Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

The "why now?" is that Maggie left the week before and there's a new producer. If you were in the pool previously you should assume that you're going to get tired treading water. The big thing remains the photo. They want to see what you look like. The show is committed to being as visually diverse...

Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

I have to agree with Jeff. I usually work nights and yet somehow I find a way to take the test. Probably that month’s notice and all. You need to check your privilege as well here. Every year around test time, you'll see the show be the target of social media complaints from people who, often becau...

Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

I have to agree with Jeff. I usually work nights and yet somehow I find a way to take the test. Probably that month’s notice and all. On one hand, clearly what the show is doing right now isn’t working. Recent episodes have really been mediocre. On the other hand, I’m not really sure if this is goin...

“Jambo” is far more common as greeting than “mambo.”

Just a stinker of a game.

Yikes at some of those TSs. Weirdest part was that I though they were doing pretty well in the SJ round.

Re: Friday, January 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It wasn't really pinned... if the Duke of Edinburgh can be used then presumably any of his children or grandchildren can be used, as well. Then it becomes a game of "who is most likely to have consented to donate their DNA" and I would pick a younger person over an older person in a heartbeat. Agre...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The daily double was phrased a little oddly. I have attended actual football games at the actual Doak Campbell Stadium and I had to read the question twice before I was able to pick up on what they wanted.

Can someone tell me how they got to Communist Manifesto from the clue? I had nothing.
Thr first line of the Communist Manifesto is one of the most famous lines in all political writing:

“A spectre is haunting Europe - the spectre of communism.”

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For FJ #2 I had Napoleon and King George III. I blame the Bugs Bunny where he "teaches" his nephew Cyde about American History for making me think George III was short. :D I wrote Napoleon and Wellington then said wait, that’s not a world leader, tried to think of the contemporary British royal and...

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ireland was technically in union with Great Britain at the time. Stoker would’ve been a British citizen. However, he’s not really viewed as any more British than Wilde or Shaw would be. As a result, I think it’s a poorly worded question.

(I answered it correctly as a sort of “what else could it be?”)

Re: Wednesday, November 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

1 more guess for Bernoulli. Thank for getting FJ and the results up quick. Getting this right is a big plus for Francois. Shows he has deep knowledge. I would venture that this is probably a dream Final Jeopardy in a ToC context for a high school physics teacher. As a matter of fact, I recalled tha...
