The numbers for right answers don't include extra life saves.

I got the teeth correction right, but went out before you did (I don't remember the question). You get an extra life for playing 5 days in a row. Apparently you can also purchase extra lives ($1.99 for one, $4.99 for three) although you can only use one per game.

Doesn't the 5 day thing restart after using? I'm saying I've had consecutive lives and not bought them.
Oh please.

If I could buy a *real* extra life for $1.99 that would be good.

I don't think so - I think you can accumulate the extra lives.

You get a extra life for each 5 day streak, and can accumulate them.
Suitguy is not bitter.

feels he represents the many educated and rational onlookers who believe that the hysterical denouncement of lay scepticism is both unwarranted and counter-productive

The problem, then, is that such calls do not address an opposition audience so much as they signal virtue. They talk past those who need convincing. They ignore actual facts and counterargument. And they are irreparably smug.

So you're saying your life since 16 is not worth $1.99? Got it.

I won $2.71!

I noticed that every one of the BBs went out at the same time but I didn't see which question.

Do you all know about the two-finger swipe trick to get a free extra life? I did this last night after playing, and it worked on my iPod Touch. Supposebly, it works on Android, too.
