Well, maybe you can win enough money here to give up teaching, develop those talents, and then play professionally. Good luck to you.
Vahan, welcome to you, and.... (I quickly look up the Armenian word for "hello") Barev. You're originally from Yerevan, Armenia; and that makes you the first Armenian we've ever had on the show. What brought you out to California, and tell us a bit more about yourself.
Hello. I came to California when I was about eight months old. My family wanted to start a new life. I was encouraged by a friend to join a community forum game, and so, here I am now. This is my first one.
(Stacey exits) Greg: Thank you, Stace. We'll see you in the first Instant Bargain. OK, everyone. Thursday show, a lot to play for, Round 1.
1. What new Wonder of the World is located in Peru? 2. What author created Dr. Hannibal Lecter? 3. In what movie is $200,000 of Confederate gold buried in the grave marked "Unknown" next to Arch Stanton? 4. How many wings does a bee have? 5. What sport is sometimes called "rugger"?
1. What new Wonder of the World is located in Peru? (buzzcode: 84) *Nicholas buzzes in (65)* Nicholas? Nicholas: Machu Picchu That's correct, champ draws first blood. (ding)
Frank: $20 Vahan: $20 Nicholas: $25
2. What author created Dr. Hannibal Lecter? (buzzcode: 65) *Nicholas buzzes in (73)* Nicholas again? Nicholas: Thomas Harris Right again, up to $30. (ding)
Frank: $20 Vahan: $20 Nicholas: $30
3. In what movie is $200,000 of Confederate gold buried in the grave marked "Unknown" next to Arch Stanton? (buzzcode: 53) *Nicholas buzzes in (75)* Nicholas? Nicholas: "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" Hat trick! (ding)
Stacey: Nicholas, if you’ve ever wanted to make biking easier, here is your answer...
Step-through and have fun! The Pace 500 Step-Through takes our most popular ebike and makes it accessible for everyone. Whilst the step-through makes getting on the ebike a breeze, the five levels of pedal assist and a throttle with speeds of up to 20 mph also make riding this ebike as easy breezy as it can get! A powerful motor, 750W peak output, ensures that, even on the steepest hills, your ebike still has the power to get you to the top. Furnished by Aventon. There is one for you and one for a friend. Plus we are giving you $600 in cash towards helmets. Normally priced at
They can be yours today, on $ale of the Century... For just
Stacey: I am. I just pedaled from the studio to Spaceship Earth, went around that, and then pedaled all the way back. And in a dress!
Greg: Well, that does take skill. Nicholas, what we have here are two bikes and $600 in cash for helmets. I know that electric anything is popular in San Francisco right now. We know you can't drive, but do you bike at all?
Nicholas: I used to have an electric bike until a Toyota Sienna minivan ran me over a decade ago.
(audience reacts) Greg: Oh, that's terrible.
Nicholas: However, I was wearing a helmet and the driver got out to help me up.
Greg: I'm glad that happened, and you're safe and sound and here tonight. So, are you interested in this? I'm going to be honest with you, I can't do a thing about the price. You have a $25 lead, and I want this game to be competitive. So, I'm not going to touch the price at all. That's non-negotiable. However, what I can do is offer you... (I pull out some $100 bills from my sport coat pocket) One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, $1,000 in additional cash. $1,600 in cash plus the bikes, almost $7,600 in value for $6. Going once... going twice....
1. On the TV show Hogan's Heroes, what is Sergeant Schultz's catchphrase? (buzzcode: 76) *Nicholas buzzes in (93)* Nicholas? Nicholas: "I see nothing! I hear nothing! I know nothing!" You gave us the long version of it, but yes, "I know nothing" is correct. (ding)
Frank: $20 Vahan: $20 Nicholas: $44
2. Where in your body is your patella? (buzzcode: 39) *Frank buzzes in (32)* Frank? Frank: Knee That's right, Frank gets on the board. (ding)
Frank: $25 Vahan: $20 Nicholas: $44
3. In the famous logo, what is the Morton Salt girl holding in her right hand? (buzzcode: 8) *Vahan buzzes in (62)* Vahan? Vahan: Can of Morton Salt (buzzer)
Let's take a closer look at it.

As you can see, from her perspective, what we see as her right hand is actually her left hand. In her right hand, what we see as her left hand, she's holding an umbrella. I know, it confuses me all the time, too. Sorry, Vahan, we have to take $5 away, down to $15.
And it's time for our first Fame Game of the show. $10 going up on the board, looking for a famous PERSON.

(Players, please PM me a bid of one to six clues plus a buzzcode from 1-100. The lowest bid of clues gets the first chance to solve the puzzle by giving me their answer on the thread. If there is a tie for low bid, the tie is broken by manner of buzzcode. If you answer incorrectly, we will add one more clue and then use the buzzcodes of the remaining two to determine who gets to buzz in next. If that second person answers incorrectly, the last person gets all the remaining clues and a free chance to guess.)

Mandoli: If I'm supposed to get a third shot, then let me have it at the first chance I'm allowed to get it.

gameshowmaniac: now of course the "powers that be" are suggesting a 3rd shot.

dare2be: Just saw this latest discussion. My wife and son both had 2 days of fever of about 100 and body aches/fatigue on 2nd shot. I just had a little fatigue (felt like a cement mannequin), but no fever. Moderna back in April/May

wildjackmonroe: It's funny; I did all of this major house cleaning and stuff for the week early, expecting I'd be out of it for a couple days after my second vaccine shot, but I didn't have anything else but a sore arm like the first time.
Jul 24, 2021 19:49:52 GMT -5
gameshowmaniac: @mandoli someone I know had pain in the opposite arm that was jabbed. weird

rewindium: Sore arm and some fatigue but nothing like a fever or other major effects and didn’t have to take any pain relief. Glad to be added to the second dose statistic which today is 62% for my province
Jul 24, 2021 15:07:47 GMT -5
Mandoli: On another note, you might not. My brother didn't have any side effects of shot #2.
Jul 24, 2021 11:32:18 GMT -5
Mandoli: You'll feel it later, like this morning. I had a fever and slept in the day after my second. I begged work to not schedule me for the day after, knowing I wouldn't feel good.
Jul 24, 2021 10:59:23 GMT -5
rewindium: Got the second dose at a mass clinic earlier today, no side effects
