Can I be a winner too?

February 17, 2006

I was just watching a show called, Cash Cab, on the Discovery Channel. Has anyone ever seen this show? Very interesting twist on a game show.

The premise is it is normal NYC taxi cab that will pick you up and take you to you desitination. Once you get in the cab, the driver asks trivia questions on the way to you destination. For every question you get correct you receive money, and for every incorrect answer you get a strike. Once you get three strikes, you get booted out of the cab, whereever you happen to be.

I just watched a couple win $1300.00 on their way to their destination 24 blocks away. Why can’t I get that type of luck to get into a “gameshow” cab. I have looked it up and their are approximately 12,050 yellow cabs in New York City. This means I have a 1 in 12,000 chance of getting in the “gameshow” cab. Actually, these odds are much better than that of the lottery. I’m moving to New York!


Got something to say?
