Comments: Trouser pressed

I was equally amazed when that question popped up, and I think it knocks away the previous winner for the "Someone on a game show doesn't know THAT?" award:

Well, and my three-year-old often puts on her trousers both legs at once. True, this involves a good deal of falling over, but she does it. Of course, she may not be a 'normal person' within the meaning of the act, but then neither is Bill Gates, curse him.

Thanks,

I get those IMs too and am constantly frightened by the questions people are burning a lifeline on. Of course, my wife blew the $8,000 question on the old prime time edition with her phone a friend still on the table, so who am I to criticize how people are using their lifelines?

We should start answering wrong on all of the questions. On the Russian version of the show, the audience answers wrong on purpose to screw over the contestants. Are we going to be outdone by those damn Russkies? I say no!!
