* On the game show ''Series/{{Cram}}'', contestants had 24 hours to cram facts into their heads in the show's version of homeschool from hell. This was what they ''didn't'' want to be, but could if they weren't careful. Same with the Miss Pickwick bonus round in which they listened to facts recited in a sleepy voice in a relaxing environment designed to try to lull them into nodding off.
