This is a multiplayer version of the Chase, but no one is chasing the players, it is a race to see how quickly they can answer questions and earn points. In round 1, a 120 seconds quick quiz, 3 points for each right answer. In round 2, it's time to go streaking. Everyone will play a multiple choice question. each right answer will earn 1 point for the 1st correct answer, 2 points for the 2nd right answer in a row, 3 points for the 3rd in a row, and 5 points for the 4th and on. Miss a question, and you must start the streak over again. In the final round, we start with the player who is in last place. They will answer questions until they get one wrong or pass, each player will earn 2 points, but if they are wrong or pass, the player with the next highest can answer and steal the point (2 points for each player who missed) and the player(s) who miss or passed LOSE 1 point. and possession of answering. The order goes from highest to lowest If no one can answer the question, then the player who first answer will answer again. After sme time, each right answer will be worth 3 points each (still go back 1 if an opponent answers), then 4 points, then 5 points. The player with the most points after 2 hours wins.

This epidoe is a little bit different than all my other ones. That I am choosing to air this, arguably takes the cake in terms of how far beyong bizarre I can be; spontaneously so.
This episode was not planned. I decided to do this less than half an hour ago. Never had I even fantasized of doing such a show as this. I have no script, ¬ jotted down a single note.
Nothing contained here, is for you. Since I shall be on the air in less than 15 minutes, and as usual ,never promote my shows, you will not hear this live, but in the archive, if you chose.
In a nutshell you will be eavesdroping in on a private audio message to someone who a very long time ago, was, and still is, a world class scholar, arguaby the finest living scholar in his field. Due to the personal nature of this message, shall not divulge his identity, so certain names, places, & events will be intentionally left out.
Why am I doing this? I have no idea. I have always been a most spontaneous person. I do not think I have successfully calculated anything in my life, Making lists overwhelm sme; I feel trapped by setting limits. Those times I have made plans for the future, have always been "the kiss of death," and guarantee failure,as well as tragedy. I just DO what 'comes' to me, and it works. This is the only way anything works for me. The one who is the only one whom this episode is directed towards once told me I was 'a most odd and interesting' graduate student. FYI, I am much more odd, as well as , much more interesting now than when this remark was made more than 20 years ago. I get great satisfaction helping others, anyone, even those I do not particularly like, but few people have been, or are special to me. This person is one of those rare birds who changed my life, all for the better. I can't imagine this being of much interest to anyone, but I hope it is to him.
