Default MID-WEEK CONTEST

America suffered greatly during the 30's and then the 40's. First was the "great depression" and then the war. To escape these horrors it's citizens turned to three mediums, that being radio, "the theater of the mind" where they could forget, the comics or "funnies" or the big screen, that's if you had some pennies to go or had a theater in your area.

The theater would provide 2 movies, one the a feature, the second the b, hence the name b flick, Pathe news , so you could see the faces of folks you heard about or read about a catoon and a chapter from a serial. Serial? A serial was 10,12 or 15 chapters long, each chapter lasting between 15 and 20 minutes and at the end of each the hero, his girl or his best buddy were doomed to a horrible death. Could be pushed of a cliff, burned in oil, shot, blown up etc. End of serial?, not exactly because if you came back to the same theater next week, you would find out about the escape. This lasted for 10,12 or 15 weeks with pure action as each chapter ended with a sure death. Most serials came from radio or the "comics" as they had name recognition. This serial created by Chester Gould has some of the most amazing characters in comic history. It then played on radio for many years in a 15 minute serial format and was turned into 4 serials. The only serial to have 3 sequels , with Flash Gordon having two. It was on the front pace of the Sunday news comics for over 30 years.

It's the Dick Tracy serials, starring Ralph Byrd in the lead. He looked exactly like Dick Tracy in the comics. Here on 2 dvds with menu and chapter breaks is Dick Tracy. All you need is popcorn

To acquire, real simple. I have a number from one to 500 that I have shared with Savageamusement, who will be home this friday on weekend pass from the state pen. From what I understand she is coming along real good, learning a trade. If any one needs a custom license plate for their car, she is the girl to contact. Now you know the honesty involved. Post your guess on the site and the closest guess between now and Sunday night at 7:00 wins.

Harvey

My guess is 123, but since I've only won one contest in my entire loooooong life, that can't be the number.

Michael, if you keep guessing the same number, either you're NEVER going to win, or if you do, we'll all claim it was 'fixed'!!!!

Breaking out the dragonbear computer lets see what Harvey's mind has
come up with a brain teaser for today.

At the time that these serials were develped there was 2 major
television ideas. Mutual Broadcasting Company and
National Broadcasting company

So the interesting thing is that NBC actually had to networks.
NBC red and NBC blue. And they competed with each other.

So during the 30's the FCC released that NBC Blue was supressing
for competition of NBC Red. This of course was questionable in
nature. So for 4 years there was discussion on this technology
of television and how it might be used.

So later on in our history lesson NBC Blue and NBC Red were ordered
to seperate by the FCC. The new network created

ABC, the American Broadcast Company. Who was owned by the
owner at the time of Lifesavers. Yeah, those little candys that
we love to suck.

So after compiling all the data in our dragonbear super computer
we came up with the number that equals to the letters in NBC
x the Letters in CBS plus the knowledge that NBC had 2
networks at the time.

our official guess.

332.

And thank you for your support :-)
