How many SSA numbers are there now? Quiz show contestants: know the blogs

Today (Wednesday Sept. 16), “Who wants to be a millionaire” had a $250000 question, how many social security numbers have been assigned since the Social Security System was invented in the 1930s? The answer was 457 million, choice A. I guessed 575 million, as did the help line. The contestant took his $100000.

Sooner or later, there will be a quiz question based on something in one of these blogs. I’m pretty sure that “don’t ask don’t tell” has appeared on Jeopardy as an answer. Maybe they’ll come up with COPA, reputation defender, asymmetry, free entry, filial responsibility laws, defined benefit plans, defined contribution plans, social security offset, social security bridge as answers to “creative” questions. Maybe even “do ask do tell”. Stay tuned. If you want to go on a quiz show, study the blogs.
