Culture: A little too “Right”: How one guy hacked “The Price is Right”

  • Why did Drew Carey have approximately zero energy in this 2008 clip, where one of his “Price is Right” contestants got a Showcase Showdown price exactly right? Well, two reasons: One, he thinks the show’s never going to air, and two, because he thinks the guy who won it, Terry Kniess, is cheating. In truth, he wasn’t cheating – he just spent months watching the show very closely, like fellow game show hacker Michael Larson (awesomely) did with “Press Your Luck” in the early 1980s, and noticed that they kept repeating the same items (and prices). Kneiss’ spectacular win forced the show to change the way they did their prizes. source

Politics: John Edwards used a lot of tricks not to get caught, still did

  • Slate writer Christopher Beam • Regarding the John Edwards/Rielle Hunter affair, which former Edwards associate Andrew Young wrote about in great detail. Young was on the losing side of most of the romantic facilitation, having to do pretty much everything possible to cover it up from Edwards’ wife Elizabeth, who was reading financial and phone records with a fine-toothed comb. It’s a nice guide about how not to get caught when having an affair. Final tip: Make sure you wear a condom. Edwards didn’t. source
