Re: Tuesday, January 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

[Playing from the archive] I got this FJ! right pretty quickly, but I first had to persuade myself that they weren't going for one of the Carolinas and New York (named for James II, brother of Charles II, who was Duke of York before becoming king). Then I decided that there was no way it could be ju...

Lefty guitarist from Seattle is a TS at $200? I said Jimi, but did so hesitantly because I thought they were looking for a group due to the category. That may have thrown the contestants off as well. I was hoping for a straight-up category on rock supergroups. But I had trouble pre-calling any othe...

Stinker of an FJ clue... in the KJV but not in other translations...
Thanks for pointing this out. If anyone asks, I now have a perfectly good excuse for missing this FJ. Of the four or five Bibles in my house none are KJV :)

Re: Tuesday, November 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is it overly pedantic of me to point out that in "Eponymous Elements $800" Andy (slightly, not enough to make his response wrong) mispronounced philosopher George's name? The city (and the element) is "BERK-", but the philosopher is "BARK-".

https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status ... 92288?s=19 - Here's another swing and a miss from TV columnist Gary Deeb, sometime before the show's premiere.
Yeah, I used to regularly read Deeb's column in the Chicago Tribune, and pretty much lost all respect for him as far back as 1974.

So, I thought he was Andrew Chaikin, Brown '78, who graduated a year ahead of me. But he's not; he's Andrew Chaikin '91. It's very weird that there are two well-known Andrew Chaikins that are Brown alumni. Andrew Chaikin '78 is renowned as an astrophysicist whose book was turned into the mini-serie...

The FJ! clue had me right for the wrong reason as I had a Charter Oak path to a quick solve. That's okay as J! does not requite someone to show their work.
That was my path, too.
Same here

Judges:. Equilibrium for Balance? :?: I also said 'equilibrium'. Although I suppose it doesn't matter whether I get credit for it; it would change my LT total from 10,000 to 11,200, so still not enough for the 4th podium win. Did anybody else think The Young and the Reckless $1600 was too easy? I c...

I was very disappointed we didn't get a Dalek impersonation on "Exterminate." It's like some people don't even want to go viral.
I did a Dalek impersonation at home, is that close enough? :D

Re: Tuesday, May 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game highlights one of my pet peeves. In the designation of bills "H.R" does not stand for "House Resolution"; it stands for "House of Representatives". This should be obvious from the fact that Senate bills are called simply, e.g. "S.252", and not "S.R. 252"

I would have known this FJ! in 1985, and I would have known this FJ! when I was 10 years old. But my father was a corporate attorney for a Fortune 500 company incorporated in Delaware. :)
