(Alex: And Emily, before I ask you to make your wager, I have some good news for you. One of the joys of hosting this program is that I am continuously learning things. You gave a response a while ago of "hape" in that CLIMBING category. Hape, we find out, is "high altitude pulmonary edema" and that's what we were going for. So you taught us something, and as a result you add $1,200 to your total, so you're now at $4,000 as you make your wager. And you realize, of course, that if you risked it all and responded correctly, you and Alan would be tied for the lead.)
