The mnemonic I've always hear for those cave thingies is:

Stalagmites stand with might.

Stalactites hang on tight.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I almost missed that LBJ one, too. "Dimly lit cabin" made me think of a log cabin and I had trouble getting off of that. An airplane cabin didn't occur to me at all, but I guessed LBJ simply off the fact that a President's first decisions would likely normally be in the White House Add in that LBJ w...

Welll... They asked about the one and only thing I know for certain about ShakesCrap (the longest-play fact, not the most-filmed fact). I was amazed anyone missed it.

Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

It is my understanding that so far, only Ken and Mike are being seriously considered for the permanent gig at this point. why is that your understanding? Considering Mike is the EP, who is it that would be "seriously considering" him? Mike is also the EP of Wheel of Fortune, so would he do both EP ...

Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

... I thought Mayim Bialik (forgive me if I'm butchering the spelling of either or both names) was supposed to be next. What's up? I just saw a blurb announcing Aaron Rodgers is up next. Hey, I'm not ready for him to be quitting his current job, no matter now he does in his audition. Rodgers next, ...

Re: Wednesday, March 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had some trouble figuring out that oddly constructed sentence in the FJ clue. But once I did, IKEA came up as a good guess to make, even though like several on here have said, I've never heard the phrase "IKEA effect" before.

Hm... Does my above sentence equal the awkwardness of the FJ clue?

Re: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Easy FJ! (for a change, at least with me...) City of Angels = L.A. Dunno why that messed with a few minds in here. L.A. Olympics 1932, 1984. All I had to do was the math, which I did several times to make sure since I have occasionally screwed up simple math in the past. Numbers are not my friend.

I've never heard of Carrara in my life. Don't even feel bad for missing it. +1 on that... Overall, this game seemed like TOC-level difficult, except for Acapulco, for which Katie rightly admonished the contestants, and "Hardening of the Arteries". But of course, there were a couple Triple Stumpers ...

Definitely nottttttttttt a rock n roll fan here, but with the bit that said this greatest hits album had gotten on the charts for over ten years led me to think "Well, it has to be somebody I've heard of" and not give up. No chance I was gonna remember what act might have performed an "optimistic an...

4 of 5, didn't remember that nickname for Jeter.

I broke a nasty 8-game FJ! losing streak with this one... I didn't think it was easy, but I was surprised it ended up being a TS.

Of course, there's the long, long history of J! contestants being weak in the sports categories, so there is that...

How the heck did none of the Master Minds get the moon? Were they even thinking? About weight? The tides? An anemometer measuring the speed of breathing is new to me.

Hmm... Never considered that a "slur word". As a matter of fact, one of my favorite genres of music is widely known as "Gypsy Jazz", a specific type of swing-oriented music as popularized by the great Django Reinhardt. He called it that, and so do nearly all of today's practitioners of the art, such...

It's unfortunate that a Jeopardy clue used a word that's widely seen these days as a slur.
What clue was this?
The one about flamenco.
I just went back and looked at that clue. What slur word?

I'm curious if anyone who got one of the two was thrown by the "opposite sides" stipulation? E.g. you guessed Monaco/Turkey or Algeria/Israel. I guess I was. I got Monaco right away, and immediately looked east instead of south. I ended up with Egypt as my second guess, and that's after I crossed o...

I'm no geography buff, yet I knew that one. I was quite surprised that this one got past the contestants.
