I happened to catch a few seconds of a game show while playing with the television remote (clicker to most of you) the other night. It was fascinating to see how engaged the television audience was as they watched a man they didn't know make a gamble that could, according to the show's producers, make him or cost him thousands of dollars. Should he make an attempt to answer the next question or just take the money and run? What would he do? The pregnant pause seemed to last forever.
