Most of the prizes are actually purchased by the show. Here is an article that I think goes into it.

You can tell when something is presented via a sponsor, and when somethings is purchased. If they take a few seconds to tell the BTUs, material finish, and cooking area on a grill, that company sponsored the grill. If it's just a new grill, the price is right bought it.

tl/dr: Before the Price is Right, not that many prizes were given away, so it was all sponsored. Today, the shows buy most of the prizes.

My wife was on birth control for as long as you have been alive, just about, and we were pregnant at the next opportunity.

I know this is an anecdote and not scientific data, but there may come a time in your life when you and your significant other are unsure if she took her pill. Be careful. The pill is a pretty good goalie, but when you take the goalie out, there's no goalie.

Band Saw is where we saw many thumbs get taken in shop, table saw saw many pinkies,

I checked and in 2015 loss of fingers from table saws as compared to band saws was 124:2, and one of those 2 was a partial.


A table saw is a lot more dangerous than a band saw. They don't belong in the same sentence.

It's not the stuff you bought that makes you creepy, it's more the girl bound up in the trunk of your car.
