Cheesy Mustache QB might make an appearance.

New warning: Don't get in a fight with someone who doesn't even need to bother to buy ink.

This dude memorized the patterns of the game board on Press Your Luck and won a bunch of money.

I read about this guy at least every 3 months.  He's a top-5 hero of mine.
I got a guy on the other line about some white walls

I had a professor that was in the IDF & part of their military planning operations shortly after this.  He didn't talk about it much, I had a very interesting conversation with him about the planning & execution of the bombing runs to take out Egyption runways.

Interesting, had heard the story but didnt realize the same guy was convicted of attempted manslaughter for stabbing a girl who turned him down later in life.....and was only served 15 months in jail for the attempted manslaughter.
