If you're ever on Wheel of Fortune...

So I was watching at the gym last night while doing some elliptical and these things came to me. If you are ever on Wheel of Fortune and break one of tigerblade's Rules for Wheel of Fortune, I will hunt you down and beat you with your own shoe:
  1. Do not buy a vowel unless it is very early in the game and there are tons of letters yet to be uncovered, or if one word would make sense with two different vowels. If you had the $150 or whatever the hell it costs to buy a vowel sitting there in cash in front of you, I'm sure you might not be so cavalier about handing it to Pat just so you can make sure "th_" is really "the".
  2. Let's say you know the answer to the puzzle and there are five "R"s remaining and one "G". If you spin and get $250, do not call out "R". Your next spin could be $1000, which means you left $3000 on the table. Dumbass.
  3. Okay, maybe I only have two rules.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

But your next spin could also be one that will bankrupt you. You know the old saying--a bird in hand is better than two in the bush.

I'm saying after you already know the puzzle and could solve it at any time. I see people guess the multiple letter for small money, then spin again. If you're going to spin again anyway, you should have saved the multiple letters for bigger money.

You know, you can change the channel on those tvs. I watched supercross racing while I climbed my level 15 hill on the elliptical.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: If you're ever on Wheel of Fortune...

I'm just exercising my American right to bitch about something that I could otherwise just ignore.

I'm gonna have to agree with Mr. Titanium on this one. When I stumble across that show anymore I can't watch for more than a couple minutes. Dumbasses.

Of course, my elliptical is in my home in front of my own T.V. and I watch what I damned well please.

I don't know that the good part needs to be in there - maybe somewhat is a better fit.

If your next spin is a bankrupt....it really doesn't matter as you just shot that bird in the bush with a 12 guage. I agree with TB. What's this world comming to..
