Foursquare, 7-Eleven and the movie Super 8 are gonna send you into space! Kinda! What's actually happening is that Foursquare users have a chance to win tickets to Super 8, or a Zero-G experience on a modified Boeing 727, by checking in to 7-Eleven locations in the U.S. The 888,888th person to check in before the end of June wins a trip to space. But of course, there's no chance on Earth they'll get that many people involved, so don't get your hopes up. That said, we should try to force their hands on the space-flight prize. It will really piss off Richard Branson no end to see Virgin Galactic having to compete with 7-Eleven.
