  1. I think my favorite part was the part where you talked about wagering.

    I wondered why you didn’t award any colored banners to the wagers tonight!

    I would add one thing to the analysis numbers at the bottom. Yes, Melissa should bet at least 401, thus locking up second if she gets it right. But she also should bet at most 4,199, thus locking up second if both she and Gordon get it wrong (as in fact happened).

    Thus I award her a red banner, while Choyon and Gordon both get green.

      Actually with both ends of her range you don’t need to add/subtract the dollar since she’d be ahead if tied (which happened IRL with this game).

    I wanted to answer “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” but that was published in 1928.

    I thought you must be embellishing the 500 Questions thing. I watched the first 8 minutes of that show and had to turn it off. It was unbearable. It’s like the host was worried if he didn’t repeat everything theatrically every few seconds they might blow through all their questions too quickly. Either that or he thinks the audience has the memory of a goldfish.

What do you think?
