*sigh* I'm going to choose -- I probably should take a lifeline, because I'm totally... because I didn't want math or time, I'm like crazy here, but... I'm gonna take a chance and I'm gonna go.... 9 hours 3 minutes... yes, A, final. *hides*

Yeah, you got your thousand, but the producers now know that they can get away with only giving you like 0 in twenties.
+1 start for reinforcing my stereotypes of Southerners.

Considering the taxes on winnings, she'd probably end up ahead.

GOD DAMMIT LADY I'M FROM THE SOUTH AND THAT WAS THE EASIEST QUESTION I'VE EVER SEEN
I HOPE YOU DON'T HAVE KIDS

It's unfathomable how she couldn't figure this. Do you suppose had they asked her, "How many minutes are in an hour?" she could have got it?
Also, she should hook up with this guy: http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=21800

God damn it, it was even multiple choice! You didn't even need to do the math, just most of the math. You could break that problem down into smaller problems and then only solve some of them and still arrive at the correct answer.

Cut her a break. THAT WAS ACTUALLY REALLY HARD!! I thought it was 8 hours 37 minutes.
|Sudan no1 - 2009-02-19 |
guys, those were a lot of numbers and she was nervous :(
I liked how they threw in an answer with three minutes on the end, to throw off people who were trying to do subtraction in their heads, 3 stars for that.

I hear Nintendo is going to give her a free DS along with Brain Age 1 & 2.

They'll be showing this on Chinese state television pretty soon.

I AM SO MUCH BETTER THAN THAT WOMAN AT DOING MENTAL MATH IN FRONT OF A LIVE STUDIO AUDIENCE 5 STARS AWAY!!!
seriously, its embarassing, but its not a sign of mental retardation
This isn't a question of nerves; she specifically says "I didn't want math or time." She genuinely doesn't know how to do it. Why don't you press play on the fuckin videos before you make a dumbass out of yourself.
No, it's not. But from the way she's flailing you can tell that she's not even trying to think about it. She just goes for it, go for it out of some gut feeling that she cannot understand, as if she was answering an obscure question about Civil War generals or elementary particles. She had time. She could count it out in her head. She could do it on her fingers. But she did not even try. She said: I'm not good at math, I'm going to take a chance. Watch it again, see the immediate look of horror cross her face, then the instant sigh of surrender. Then astonish as she celebrates her 00. As if that was a just reward for going on TV and doing her level best, rather than peanuts she gets for giving up without trying.
Ramanujan. Godel. Von Neumann. Schelling. People like this were famous for never needing to work shit out in their heads. The rest of us buckle down and work it out. I had to work it out: 7 to 7 is 12 hours, minus 2 to 5 o'clock gives 10 hours. Minus 3 minutes. Perhaps you have a different method; everyone does. Her method was to sigh heavily, throw her head around, profess ignorance, do something cute, and go home satisfied. And poor.
This woman is the fall of our civilization. BEHOLD HER WITHERED FORM AND TREMBLE.
you didnt REALLY work it out though. not the way she wouldve had to. unless you did it in front of a crowd of hundreds with millions more watching at home and even more awaiting from god knows how many times this will be syndicated. that sort of overwhelming stress does different things to different people, and making elaborate interpretations of individual facial expressions or her tone of voice only goes so far.
id like to think that I could buckle down and Math It Out until I had a respectable guess, but whos to say I wouldnt choke and decide to cave in towards a guess answer before I crumpled like a braindead idiot-sponge under the hot lights?
also prickly pete is a retard who will die with eight cocks in his mouth

It looked like she was already nervous as hell just being there at all. She probably would have cracked at the first non-gimmie question no matter what it was.
|boba. - 2009-02-20 |
this was a relatively easy question but there's nothing particularly shocking or amusing about an adult fucking this up versus any of the other early questions. I bet half your moms would also get this wrong.
|afp3683 - 2009-02-20 |
She spends all that time trying to figure out which is the best guess, rather than actually trying to figure it out.
And now her unintellectual laziness televised to an entire world.
|Jeff Fries - 2009-02-20 |
Look at these assholes up in here
assholery is good when it's deserved, not when it's a bunch of aspergers losers in a room being like LOOK AT THAT STUPID WOMAN SHE CAN'T DO MATH I AM BETTER THAN HER I COULD DO THAT PROBLEM NOW I WILL GO LOOK AT HENTAI AND LONG VIDEOS EXPLAINING POINT-BY-POINT WHY OTHER CREATIONIST VIDEOS ARE WRONG I AM SO SMART
This isn't about "I'm smrter than her, lol." It's about intellectual laziness. She pretty much said "Math is hard tee hee hee" and gave up
