Idiotic Millionaire Contestants

One of my aunt sent me this through email. I don't really know if this is true... no one over 30 years old is that stupid!!! And besides, don't they have any screenings? Stupid people shouldn't be allowed in activities that require thinking... they'll just embarass themselves! :P

Here's the Story:

NEW YORK - Idaho resident Kathy Evans brought humiliation to her friends and family Tuesday when she set a new standard for stupidity with her appearance on the popular TV show, 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire..'

It seems that Evans, a 32-year-old wife and mother of two, got stuck on the first question, and proceeded to make what fans of the show are dubbing 'the absolute worst use of lifelines ever.'

After being introduced to the show's host Meredith Vieira, Evans assured her that she was ready to play, whereupon she was posed with an extremely easy $100 question. The question was: 'Which of the following is the largest?'

A) A Peanut
B) An Elephant
C) The Moon
D) Hey, who you calling large?

Immediately Mrs. Evans was struck with an all consuming panic as she realized that this was a question to which she did not readily know the answer.

'Hmm, oh boy, that's a toughie,' said Evans, as Vieira did her level best to hide her disbelief and disgust. 'I mean, I'm sure I've heard of some of these things before, but I have no idea how large they would be.'

Evans made the decision to use the first of her three lifelines, the 50/50. Answers A and D were removed, leaving her to decide which was bigger, an elephant or the moon. However, faced with an incredibly easy question, Evans still remained unsure.

'Oh! It removed the two I was leaning towards!' exclaimed Evans. 'Darn. I think I better phone a friend.'
Using the second of her two lifelines on the first question, Mrs.. Evans asked to be connected with her friend Betsy, who is an office assistant.

'Hi Betsy! How are you? This is Kathy! I'm on TV!' said Evans, wasting the first seven seconds of her call. 'Ok, I got an important question. Which of the following is the largest? B, an elephant, or C, the moon. 15 seconds hun.'
Betsy quickly replied that the answer was C, the moon. Evans proceeded to argue with her friend for the remaining ten seconds.

'Come on Betsy, are you sure?' said Evans. 'How sure are you? Duh, that can't be it.'

To everyone's astonishment, the moronic Evans declined to take her friend's advice and pick 'The Moon.'
'I just don't know if I can trust Betsy. She's not all that bright. So I think I'd like to ask the audience,' said Evans.
Asked to vote on the correct answer, the audience returned 98% in favor of answer C, 'The Moon.' Having used up all her lifelines, Evans then made the dumbest choice of her life.

'Wow, seems like everybody is against what I'm thinking,' said the too-stupid-to-live Evans. 'But you know, sometimes you just got to go with your gut. So, let's see. For which is larger, an elephant or the moon, I'm going to have to go with B, an elephant. Final answer.'

Evans sat before the dumbfounded audience, the only one waiting with bated breath, and was told that she was wrong, and that the answer was in fact, C, 'The Moon.'

Here's another one:

If I were them, I would have died of embarassment. Do you think there is a gene for stupidity? hmmm...

A VIP trip on MV doulos

The trip happened when the MV doulos arrived at the PIER in manila.

A brief history on MV doulos.
MV doulos is the oldest passenger ship that was made.

The Beginning!
It was originally build as a freighter named Medina, and still owned by Mallory Steamship Co., in the United states. Launched on August 22, 1914.
Medina has a sister ship named "NECHES".
NECHES has a short career as she sank following a collision of the coast of Deven, England in 1918.

The Fall!
In 1948, a Panamanian company, Cia Nivera San Miguel, Acquired Medina. The following year, she was converted to a migrant ship at La Spezia, Italy and named "ROMA". However, Roma does not appear to have been very successful in this new role and soon laid up and offered for sail.

The Revolution!
In 1952 Roma was sold to Glacoma Costa Fu Andres (Linea "C") in Italy and named "FRANCA C." Her original steam engine was replaced by a diesel engine and she was remodeled again, this time to a first class luxury liner. She was initially employed to sail around South America. Later Franca C. served as a cruise ship and sailed from Venice to Greek Islands and other Mediterranean ports. There were occasional trips to the black sea or across the Atlantic. At this stage of her career several alteration were made to the ship. The most important of these occurred in 1970 when a new flat diesel engine was installed.

The New ERA
In 1977 due to emergence of new cruise ships, it was decided that Franca C. would finally sent to the scrap yard. Several representative from the German Company 'Gute Bucher Fur Allo'(Good Book For All) were on board for her final cruise. They had been looking for a suitable ship to operate but have been unsuccessful in their search. After further investigation they have decided to purchased the vessel and on November 4, 1977 a formal agreement was signed. Franca C was renamed to "DOULOS", a Greek word meaning 'servant'. This was the seventh time that this historic ship has been rescued from the scrap yard. Following he purchased she was dry docked at Genoa, Italy were a number of repairs have been completed, including the replacement of the large section of the bow. The swimming pool on the boat deck was removed and a large canopy was erected for housing of extensive book fair. On June 3, 1978 after being fitted out in Bremen, Germany, Doulos embarked upon her new service as a floating book fair and conference center.

MV Doulos is in the Guiness Book of Records as the Oldest Active Passenger Ocean-Going Ship, Built in 1914 in the USA.
