Enter CNET's The 404 SuperWeakness contest for a chance to win $404!
Every superhero has one -- tell us yours and you could win $404! CNET's The 404 Show brings you the SuperWeakness Contest to take your flaws and turn them into funds.
We all want to be superheroes with incredible superpowers, but we all know every superhero has a superweakness. Sure, there are classics -- Superman's got his kryptonite, Green Lantern is allergic to the color yellow, and of course there's Batman's historic cat-and-mouse game with the Internal Revenue Service.
The 404 will be on the ground in San Diego for Comic-Con 2013, and we want to know which modern-day problems bring you to your knees. Register with CNET and leave a comment on this blog post telling us about your crippling SuperWeakness. Enter and you'll have a chance to win $404, which also happens to be the name of our program (for those of you keeping score).
Does the thought of making eye contact in public bathrooms keep you up at night? Are you terrified of being framed for a crime you didn't commit, or even just commitment in general? What about holidays you can't pronounce -- those are pretty crazy, right? We want to hear them all. Submit an entry by July 20 and tune in to The 404 Show the following week when we announce the winner.
If you're going to be attending Comic-Con, you can submit another entry in person at the Base Station, located across from the Convention Center at Lou & Mickey's. If not, you just get one.
On the plus side, though, you can always check out The 404 Show for free, live every weekday at 9 a.m. PT/noon ET. Or if that's too much work, just subscribe using the buttons below.
