Re: Tuesday, May 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Winnipeg and Black Sea seemed like negbait for Ontario and Caspian Sea. Oof, not really. Odessa is famously a Black Sea port; the Caspian Sea touches only Russia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Iran; and the J! writers never use "sea" unqualified to refer to the Caspian (if they use "sea...

Re: Tuesday, June 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Other than size, is there any reason whatsoever that should lead me to assume this was Concord NH instead of Concord VA? It's not like Virginia was a major source of early Presidents or anything ... Significance? Concord NH is the state capital; Concord VA is a burg of fewer than 1,500 that almost ...

I finally realized how I got FJ!! I knew right away that Cook had gone to HI, and, somehow, buried deep in my head was the fact that there's a feature on Alaska's coast called Cook Inlet.

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

They just had the college tournament so I doubt they want to rerun that so soon. So who knows what will happen. I just hope they don't cave to the social media masses and start airing a James-a-thon. That is my fear. He is in the middle of his run on Daytime Jeopardy if people want to see him. I wi...

That FJ was a big story at the time, so I'm not shocked that it was a triple get. It was a local story for me, so it's still an instage...

Nikki and Jane were quite the contrast for how they played. Jane reminded me of Alan Carver. https://millionaire.fandom.com/wiki/Alan_Carver
Should mention that Jane's in studio help was Louis Vertel.
TIL that L. Vertel works for Jimmy Kimmel as a writer.

Well, given the way things went, Joe was definitely, like a quote from the movie The Blues Brothers, on a mission from God.

Instaget FJ and then took a lap around Europe to make sure I wasn't missing something. I'm curious how this would have played if the category had been "World Borders".

The only Z store I've heard of is Zappo's.
The first "Z" retailer (well, e-tailer) to hit my brain was Zillo's.

Also, for the record, media companies (I'm 99% sure J!'s production company would fall within this) are exempt from the restrictions in LA County. Thus, the post-production workflow of the show isn't going to be prevented from happening. Looking over a summary of the state order, the nearest exempt...
