Quote of the Day
@topsoil: The College Jeopardy winner wagered $1,337 in Final Jeopardy... seems more like the geek hero to me :)
@topsoil: I was hoping he'd come back and lose and then Alex would be like, "Sorry to say this...but you wagered $1337 and lost, which now means, *holds up sign* 'j00 4r3 n0t 1337.'"
@topsoil: Either that or Alex would just look at him and say, "pwn3d".
thanks BASH!
