Editorial Reviews

ABC News looks at everyday experiences in freaky ways based on the bestselling book, "Freakonomics". The authors of the book, Steven Levitt and Steven Dubner, have teamed up with ABC News to challenge viewers with some strange riddles about the world we live in. Riddles that are explored include:
1. How is a beauty pageant contestant like a crack dealer?
2. How is an abortion like a prison? The authors say this riddle begins 30 years ago, when crime in much of America seemed out of control.
3. Can you put a price on looks? And if so, how can you test that?
4. If you were giving to charity, would you give more or less depending on who showed up at your door?
5. How is a child's car seat like a DVD player? The car seats protect children in car crashes. How would a DVD player do that?
6. How are consumers like Tamarin monkeys?
7. How is a black straight-A student like a Hollywood celebrity?
