A question is read, and each player writes the answer down on a paddle; when released, the paddle will flip up into the middle, thanks to a clever rubber-band mechanism. The player who first turns in the correct answer wins the point. If no one turns in the correct answer, then (for number questions) the closest answer wins the point. Each answer is no longer than four characters. Questions range from very easy ("I could have had a V-_!") to ridiculously difficult ("How many teeth does a sloth have?"), and make for an amusing challenge. Adding spice are the personal questions ("How many times have I lost a job?"), where you have to guess what the reader answered.
