My first win.

I'm not counting that it was only 8 questions, and a $.12 or .13 prize.

There was confetti, I tell ya.

Congrats! I chose to go with Cash Show instead, since I had an extra life. I won $1.37.

Their system screwed up. It said my answer was wrong. He said they were going to reboot. The next game is now at 9:00 PT.

I went out on Salisbury steak. I've been very dumb lately. Just want to get over a dollah.

If I hadn't missed the billionaire question, I'd have gone out on the last question. Robert Downey, Jr. played Charlie Chaplin, but I guess an honorary Oscar doesn't count. I would have gotten the sampling question right, but it would have been a lucky guess.

Here's what Wikipedia has to say about that.

I don't think we're following the Friday System. If you KNOW the answer, click in the first 5 seconds. If you don't know, don't click until second 6. If no one clicks in the first 5 seconds, we're on our own.
