    I think this makes more sense, actually.

  • Fine, fine, I thought that it would be clear from contextiness but I should have figured that Pendantry would rule the battlefield.

    IRL == In Real Life
    CW == the set of Crapsack Worlds

    Some of us only read minds by reading what they say and write…



  • Some informational links have clarified things a bit.

    [spoiler]When I was a kid, and one of us kids did a non-sequitur, the usual parent response was a befuddled, "What does that have to do with the price of rice in China?"[/spoiler]

    We use the "price of tea in China" variant.

    Well, either that or "forestation of the Moon". I prefer that one.

    That's what I've always heard, too. Though "price of rice" has a nice sound to it.

    TIL.

    Now. I have a dream... something to strive for. Thank you.

    It was a game show, wasn't it? Contestants had to guess how much a car cost, or something like that...



  • I think it was called "The Cost is Correct"

    Some of guessing games were pretty hard unless you had fairly specific knowledge of the product you were guessing about, but there was one they didn't use very often, probably because it was trivially easy to win if the contestant didn't get so excited that he/she weren't paying attention to what he/she was doing. The contestant guessed a price, and the host said "higher" or "lower" — simple binary search.
