Arthur Chu on Jeopardy

So, Arthur Chu has been causing a ruckus on Jeopardy with Alex Trebek. He's been choosing answers pretty much at random which is causing confusion for Alex Trebek and the other challengers. The people on Jeopardy usually go in order in each category for (a) some order and (b) to help Alex Trebek keep things straight.

However, with this powerful strategy, Mr. Chu has upset the status quo on Jeopardy and won over $100,000. Due to his success, he may even change the overall climate on Jeopardy by giving a winning formula to future competitors.

The Church has also disturbed the status quo of society by changing things up.

Someone who messed with the status quo, Dr. King (MLK), said that,
There was a time when the church was very powerful--in the time when the early Christians rejoiced at being deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Whenever the early Christians entered a town, the people in power became disturbed and immediately sought to convict the Christians for being "disturbers of the peace" and "outside agitators."' But the Christians pressed on, in the conviction that they were "a colony of heaven," called to obey God rather than man. Small in number, they were big in commitment. They were too God-intoxicated to be "astronomically intimidated." By their effort and example they brought an end to such ancient evils as infanticide and gladiatorial contests.
May the Church and other ecclesial communities continue to disturb the status quo where it will bring glory to God through justice. Where the Church and other ecclesial communities are an "archdefender of the status quo" or "a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion", may it restart with renewed "God-intoxication".
