Some say I'm being cocky. Some say I'm being lazy. I say I'm being Billy Mitchell. The Man the Myth the Legend, Bill Mitchell

For those of you who havent seen the movie The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (2007) i suggest you all go check it out. Its a documentary about this guy that you might know, Billy Mitchell and his High Score for the arcade game Donkey Kong. Throughout the documentary you also meet his rival, Steve Wiebe who claims to have beaten his highscore and you follow them both throughout this pretty bizarre addiction to be crowned King of Donkey Kong.

In some rather disturbing news (again if you watched the movie youll know what im talking about) the world known ahole Billy Mitchell has reclaim his Donkey Kong crown with his new high score 1,062,800.

 


the devil reincarnated?

Billy Mitchell for those who dont know him is the most famous and controversial figure in American airpower history. The son of a wealthy Wisconsin senator, he enlisted as a private during the SpanishAmerican War. Quickly gaining a commission due to the intervention of his father, he joined the Signal Corps. He was an outstanding junior officer, displaying a rare degree of initiative, courage, and leadership. After challenging tours in the Philippines and Alaska, Mitchell was assigned to the General Staff-at the time its youngest member. He slowly became excited about aviation-which was then assigned to the Signal Corps-and its possibilities, and in 1916 at age 38, he took private flying lessons...... oh no my bad! Wrong Billy Mitchell!

The Billy Mitchell im talking about is best known to be cocky and he looks as if he just stepped out of a timemachine and has claimed 80s as his call. When Billy Mitchell beat the high score from previous champion Hank Chien he quickly quit the game. When asked about this he responded "Some say I'm being cocky. Some say I'm being lazy. I say I'm being Billy Mitchell." Classic..

During the same event, Mitchell also set a new Donkey Kong, Jr. world record with his score of 1,270,900.
