If you’ve been surfing the web this week you probably saw this video of this contestant, Caitlin, guessing a puzzle using only one letter:
Esquire profiled  her afterwards which included this other fantastic game show gem  when Terry Kniess, on The Price is Right, won both showcase showdowns with a perfect guess. (video of his guess after the jump)
If that isn’t enough, all these game show antics reminded me of Ohio native Michael Larson  on Press Your Luck in 1984. He hit 35 squares in a row by memorizing the patterns and accumulated $110,237 in about an hour! It’s a fantastic story and you can watch video of it here .
Great stuff huh? For more great stuff, here’s this week’s roundup!
- My pal J. Money has started a new project called Love Drop , where they’ll drop “unexpected financial gifts on people once a month. Mortgages paid. Medical bills erased. Student loans gone. Equipment purchased for special-needs kids.”
- I’ve known Lazy Man for years now and every year he’s managed to discover MLM scams that pilfer the pockets of unsuspecting Americans. This time he’s stumbled onto the LifeVantage – Protandim Scam . If you’ve considered that or MonaVie , I’d check out his in-depth posts.
- The thief who broke into payment databases and stole all those credit card numbers from the likes of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, was sentenced to 20 years in prison  – the NY Times takes a look at Gonzales and the black market of identities.
- What happens with Seinfeld and economics  collide? An entertaining education!
Have a great weekend!
