I was looking for something good to post today for our Viral Video of the Week series, and upon reaching youtube.com, I saw this listed under the “recommended” section of my homepage, along with other videos of Miley Cyrus singing “Jolene” and of “The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert.” YouTube (apparently) knows that I am into games and game shows, especially Jeopardy!. It does not know that I don’t really like Wheel of Fortune because, among other reasons, the show makes me feel stupid when I can’t solve the puzzles, which is always. So whatever logarithm YouTube uses to recommend videos to its viewers, it has not yet gotten smarter than me. No, YouTube, I do not like Wheel of Fortune.
I do like this video, though, and I am happy for the guy who *Spoiler Alert!* won $63,000 in one day with his awesome puzzle-solving skills.
