    i watched a documentary on Amazon Prime the other day called Perfect Bid: The Contestant Who Knew Too Much. it’s about a California math teacher who’s been obsessed with The Price is Right for decades

    has been to over 25 tapings and even made a computer program in the 80s that he input every item’s price in (he would watch every show and constantly update the database)

    i guess if i got anything from the documentary it was... just because we think things are trivial like The Price is Right... some people may take it serious

    people are always taking things to the next level on every single item we come across on a daily basis.

    this has been PeachyRider reflects

    Yeah my favorite was the first one I did for them and I've been thinking that ever since! I have written a few down since then.

    This is a lot like when I reflect upon the fact that whatever far out theory anyone can come up with that they think they're the first person to imagine and that it's just too insane for anyone to actually believe...there is already someone out there who 100% believes it's true and probably has a blog or a podcast about it, lol. :D

    I just got an eMail alert about a PickFu HIT. What the .........
    Idea. Go over to the history channel and take a look around. Maybe. :)

    Or is there anyone you are aware of, maybe impressed some way about them that pricks your curiosity?

    A month or so ago, I was getting emails from them, the first one was a followup question and if you did it you'd get a .10 bonus, so I did it. The next time it was "thanks for doing our hit" or something. I replied with "you're welcome", I got a .10 bonus, lol. I miss the only .10 ever ten hits bonus though.
