Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

Even though the "unavailable" message was shown on the home page, I was just able to take the test.

I'm in the Othello crowd along with Xiaoke - wrong side of Northern Italy, with Venice vs Genoa. I'm glad you mentioned this because I'd always assumed Othello was set in Spain because that's the country I associate with the Moors. I'll have to try to keep this fact filed away. Me too. On Xiaoke's ...

I was surprised Nibir was given a BMS opportunity on "desert"-->"high desert" when the category was "H.D."

This was certainly harder than the first two but not super-difficult. But if you don’t make the connection with grandma’s name you’re sunk. I did waste some time trying to make sense of her name being spelled backwards. However, given her book’s popularity in high school English, it would be a fine...

I was off by about 150 years, said John Peter Zenger. The quote itself seemed to be of no help.

I would have been in trouble as an NBA fan/Kansas alumnus had I missed The Process, but what confused me was the Kansas City Royals' rebuilding process over the early part of this decade was called the exact same thing. The team's GM once said "trust the process" at a press conference, and this phr...

He's back! Iain Armitage presented a clue.
Did they kidnap that kid? How many freaking clues did they record? :lol:
12 so far according to the archive. Feels like a lot more.

Alex is normally good with accents, but his Massachusetts one ("pahk your cah") wouldn't fool anyone.

For Arizona's state firearm I said "six-shooter." According to Wikipedia, it's actually a Colt Single Action Army revolver with "a revolving cylinder holding six metallic cartridges."

Random question but did anybody know what the lapel pin that was wearing was for? You just don't see many on the show wearing them.
I believe it was for Donate Life America (organ donation).

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

This strikes me as an FJ where the text of the clue demands a response with a specific spelling.

Re: FJs for the 12/16/19 week

I don't get at all how 'third wheel' is such a popular wrong answer. Carriages have four wheels, not two. Therefore a superfluous wheel would be the fifth wheel. : Having heard the term "third wheel" countless times and never "fifth wheel" will make you wonder if there's a type of carriage with two...

I overthought this and went with "registered to vote" since the date was September instead of November. I'm counting it as "close but no cigar..." :x Glad to see I wasn't the only one to go down that path. I should have taken the extra quarter second to realize that 1870 was not a presidential elec...

I use LEXIS-NEXIS for my work. A search for "anaphylaxic" brings up 118 hits with repeats, but mostly from news/wire articles. Here is one from UPI in which a pediatrician is quoted (note that he uses it as a noun as well, for a patient): A shot of adrenalin, such as that contained in the Epi-pen or...
