Very easy Bargain Game- even considering the distance between the two locations from LA there was still a huge price drop between the two making it pretty obvious to pick the lower priced trip.

Tough Hot Seat today. The hair dryer and the salt and pepper mills were the only easy ones to get, the other three SPs were toss-ups or different than expected.

The 2nd Showcase was pretty disappointing. I thought they were going to do something revolving around comparing trends in different decades to today, but it was just a TV with speakers and a car with some connection to the show.

The highlight of this show was the fifth one-bid - some great trolling there on Drew's end (with the dings even playing for a second!). Was surprised to see Money Game won too - not the easiest setup, and she didn't play very well either (picked 19 after already having revealed the front).

What is up with this season's overplaying of Card Game? There was absolutely no reason for it to show up today - it had been played in the 2 weeks before and the week after this show by production order. (And if you exclude the 7850s since that "week" only had one show, Card has been played six weeks in a row.) Unlike the 3 car games that tend to be played on a weekly basis, it's not even that quick of a game.
I hadn't really thought about this before, but the reality of death means that every day there are less people in the world than the day before.  In reality there are many more people in the world than this but for illustration: If one day there are 1000 people in the world and the next day 55 people die, now there are 945 people in the world. if 30 more die the next day now there are 915 people in the world. So we'll eventually become extinct as will all creatures as the same reality applies to dogs, cats, horses etc.
