Vancouver.....Vancouver damnit!



Here's the deal. My husband and I compete on Jeopardy each night. I put this map on MY bathroom wall so I can study "the world" as I sit. I was born in Canada...so I KNEW the answer on Millionaire was the same answer the audience gave at 42%....frickin Vancouver!! I also knew it was right... because I study my map while sitting on the throne. Even though I knew the episode was taped in September...I found myself yelling at the tv. No Becky! Don't use your other lifelines...go with the what the audience says. They are right!!!! Vancouver it is!
Damn! Hey...I'd certainly take $16,000 bucks, and I know I'd be more nervous than Becky seemed, but I'd also take a risk and trust the audience at 42%! I must report that my answers (all correct) would have gotten me to $25,000 bucks as well. It just makes me happy to know this....even though the first 5 questions were so easy, a 6th grader could've answered them.
But again, $16,000 dollars in less than 30 minutes is quite a haul! Congrats!

shit! I forgot to watch. Good for you and your geographic knowledge. Perhaps you could find your way to Lower Burrell, PA?

Love quiz shows!

Well, I can find Pittsburgh and you are about 20 minutes away (in good traffic)...so I think I could do it!
