Re: PSA: If you are in Ontario or Alberta you can stream Jeopardy live for free.

The downside to this is you have to be watching the livestream when it’s on (or download it, but I can’t think of an app off the top of my head that can do that easily). The good thing about the bunker/Reddit (and PVRs for that matter) is that you can watch it any time at your convenience. True...b...

Re: FJs for the 10/2/17 week

10/2 I said "the guy who painted American Gothic" -- couldn't think of the name.

Got Mandela but no others. Guessed Branagh for the Shakespeare one.

PSA: If you are in Ontario or Alberta you can stream Jeopardy live for free.

I hope this is ok to post. I have been staying with my mom who has cable for the past month, but I'm going back home tomorrow where we don't have it. I was googling to find out if YesTV is an OTA channel so I could get it with a digital antenna -- but I found instead that they stream their channel o...

Re: Wednesday, October 4, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Plus, knowing about art and literature is so outdated in today's society As I clarified above, I wasn't intending to trash math or math lovers with my comment (actually, I was suggesting that the contestants should have had more math knowledge), and I don't think there's any need to throw art and l...

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

Again, how was I supposed to know to stick with the K's? I think it's a decent assumption that the place listed wasn't the only K city in Michigan, since it started with KA. If it were "Kyrgyzstan City" that might be a different story. Even if it were the only one, K is at least where you should st...

Re: Wednesday, October 4, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

On the other hand, it makes me wonder how the judges would have ruled in the "Three Straight Vowels" category if Austin had pronounced "lieutenant" as "LEF- TEN -ANT" (as the British). My guess is that it would be fine because "sherbert" is a variant spelling but "lieutenant" is always spelled the ...

Integration and Derivatives missed. That is weak. There are plenty of math-philes on Jeopardy, and they reap in the money.

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

Maybe there isn't. It's always the same alphabet. I did this with the "Alphabetically next" state capitals in this game : . On $200, I skipped right ahead to "Augusta Av, Aw, Ax… got nothing." "Lincoln… Lind, Line, Linf… nothing." "Jefferson City… Jeg, Jeh, Jei, Jej… Nothing." "Boise… Boj, Bok, Bol...

Was not impressed with the calculus knowledge from the contestants.
No kidding! :shock: I flunked high school calculus and still ran the category. It was really just vocabulary. I guess Jeopardy doesn't attract math geeks.

Re: Wednesday, October 4, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

:shock: no final for Austin! I didn't get the FJ, but my mom did. Coryat: $23,100.(That seems wrong now that I look at it...shouldn't it be a multiple of 200?) Ran the math again, it's $22,600. Being Canadian, despite our exposure to American media, I miss a lot of the Americana clues. The LA catego...

Re: What do you guys think of Austin Rogers so far? [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

I don't find anything wrong with him. He's a little too reckless at times (why did he wager more than 33,600 on FJ on Tuesday), but people often make math mistakes under the lights. It will be interesting to see how far he goes, and whether or not he'll be in November's TOC. Disagree that it was a ...

Felt bad for Amy that he had to go up aginst a superchamp cause with a better draw I think she could won a few games.
I was afraid for a bit she'd be his Zerg and end him. Oh me of little faith!

Re: Tuesday, October 3, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got the FJ! Pretty happy about that. I tracked my Coryat for the first time too -- 33k.

I love Austin. This is an exciting season. Glad I started watching again.

I think he's put a temporary halt to the outchange.
Newbie here - define "outchange" please? (I did Google, no useful hits.)
