For those of you who like to play our quizzes (see here and here and here and here), here’s a new one. But there are a couple of caveats/rule changes. First I’ll give the quiz, and then I’ll explain the rules.
The quiz: I will soon be appearing on a TV show that, if you think about it, fits pretty nicely with Freakonomics. Guess the show and you can win an autographed copy of the book. Hints: the show is in prime time and it’s taped, not live.
1. Unfortunately, it is possible to figure out the answer to this quiz by some simple Googling. So if you want to play the quiz, please don’t cheat by trying to look it up. Just make your best guess. You all know how good Levitt is at finding cheaters; don’t make me sic him on you.
2. Some of you have written to say that our quizzes are biased against people in certain time zones because we give the prize to the first person with the correct answer. So this time we’ll give away two books: one to the person with the first correct answer and, if others later guess correctly, we’ll select one of those people randomly to receive another book.
Good luck, and Happy New Year.
