White Woman on ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ Uses Phone-a-Friend to Call 911

1 Share
punk, hardcore, who wants to be a millionaire

LOS ANGELES — Game show contestant Karen Graham used her “phone-a-friend” lifeline to call local police on the $500 question during a taping of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” members of the production staff confirmed.

“Hello? 911? I have 30 seconds to tell you that this African American game show host is threatening my life with his intense line of questioning,” Graham said after being asked ‘Which United States president was in power for the duration of the American Civil War?’ “He keeps yelling. I think he might be on drugs. This whole television show — this whole audience — needs to be arrested right now! I’m being attacked!”

Production of the episode, guest hosted by Idris Elba, was halted when uniformed police officers stormed the set using a modified tank and shut down the production.

“It’s always a shame when someone loses on the first question, but this one was especially upsetting, because two officers pulled guns on me and told me I was going to jail for a long time,” said Elba. “Thank god I was filming the whole incident on my cell phone, as well as seven $250,000 cameras, or else I would have no proof that I didn’t do anything wrong.”

Members of the Los Angeles police department conducted a brief investigation and ultimately left without making any arrests.

“When we got the call that there was an out of control black man attacking a white woman we suited up in riot gear, grabbed as many guns as we could, and hauled ass over to that studio,” said lieutenant Mark Hopkins. “We were extremely disappointed to find out that this was just a false alarm. We hate leaving without making any arrests, we even tried to plant drugs on a few of the crew members, but it didn’t work out.”

“But at the end of the day I’m glad we were able to help that young woman feel safe! As an officer of the law, that’s all I ever want to do,” he added. “Now get the fuck back and against the wall.”

At press time, a GoFundMe profile was created entitled “Get Karen Graham The $1,000,000 Owed To Her” that had already surpassed $3 million after being featured on a Fox News segment.

Gain instant performance boosts as Brotli comes to Netlify Edge

1 Comment

Netlify Edge, our globally distributed, intelligent CDN quietly and automatically delivers abilities to developers which were once only within reach of enterprises with big budgets and expert consultants.

Working in concert with Netlify Build (our integrated CI/CD), it delivers things like instant cache invalidation, instant rollbacks, edge-routing, and automatic asset compression and caching.

Developers don’t need to be CDN or caching experts to make this happen. It just works.

While automated gzip compression has been present since the beginning. Performance-minded developers have also been telling us how valuable it would be to add support for Brotli too. We heard them, and we agree.

Pass the Brotli

We are delighted to announce that assets delivered by Netlify Edge are now automatically compressed with Brotli encoding for even smaller asset sizes and decompression efficiency.

Brotli compression has gained widespread browser support and is particularly effective for text-based files such as HTML, JavaScript and CSS assets. Developers don’t need to take any action for their sites to start benefitting. Netlify Edge is already encoding and caching suitable assets with Brotli, and delivering correctly compressed assets depending on the requesting browser.

If you were looking, you might already have spotted signs of this upgrade. And the visitors to your sites have already started enjoying the benefits.

Better performance, less bandwidth

The smaller file sizes generated by Brotli compression doesn’t just mean that files are delivered to your users more rapidly, it also means that you’ll use less bandwidth to service the same number of requests. Nice.

Median Brotli / gzip comparisons, according to Akamai’s testing:

  • JavaScript files compressed with Brotli are 14% smaller than gzip.
  • HTML files are 21% smaller than gzip.
  • CSS files are 17% smaller than gzip.

Do what?

You don’t need to do anything to start using Brotli compression. Just as with our automatic gzip compression. It just works.
