When they inevitably do a third Dumb and Dumber film (they did a prequel), this kid will star. From news.com.au:
SOME teenagers might rebel by staying out late, but one 16-year-old who stayed home cost his mum $602. Jack Featherston downloaded two movies – Dumb and Dumber and Freddy Got Fingered – to his laptop, not knowing that the large files would add a hefty $573 to the bill. His mum, Michele Collins, told the Geelong Advertiser she now owns a very valuable copy of Dumb and Dumber.
“I could have hired it for $3 or bought my own copy at Big W for $9.99,” she said. “Instead I have the most expensive copy of that movie.” Jack downloaded the movies over 3′s mobile internet using a $29 monthly plan. He had 3.5GB of included downloads, with an excess fee of 10c per MB. However, with a single high-definition movie reaching over 4GB, Jack should have used his wired home broadband – which has a much larger download limit.
Don’t worry yourself too hard, Jackieboy. We’ve all done that, once. You only ever do it once. Just not as epicly as you did.
