Online Poker is Rigged

I don't usually go in for hand histories, but this one was too funny to pass up. Of course, online poker IS rigged against people that play like this, but I think that has more to do with the game of poker, than the implementation at PokerStars.

Keep in mind that this is the very first hand.
