How very true!|
Just now, I was watching an episode of the BBC quiz show, The Weakest Link. One of the contestants, Barbara, was a very "good" person. She had a great general knowledge; she followed the rules of the game to the letter; she voted fair and square. Another contestant, Marc, voted off potentially his worst opponent, a university student who had an astounding range of knowledge, through a tactical gameplay, when the latter was not the weakest link in that round. When Marc was questioned why he had chosen to vote off that particular person instead of the real weakest link in that round, he said - Because he's too good and I can't beat him in the last round, but I can handle the other two. The host then asked, "So you are making a public display of your fear?" "Yes." "Do you think it's immoral?" "No."
Both Barbara and Marc made it to the final round and they played against each other. I prayed that Barbara would win. But, no, Barbara was beaten, simply because she was unlucky with the questions she got. The questions were randomly assigned, and she got a rougher deal. Marc won and walked away with 3000 pounds.
No good person goes unpunished. Ha!
