Even though I learned it (or perhaps re-learned it) back in July when the episode first taped, being under pressure does not help one think clearly. In hindsight I think I could have avoided using lifelines on all of the questions leading up to the one which finally had me walk away, but at the same time I resorted to my poker-playing habit: rely on skill to get in the money, rely on luck to win big. By relying on skill, you put yourself in position enough times to get lucky.
You see, as unlucky (perhaps) as some of my confusion at the time was, how lucky that I got a math question for 30,000!
Also last week I redesigned the website with a logo and some other branding items. I will introduce a mailing list which each week will send my five 'themed' posts in some sort of easy to read digest. I'm using Mailchimp, but I did not find the auto-RSS feed to be very attractive so I will curate the email so that it looks presentable. I won't send one until I actually get a subscriber, but I will do a post (perhaps on Friday as a non rhyming explanation poem), of the format and purpose of my musings.
