Deep in the red state of Idaho, Al Gore was scheduled to speak in at Boise State University, offering the keynote address to a conference on climate change.

The school gave away all 1,000 tickets to the venue in ten minutes, leaving almost 1,000 more people waiting in line. Oops!

OK, so they moved the speech to the campus basketball arena, which holds more than 10,000 people.

Those tickets sold out in less than five hours.
