his own way!

    I sobered up once. Realised I wasn't actually married to twins and only had two cats instead of four.

    To get a signed rift like that would have me going nuts.

    If he actually does Ebay it, I wonder how much it'll cost...

    Although of course, if he does, everyone will know because of the signatures and Palmer will probably send the boys round to beat him to death with Touch controllers.

    Relax, it's not like he stood their with emotionless stare, he looked moderately excited. Imagine if the first preorder had been some angry guy guy who hates people or something, it could had been much worse.

    @nostrum, I'd say a pub outing for the regular forum members would be a fun idea.. even invite the angry brigade for the discussion value (mentioning no names). I'm reminded of the impromptu field trip in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest though.

    Ah, I love that film! Was wondering what I was going to watch tonight - you've just helped me make my decision! :)
