I was watching "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" the other night with Bronn. Why? It's sad how so many people are not. He and I both prefer Cash Cab because it's actually challenging for us, at least further on in the game.

Well, the mayor of Muskogee, OK was asked "Who was the first woman in space?" (Note: that may not be the exact wording, but is the essence of the question in question). His musings as he attempted to wrangle the answer from the depths of his brain?

"What colour was her hair?"

Major fail. Yes, because obviously the only thing that stuck out in your hormone-soaked brain was her hair colour. Dear Gods.

(I also fail because I had to look up the answer. It was Sally Ride.)

At the end of the show there was a teaser for the next episode. During said teaser, a bunch of scantily clad female dancers came out and did a routine. My response?

Yes, let's show these brilliant girls on the show and any others at home watching that they can be as smart as anyone, but grow up to be nothing other than eye candy.
