Radio Contest Death On January 12, 2007, Jennifer Strange, a 28-year-old mother of three from Rancho Cordova, California pictured in the photo below, was found dead in her home by her mother. It was only a few hours after she had tried to win a Nintendo Wii game console on a radio contest. KDND 107.9 FM's Hold Your Wee for a Wii contest involved drinking large quantities of water without urinating. The cause of Strange's death was determined to be a rare condition known as water intoxication--basically when too much water is consumed by a human being. Civil charges against the radio station were filed by Jennifer's family. They were eventually awarded $16.5 million in the ensuing wrongful death lawsuit. Everyone connected with the contest was fired from KDND. Oh, yeah...Strange did not win the contest.

Whats My Line - First Episode Historic television: The very first episode of What's My Line from February 2, 1950 in its entirety. Despite having two really dull panelists, contestants with mundane occupations, and a mediocre mystery guest (New York Yankees' shortstop Phil Rizzuto), WML got off the ground. With a bit of tweaking it would soon be the best panel show on television.

Umpire Ed Hurley on Whats My Line American League baseball umpire Ed Hurley appeared as a challenger on What's My Line in this episode from October 4, 1953. In the early days of What's My Line, the panelists were each permitted a 'free guess' as to what the contestant's occupation was. Even though Hurley signed in with the alias 'John Doe,' Dorothy Kilgallen correctly guessed Hurley's job. (Hurley relates a funny story about an incident that occurred that day in the fifth game of the World Series between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Yankees.)

Ann Sheridan i love the way Ann Sheridan was "introduced" to Hollywood . . . .she had been a college student when her sister sent a photograph of her to Paramount Pictures. She subsequently entered and won a beauty contest, with part of her prize being a bit part in a Paramount film. She abandoned college to pursue a career in Hollywood...

Easter Eggs Symbolize New Life Of all the symbols associated with Easter, the egg, the symbol of fertility and new life, is the most identifiable. The customs and traditions of using eggs have been associated with Easter for centuries. Originally Easter eggs were painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring and were used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts. After they were colored and etched with various designs the eggs were exchanged by lovers and romantic admirers, much the same as valentines. In medieval time eggs were traditionally given at Easter to the servants. In Germany eggs were given to children along with other Easter gifts. Different cultures have developed their own ways of decorating Easter eggs. Crimson eggs, to honor the blood of Christ, are exchanged in Greece. In parts of Germany and Austria green eggs are used on Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday). The Slavic people decorate their eggs in special patterns of gold and silver. In Germany and other countries eggs used for cooking where not broken, but the contents were removed by piercing the end of each egg with a needle and blowing the contents into a bowl. The hollow eggs were dyed and hung from shrubs and trees during the Easter Week. The Armenians would decorate hollow eggs with pictures of Christ, the Virgin Mary, and other religious designs. At the Jewish Passover Seder, a hard-boiled egg dipped in salt water symbolizes both new life and the Passover sacrifice offered at the Temple in Jerusalem.

Jack Johnson Vs James Jeffries The most socially significant boxing match ever contested pitted world heavyweight champion Jack Johnson against former champ James Jeffries. Jeffries, who had hung up his gloves in 1904, had been coaxed out of retirement by big money to take on the cocky black champion in Reno, Nevada on July 4, 1910. The fight proved to be no contest as Johnson won easily. Race riots erupted all over the United States when the result was announced.

The New Treasure Hunt Anyone else remember this wacky, syndicated game show? Airing from 1974 through 1977, it was sort of a cross between Let's Make A Deal and Deal Or No Deal. A lucky contestant chose one of 30 numbered boxes. A box might contain anything from a worthless prize (known as a clunk) to $25,000--a fantastic sum back then. After choosing a box, the contestant was put through an emotional wringer by host Geoff Edwards. This clip from 1976 provides a good example of what typically occurred on this show.
