Re: Friday, April 4, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Not being a 'Hunger Games' fan, I'd say a Swedish or Italian clue would be easier to understand than the last couple pages of this thread.(Just once, could somebody write an apocalyptic fantasy where characters don't have such stereotypically 'exotic' names?...'Bill and Ted's Non-Non Heinous Armage...

Re: Friday, April 4, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Here is how the writers made the clue about it: "It was one of those pictures... so contrived that the eyes follow you...beneath it" was this 5-word quote. That's not what was on my screen, because what you wrote almost makes sense. This is what I saw: "IT WAS ONE OF THOSE PICTURES...SO CONTRIVED T...

Re: Friday, April 4, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm reading this at our state home school convention meeting. I had to put my hand over my mouth so I wouldn't laugh out loud. So...Roger reminds me of Beetee, and Ken is...? Ken and Brad are the Careers. Brutus and Gloss, or Brutus and Enobaria. If Dan is Katniss, Roger can be Peeta since they are...

Re: Friday, April 4, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wonder if Dr. J had that tiara in her pocket.. (Mine's way better than that.)You can imagine my outrage when Maria was promised one and Dan ended up with one! I had to buy my own! Did ya notice my Mockingjay pin bringing Dan luck? Is there a story behind that? I was wondering when I saw that on T...

Re: Tuesday, November 22, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Understood. I just wasn't sure if the "new" $2 bills were still issued, or if they'd also been discontinued again. Technically, you can still get a William, Grover, or James. Just not from any bank. Wow, just saw the clue again- is "circulating" really the phrasing, verbatim? Yikes. That might've c...

Re: About This Board

Jeopardy! airs at an obscenely early time in my area, so my computer recording the show is the only way I can watch it. One side effect of that is that I always skip the commercials and messages. But I neglected to do that during Wednesday's show, and I noticed that there was a "visit the official J...

Re: Tuesday, November 15, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

There is still a lot of luck, though. Had Tom found the DDs and gotten them right, things might have played out different (at least, the FJ round would not have been nearly so boring :P). And had DDs not come into play at all these two days, I wonder how things would have turned out. So in addition ...

Re: Monday, November 14, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also went with State for FJ, but I'm weak in that category. However, my consolation prize for the game was picking up the Lach Trash on silk. That was my first thought as well because State is one of those few cabinet departments that we actually hear about on a regular basis. But then I remember...

I replayed that a few times too, and you are right: he replaced the "t" with an "n" (or as we computer scientists would write, s/t/n/). Link

Wow. That was really reckless and gutsy. But it paid off.

Re: Friday, November 4, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS

That was a really difficult board, in comparison to the past two days. That hemostat tease-out was great. I got as far as "hemo", but had no idea where to go from there. And I think I felt the same as John and Tom with respect to that FJ. :(

Re: Big Bang Theory Poll

I have met someone before who was very Sheldon-like. He used precise language with word choice and terminology that was fairly formal. He was pedantic and had a bit of OCD. He had some of the same mannerisms. Oh, and he was a physicist. :) (as for me, I think I'm a Leonard)
