Disney park borrows everything but Regis
The theme park is installing a look-alike set and will launch daily games sorry, Regis Philbin won't be on hand to host to emulate the hit ABC-TV game show, based in New York. Contestants will play for points, not dollars, and prizes range from Disney collectibles (pins, T-shirts, hats) to a grand prize of a trip to the Big Apple to view the real McCoy.

If you've never paused to appreciate your screwdriver, you may want to watch "Modern Marvels: Some Assembly Required Week" on The History Channel, June 25-28.
This four-part theme program will take a close-up look at everything that holds your home together duct tape to drill bits by tracing one of the oldest businesses in the country's history: the hardware store.
From the ordinary nail (which was once legal tender in America), to future computers and everything in between.
When it's all over, you'll probably want to take a hammer to lunch.
