There are worse ways to spend a weeknight watching television at 7 p.m.  It's Wheel of Fortune time, and millions of people are glued to the screen playing along with the contestants.

I never cease to be amazed at some people who  just have a gift for solving the puzzles on the show.  I'm usually clueless.

Take Emil, who somehow pulled a rabbit out of his hat and solved this seemingly impossible puzzle.

For his efforts, Emil pocketed another $45,000 on top of the nearly $20,000 he had already won.

Sometimes, it's better to be lucky than good.
