RAY: They were melting chocolate in the microwave. If you enter one-0-0, the next number that comes up is 59.

If you put in 90 the next number is 89.

TOM: So 90 is bigger than 100.

RAY: Right. 90 is a minute and a half and 100 is a minute. So, who's our winner this week?

TOM: The winner this week is Carl Eschelbach from Deer Park, Illinois. And for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Carl is going to get a 26 dollar ngift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at Car, with which he can get a Car Talk Plaza baseball shirt.
