    Ha! Exactly.
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Technical difficulties making the noon game interesting. Unfortunately, I went out on the Arnold Schwarzenegger question.

    I'm sticking around in case they just start this game all over again.

    I would have gone out on the Hercules in NY Q, but apparently someone (bless you!) gave me a lifeline so I hung around until blowing the 11th(?) question (the seed within a legume is called a pulse) but got the final Q. As always, close but no five-cent cigar....

    I actually knew that one. There was an episode of How Did This Get Made that covered it.

    I read an "article" recently with a guy who writes trivia questions for a living. He was commenting on the rise of HQ. He has one the game 6 times so far, but he said that he has never won without an extra life.

    In other words, we all need to swap referrals so that we can each get at least one extra life. Don't get greedy! Make sure everyone has at least one before we go we give anyone a second one.


    Reply to this and let us know if you have an extra life. If not, post your referral code.

    I do not have an extra life. Referral code is: campilobaxter

    Finally caught the game tonight. Don't remember the question I was saved on, but I went out on the thickness of ice. 4 inches just seemed way insufficient [insert twss joke here].

    App was super buggy for me tonight. I went out on the fourth question because the app didn't register that I had pressed the screen. Annoying.

    Damn, I would have been through Q9 if I hadn't missed the first one. I was out of on Q10 about Calvados though.

    I don't think I'll ever play another game.

    Not because I don't like the app. Just because it is now so buggy that I can't even get through 3 questions without it freezing me out. It froze on question one so I didn't even get to answer, but it used my extra life for me (thanks hostile!). I got question 2 re Howard Stern, but then it lagged so bad on Q3 that I was eliminated before I even heard the question.

    Boo.

    Made it to 11 tonight but didn’t know Michael Douglas had been a HS cheerleader. Would have missed 12 anyway.t

    No lag at all and Jimmy Kimmel as host? Has there been an infusion of capital?

    Made it to Question 8 this afternoon...didn't know the other name given to the planet Venus.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    My internet died after question 3.

    I'm sure I wouldn't have made it all the way. I haven't even gotten close since the very first time I tried when I missed on question 10.

    Have any of you won yet?

    Technology screwed me up last night. I opened up the app before the game had started, but it wasn't loading the app - just showing me all the messages flying by at the bottom of the screen with a "loading" type symbol where the questions and video appear. I closed it down and opened it back up to the main screen where, at the top, it said the game was in process and offered a "Watch" button. Thinking I'd already missed out, I selected "Watch" and found myself with about 2 seconds to answer the first question. I didn't even get to read the question before it registered it as an incorrect response.

    Ha! You know how they read a few of the winners' handles at the end? Today, she says slowly as she squints to read "hey, congrats to King... Ass... Ripper", then a long pause as she realizes she definitely picked the wrong shout out.

    What question did you miss?

    There was a contest for $50k last Sunday and about 1.7 million people (including me) got eliminated on a question about bird's nest soup.
