    What... no apologies to the Europians? :confused:  "Sorry Europe." :(  And the Asians? "Sorry Asia. also no contest for you... hope you've enjoyed the movie though."

    I wish someone would say "Hey... let's hold a contest world wide with major prices." So sad... so, so sad. :cry

    Can a Canadian bother/sister explain this rule to us?

    "Canadian winners will be required to correctly answer a skill-based mathematical question in order to claim prize."

    The rules and regulations page wouldn't open for me. How many times can we enter, once, once a day, unlimited?

    Legally in Canada, to win any prize, you must answer a skill testing question.

    Also, it states immediate family (spouses and siblings, parents and children and their spouses) and household members of GM employees are not eligible. My uncle works for GM. This would make my mom (his sister) exempt, but it shouldn't affect me, right?

    The questions are very basic though. Something like, (10 + 25) / 7. For contests, such as McDonald's monopoly, you have to do the same when claiming your prize, whether it's a free burger or $1,000,000. Stupid thing though is that the question is *always* the same. And if you are incapable of answering it, the cashier simply tells you it.

    The whole thing is silly. Apparently it has to do with the government wanting you to "earn" the prize, as opposed to just being given it for nothing.

    If I win, maybe I'll trade it for the Best Buy exclusive figs. Probably will be worth about the same. Well, at least on eBay.

    Seriously though, if I win this, I don't know if I could afford insurance, so I would probably end up having to sell it :S

    I haven't logged in here for a while, but I really had to, to say IT REALLY SUCKS that we, in Quebec, can't enter the sweepstake, but that every other Canadian can.

    Why is Quebec left out?

    I can understand leaving all of Canada, not to mention other countries because the logistics to deliver the prize must be a pain in the ass, but why single out Quebec?

    Bought the movie, no pamphlet in it. I guess I'm screwed.

    IG, there isn't anything on the pamphlet you need (that I know of... I didn't see anything)

    Would my dad being a former GM employee (former for less than a week) affect my ability to enter?
