Ezzie's Blog Roundup 3/6: For The Love Of The Game

Today's Monday, which means that "Deal or No Deal" is on TV tonight. I'm very excited for the show, although I think it would be more realistic if the prizes were a little better.

Here's the description of the show from Wikipedia about the show for those of you who don't know:

The basic format of Deal or No Deal consists of a number of cases (usually 26) each containing a different amount of money. Not knowing the sum of money in each case, the contestant picks one case at random which potentially contains the contestant's prize. They then open the remaining cases, one by one, revealing the money they contained. At pre-determined intervals the contestant receives an offer from the bank to purchase the originally chosen case from the contestant, the offer being based on the potential value of the contestant's case. The contestant must then decide whether to take the deal from the bank, or to continue opening briefcases. If they decide not to take the deal and reveal low values then the next bank offer is likely to be higher (as the contestant's case is proven not to contain these low values). Alternatively they risk revealing higher values, lowering future offers from the bank.
The format of Deal or No Deal varies in each country. In the UK, for example, contestants choose from 22 boxes rather than 26 briefcases.

All of this, of course, deals with Talmudic prohibitions of gambling and games of chance, which I'm not sure I should be watching on TV. So if you're watching this, Lander College People, I'm not watching it. (heh heh)

And now, on to the roundup:

This is hilarious. Hmm, I'm thinking that maybe the parody bloggers should keep up the parody blogs... even after Purim.

Thanks for this wonderful article. One more thing to mention is that many digital cameras are available equipped with some sort of zoom lens that enables more or less of the scene to generally be included by 'zooming' in and out. These types of changes in focus length are reflected from the viewfinder and on big display screen right at the back of the specific camera. [url=]рост и вес мужчины[/url]
