Two CS 1978/86 questions
« on: October 04, 2019, 02:30:11 PM »
1. I was watching an episode of Eubanks CS recently. The show opened to a game in progress in which each player's base card was the four of clubs. Do you recall any other occurrences of this?

2. Has there ever been a poll of 100 people in which the answer was zero?

Live for the present.  Embrace the future.  Our favorite game show is still producing excellent, high quality, exciting, hour-long* shows every weekday throughout its traditional season window.  Itís as good as itís been in a long, long time.  If the 1980s were the Ďgood ole daysí for the Barker era, so is RIGHT NOW for the Carey era.  Donít worry about what the future holds.  It will play out in due time.  Enjoy what we have right in front of us in the meantime!

To the best of my knowledge, (1) likely has, and it's possible to do so since each player has his/her own deck. On (2), I think it happened at least twice, but I could be (and usually am) wrong.

1. The probability of both players having the same base card is 1/52, and they played about 2 games per episode. Thus, you'd expect that to occur once every 26 shows, or once every 5 weeks or so. So I'm sure that wasn't the only time.

2. I remember seeing an answer of 0 on an episode aired on Buzzr--I forget the question, or even who the host was, but I remember being very surprised. I highly doubt there was ever an answer of 100 on a non-educated guess question, though, since the displays couldn't handle three digits.

Additionally, did they ask the same 100 people the same questions if it wasn't specified that a certain set of people had been chosen for a question, or was a different group of 100 used for every question?
