Just an update on where I've been:

About two weeks ago my family flew out to LA to get me to Pomona College.  We got in three days early so we could explore California a little bit.  We went to Santa Monica Beach and Six Flags Magic Mountain.  Orientation began last Sunday (August 25th) and for four days, all the freshmen went on "Orientation Adventures".  I went surfing at Santa Barbara.  Orientation still kept everyone busy for another few days.  Classes started for me three days ago, and this is really the first time I've been able to sit down at my computer for something other than school.

So, that's what's been happening to me.  With my course schedule I'll probably only be able to check in here on weekends, if even that, but I thought I should drop in really quick.

One quick question about The Chase. In the final chase where the beast has to answer questions to get to a certain level to beat the contestants, if the beast gets the very first question wrong and the contestants answer it correctly, does:

A. The beast go down a step from 0 to -1?
B. The beast stay at 0 without an additional step being added?
C. The beast stay at 0 and the contestants get an additional step added? Example: The contestants have 18 steps. The beast gets question one wrong and the players get it right. They would go from 18 to 19 with the beast staying at 0.

I've only seen the first two episodes on GSN. I haven't seen any UK shows, so I don't know. I think option C is the best choice, but I still don't know. Can anyone answer this question for me?

The UK originally had it the second way, but after the first or second series, they changed to the third one.

The Chase is an amazing show, though I've only seen the UK version.  I can't watch the US version because I don't get GSN and the episodes don't seem to be on YouTube, but I think it's pretty cool that Mark Labbett is still the Chaser (though unfortunately, the only Chaser).

Apparently, FOX already tried a pilot of The Chase that not only had Mark Labbett, but also Brad Rutter as another Chaser and even the UK host Bradley Walsh.  Why they didn't pick it up then is beyond me, because this show has such a great following in the UK I'd be genuinely shocked if it isn't at least somewhat popular here.

This is so funny and amazing :lol:

I absolutely love Penn and Teller, and this was easily the funniest act they had on that show.  :lol:  If you haven't already seen it, I'd also look up "Piff the Magic Dragon", another hilarious act from that series.

I'm gonna take the opportunity to be a smartass here.  Everyone's talking about giving them a 0, but...

0!!!! = 1!!! = 1!! = 1! = 1

It seems the 1 rating is inescapable.  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Correct.  There was also a subtle third clue in that it was a haiku, which is a Japanese form of poetry.

Not quite, but almost...about five different times.  It's a combination of people not using their blinkers and not paying attention to pedestrians.

You've talked trash about someone without realizing they were in the room.
