"JEOPARDY" CHAMP KEN JENNINGS UNINVITED TO NEW NBC GAME SHOW
Jeopardy champ Ken Jennings says he made a request to appear on NBC’s new trivia show, Million Second Quiz. He received an invitation to sit in its “money chair,” only to have the offer rescinded an hour later. “I sent in some paperwork and had a plane ticket in my [email] inbox by the time I sat down to brunch with my family,” Jennings wrote on September 14. However, an hour later, he got a phone call from a casting staffer saying there had been a “miscommunication.” Jennings wrote, “The network, for unspecified reasons, was not willing to fly ‘trivia champions' in for the show.” Jennings says NBC told him he could fly himself to New York if he wanted and wouldn’t even have to wait in line, but he turned them down. NBC has not commented on Jennings' claim. Jennings holds the record for the longest winning streak on Jeopardy, 74 straight matches in 2004, for a total of $3,172,700 in prize earnings.

SALESMAN HAS EATEN 12,000 BIG MAC MEALS IN THE LAST 30 YEARS
A salesman has eaten 12,000 Big Macs over the last 30 years - and yet appears to be healthy. Dennis Rosinlof says he eats the McDonald’s burger with fries ten times a week - sometimes twice a day - on his travels, and only takes a break on Sundays. But despite having a fondness for the 930 calorie Big Mac meal, Rosinlof is actually a slim 165 pounds and healthy. He is 64, six feet tall, 165 pounds and has a good cholesterol level. Rosinlof said: “Conservatively, I’ve eaten at least 12,000 Big Macs over the last 30 years. I don’t get tired of it. I look forward to going to McDonald’s every single time.” Roslinof described the Big Mac as a “fantastic sandwich” and said that he starts the week off on Mondays with one of the burgers on his way home from work. He eats two on Tuesday - one on the way into work then one on the way home - and one on Wednesday for breakfast. On Thursdays he will eat two Big Macs, two on Fridays and always two on Saturdays. His only break is on Sundays when his wife Lauri cooks him and his family a meal.
The first day of fall is right around the corner (September 22). Your favorite season says a lot about your personality, according to neurologist Alan Hirsch, M.D.
IF YOU PREFER…
WINTER – You’re a blues-proof nurturer. Confident and independent, you have a rare sense of self. In the winter, we’re more socially isolated, and it takes a certain kind of strength to enjoy being alone. Yet as independent as you are, you’re also highly nurturing. Indeed, winter speaks to your sentimental side, evoking childhood memories of time spent at the kitchen table and snuggling around the TV. And if you manage to stay cheerful during the most severe snowstorm, chalk it up to your nurturing side.
SPRING – You’re a diligent optimist. Vibrant and outgoing, you epitomize the effervescence of spring. We evolved to see the flowering season as the end of winter’s sensory deprivation and as a beacon of hope. But make no mistake: While you’re idealistic and tend to live in the moment, your head is not in the clouds. A strong work ethic keeps you striving toward your goals – and it’s never stronger than in spring: According to a recent study, the best temperature for sustaining a good, productive mood is a springlike 72 degrees.
SUMMER – You’re an adaptable extrovert. With its extra dose of daylight, summer is a true mood-booster. And the get-up-and-go spirit the sun sends your way fuels your energetic personality. Summer is a time of great social activity; you have to be self-assured and outgoing to enjoy all the activities it has to offer. And because the freedom of summer defies stringent scheduling, it demands a laid-back personality that can go with the flow. Indeed, you thrive on the unexpected – be it an impromptu pool party or last-minute road trip. That’s why the season of endless sun is your happiest time.
FALL – You’re a multifaceted multitasker. With the crisp fall air comes a brisk and busy schedule, and your ability to adapt and thrive during this transition makes you a true doer, comfortable juggling lots of balls. Intelligent people tend to like autumn because it’s full of divergent stimuli. That includes the color orange, a proven energy-booster that helps you keep all those balls in the air. From changing leaves to apple-picking to taking in the new music and theater season, the bounty of choices makes you feel more alive in fall, when the flush in your cheeks comes from doing what you love.
