It seems that whenever I post anything new here, I feel I'm not long for this forum.

I do not mean any offense towards any of you here, and I sincerely apologize if ever I have offended you.

Does anyone know if the confetti they used was round or square? Like, did they have a large hole punch to make round confetti, or was it just the shredded square kind?

I've checked some YouTube videos, but they're too poor quality to make out.

From what I've seen, it looks round.

Wow...Just wow.  Most days I come to the GSF to learn things I haven't previously known before, Some days I come to clarify previous knowledge, but some days I stay for the comic relief.  Thank you GSF!

All I have to say about this topic is this...

Look, Ben, it's not the fact that you're offending people- what you're saying, honestly, is about as far from offensive.

The issue that some seem to have with what you actually are posting is that, for what it looks like, you apparently have an obsession with insignificant minutiae and it's not really something that everyone wants to read (if I'm to go by what I've seen and what I've said to you in the past). It just makes you seem a) overly obsessed and b) a know-it-all (in certain cases like your quirks post- which, BTW, I wouldn't consider Summer Bartholomew playing tennis a quirk. Now, if she enjoyed playing tennis in her birthday suit on a daily basis, that would apply. But it doesn't as you wrote it).

And besides, unless you do something incredibly stupid (i.e. whammy5000's post about substituting phallic euphemisms for words in GS titles or a certain user calling Matt O. a dried meat product), you're probably not going to be stopped from posting anytime soon. Just try going at it a different way and see what happens. And try and be a little more sane with some of your observations.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

My take on it would be that someone with said allergy would try out for Jeopardy! where they don't drop balloons.  It's like fast food.  I react badly to those tiny onions McDonald's puts on their hamburgers.  Rather than upset their routine, I go to Burger King.

In your daily life when you're talking to people or sending e-mails, do you stop to ponder how your words will be received, or do you just open up the tap and let fly? Because this isn't just your own private sandbox, you have to relate to people and have conversations with them and absorb what they tell you. (I guess you don't have to, but your stay will be unpleasant otherwise.)

The whole Ben/Mario deal doesn't help your cause either.

"Mario" is my childhood nickname, of course (from Super Mario Bros.)

I wish I could remain here, but I just can't seem to find anything to talk about here that's already been discussed at length.

The two times that I've seen a balloon drop on a TV set, the clean-up procedure was as follows: A few stagehands wander around the floor, each one holding a stick with a few nails embedded in one end. Pop, pop, pop. Another stagehand follows with a vacuum cleaner.

What brand of vacuum?

I\'m going to ask you a question that our associate circuit judge asks a lot of people:


 


Can you pass a drug test today? Did you study real hard?

 


/Actually, that\'s two questions...

Upon reading the initial post and noticing this thread went to six pages my first thought was \"way to feed the trolls, guys\".  Then I read through the responses and it seems that this guy really was serious about his question.  And to that I say...all the awesomeness that was the Jim Perry \"$ale of the Century\" and the only thing you have to ask about it was the balloons?  The balloons that only made an appearance whenever someone won the lot, which was...oh, just guessing here...nowhere NEAR often enough to warrant such a question?


 


Actually, screw the OP.  I just wanted the opportunity to express to the internet that I loved \"$ale\" but, besides the main theme and shopping music, it had THE worst music package on any game show I\'ve ever seen.  *sigh* There...I feel better.

I feel that a lot of the instant bargain music added to the ambience of the show, like you were actually at a shopping mall. It\'s too bad that a lot of it is lost, though.
