We will discuss that possibility for those who just wanted to play but don't want the prize.
You sure you don't have a friend or family member you could give it to, Webb?

Somewhat related to GIGO: In the early days of computing there was the fairly well-known statement that "computers can calculate faster than an army of mathematicians at desk calculators, but they can also make errors faster than an army of mathematicians at desk calculators." I don't know who said this, or whether it came out before GIGO.
