Feel the magic, hear the roar

Ancient spirits of evil, transform this decayed form…

Magic and mystery are part of their history

Bouncing here and there and everywhere…

Watchdog Sudoku

This is a screenshot from the Watchdog on the 28th. It was during a segment about a company offering dirt-cheap mobile phones on contracts where various puzzles and games were used in various contexts – such as a word search for the victims’ names – with this particular one being used to display amounts of money. However, if you know anything about sudoku puzzles, you’ll see they haven’t quite grasped the concept:

Dodge, Dip, Duck, Dive, and Dodge

Writing about web page http://www.challenge.co.uk/extremedodgeball/

I quite like Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and when I saw Extreme Dodgeball on Challenge on Sky, I thought, “Wow, they really do show dodgeball on telly. I wonder what it’s actually like…”

It was one of the weirdest things I’ve seen on TV for quite some time. Mainly because it was so close to the movie; the arena was just as extravagant and American, the teams were just as bizarre (one of them are mimes!), even the presenters are similar (although in the real one they’re both quite sensible). The only disappointing thing is that the umpire isn’t as extravagant (with the ridiculous arm gestures) as in the film…

Try and catch one if you can; it’s just bizarre…

Although I'd caught the odd episode here and there (my housemates this past year were fans) I'd never actually watched Lost in and kind of sequence; until recently. I'd enjoyed what I'd seen and decided the other day, "What the hell; I'm going to buy the box set. I've enjoyed the handful of episodes I've seen, so it's bound to be even better in full and in order…" And it is; if you haven't watched it yet, you really should; the only reason I'm glad I didn't watch it at the time is that I don't have to wait a week between each episode…

Anyway, the main point I wanted to make is this: I've just got to the one where we find out about Hurley's Lottery win, and I started wondering about how many people have actually used the Lost Numbers for the Lottery…

This must be a fairly large proportion of the sub–set of Lost fans that play the Lottery and don't do a Lucky Dip. Therefore, fun though it may be, it's really rather a stupid idea; if (well, I suppose it's probably "when") the numbers come up, the jackpot's going to be split between a very large number of people; it'd be like in Bruce Almighty where the winners barely made their money back because there were so many of them…

However, if everyone realises this and doesn't use them, then the one person who does use them is going to win big.

So, if everyone realises this and uses them in the hope of being "the one", as it were, then the winnings will be tiny.

But then if everyone thinks to themselves, "Hang on, I can't be the only person who's thought this; I may as well just use random numbers in the hope of winning more money," then there'll only be a few Lost Numbers Winners who'll get a lot.

Therefore, if everyone realises… and the trouble with this kind of thing is that you can just keep going; these situations are very easy to over analyse.

So, to sum up, I'm still wondering, but have shown that you can either win or not win, and you may or may not share the winnings with a large number of people.

So basically I'm still wondering…

This program will continue after the News

Why? Why can't you just have the News when the program has finished?
It's like bloody football. Why do they assume people would rather watch that crap instead of the decent programs that are cancelled to accomodate the pile of piss…
