    Saw these updates coming through for our area via the twitter feed and started to get excited all these new places with pinball started showing up..

    Then realized the Qdoba in Columbia probably didn’t have a Laser War..

    Boo this man! Booooo! Fake news!

    Quoted from guitarded:

    Settle down, TidePod.

    Tide pods? Don’t you know? They are now doing the penny challenge.. unplugging their phone chargers a little bit and dropping a penny on both prongs.. super superior generation.

    Here’s what the twitter feed was doing at that time. All these have since been removed..

    Quoted from JodyG:

    Looking at Jeff's achievement page, it looks like most of his collection achievements are bullshit also.

    Yes but he has a ton of useless fake internet points. I use the pinball map a lot too for locations to see what might be a unique game to put on location. I also use it to see how desirable or how many known owners there are of a game. Sucks that both of those could be bullshit for fake internet points.

    Quoted from flecom:

    maybe I'm out of the loop (guaranteed) but what are these achievements and why do they matter?

    The issue is, apparently they matter enough for people to corrupt pinside data with false information in order to achieve them.
