A lousy year ruins the potato crops in Idaho, collapsing your entire state's economy. Out of work and depressed, you take the $300 that you made from selling your house (after paying off the bank and real estate agents of course) and head off to California for better opportunities. You try to get in as an actor on a sitcom but nobody wants a nerdy web designer in their family show. Weeks later you finally land your big break serving cappuccinos to uppity yuppies in a Starbuck's in Malibu. Once you've finally saved up enough money to stop sleeping on the beach you head to an apartment complex to rent a room. Unfortunately for you, your upstairs neighbor weighs 500 pounds and his floors are at the breaking point. One day as you are cooking your dinner your neighbor falls through the floor and onto you. Then the fridge falls on the both of you.
