Dammit. I went to the trouble of logging in and posting for the first time in months just to upload that clip!

Re: Monday, April 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have reasons local to me to think of Mr Rogers in this context, and fairly quickly.

There’s not much else for folks to go by other than “name considerate person on TV (and btw this person was on PBS, and is no longer alive.)”

Re: Tuesday, March 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Said Edwin Booth. Well, that's also a correct response... wonder how it would have been judged on the show. Ready to get ultra nitpicky? The letter was sent in 1835. Edwin was born in 1833, and John Wilkes was born in 1838. So at the time of the letter, he was a current father of Edwin and a future...

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

I don’t think it’s a bad question, but it is a bad Final Jeopardy question.

There is no perfect way to figure it out other than just knowing it, but if you recall that the Berlin games were in 1936 and WW2 canceled the 1940 and 1944 games, it gives you a fewer options to work with.

Re: Glenn Kagan Sues Sony For Age Discrimination

Look. The show clearly knows what it is doing. I’m sure there’s a sensible explanation.

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...

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.”

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.
