Witness a rare event on Jeopardy

Wednesday night, a bright young woman won her 3rd game in a row, and is moving toward the possibility of becoming a 5-time champion grand prize winner. Thursday night should be very interesting, and Friday very exciting if she makes it that far.

I have been watching Jeopardy for many years and I can't recall ever seeing a woman get this far. I'm not sure if there has ever been a female 5-time winner, but men do it all the time. I don't know if it is hormones, memory, or intellectual capacity, but for some reason females just don't do nearly as well as men on Jeopardy. I'm rooting for this girl, hope she does well.

Well, so much for equality, she choked. Women are not only less intelligent than men, but they also can't handle pressure.
