"In thirty-eight years, The Price is Right never had a contestant guess the exact value of prizes in the Showcase showdown. Until Terry Kniess outsmarted everyone — and changed everything … He looked into the audience for a moment, leaned into his microphone, and said his bid as though he were reading it from a slip of paper: $23,743. … "Wow," Drew Carey said. "That's a very exact bid. We'll be right back, folks," Carey said. "Don't go away." And then the show just stopped."

"To say it’s about Everything — which its adherents swear it is — is a bit grandiose. So let’s just say it’s about destiny. And metaphysics. And quantum physics. And leadership, torture, time travel, synchronicity, Skinner boxes, geodesic domes, polar bears, doomsday equations, comic books, the Casimir effect, and the no-less-potent Cass Elliot effect.

Once more into the hatch!"

"MST3K fans love to quote Joel Hodgson: "The right people will get it." And they always do; there's no disputing that. But occasionally, the wrong people want in on the joke. Not to say that you're the wrong person, of course — just that you're not the right person yet ... If you've ever seen the show, there's bound to have been some joke that you laughed at but left your friends or family scratching their heads. No one gets all the riffs (at least, no one that needs this site). So why not pool our collective knowledge of obscure and not-so-obscure knowledge, organize, categorize, and give everyone the benefit of our surplus of free time?"

"As the ceremony got under way with a dramatic, drummed countdown, viewers watching at home and on giant screens inside the Bird's Nest National Stadium watched as a series of giant footprints outlined in fireworks processed gloriously above the city from Tiananmen Square ... What they did not realise was that what they were watching was in fact computer graphics, meticulously created over a period of months and inserted into the coverage electronically at exactly the right moment."
