183: Eyes on the Prize

DIRECT DOWNLOAD  /  ITUNES  /  RSS 


Winning is nice, but getting a prize for it is even better. So get ready to head to the podium to receive some award-winning trivia! Celebrate the entertainment highs in our almost-EGOT quiz, and on the other end of the spectrum, cringe at the entertainment lows in our Razzie award challenge. Find out how scientists cleverly smuggled and hid gold Nobel prizes right under Nazi noses during WWII, and get ready to pin some county fair blue ribbons on to some comically large and record-breaking produce. And Chris dissects more carnival game scams and the story behind a prized Rastafarian banana.

RUNTIME: 1 hour 4 minutes 15 seconds

In this episode you mentioned the festival game that you swing a ball to hit a pin and it's mathematically impossible. Couldn't it be possible using the Magnus effect? "Launching" the ball with a spin could alter it enough, just barely, to make it happen.

In the episode you questioned why there were only three Medals of Honor. The Marine Corps is a part of the Department of the Navy. And during wartime (the only time you can earn a Medal of Honor) the Coast Guard falls under the Department of the Navy as well.

During peacetime, the Coast Guard falls under the Department of Transportation.

Hope that helps.

On tubs of fun. Could you throw them both at the same time, and they would both stay in?
