Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Roger Clemens twice struck out 20 batters in a game. Kerry Wood and Max Scherzer each did it once.

I'm liking the Mayim Bialik idea. Well-versed and funny. She has a doctorate!

When they revealed Dusty's response to FJ, did anyone else breath a sigh of relief that he hadn't used a more specific word for a female dog?
Assuming it's the word you mean, they've used it on the show before.

Are Lamaze classes even still a thing? Seems like the talk now is all about doulas and midwives. (I don't have children, if that isn't obvious.)

U.S. STATE CAPITAL NAMESAKES Of all the people after whom a state capital is named, he was born the earliest. Who was St. Paul? (If PR were to become a state, the new correct response would be San Juan) The most recently born might be more obvious: Joe Juneau, French-Canadian prospector, 1836-1899

It is funny that when we had the Religious Words FJ on 11/26, the topic came up on this board about FJs with short or single-letter correct responses, and then a single-letter response was accepted for this FJ.

Has there even been a FJ that ended in an exclamation point (that wasn't quoting someone else's words)? Seemed like an added bit of cheekiness from the writers.

It so happens that Moby-Dick has been a minor subject of interest on Lit Twitter recently (I suspect in response to this tweet). Being at the front my mind + revenge + date made this an easy solve.

Re: J! hosting plans post Alex

They seem to be reading the room pretty well. Enough people, I think, want their Jeopardy! in some form and there doesn't seem to have been a clear pipeline in place for who would succeed Alex. Ken was the clear first choice, and I imagine that Jimmy from the Clue Crew counts as part of the "family"...

Re: OBIT: Alex Trebek

I am grateful, knowing how debilitating his illness could be, that he continued to do what he loved to do, and what we loved watching him do, right up until the end. It seems like so much work to talk that much episode after episode, and he kept going.

I call hubris on the $5000 daily double. He seemed to expect all of the South America questions to be extremely easy. I call giant eye roll. How dare he try to win the game?!?! If you consider that Suriname (Dutch Guiana) took the other Guianas out of play, the Colombia clue mentioned two other cou...

Since "type" was not only in the clue but the genus term, would simply "A" have been accepted?

Re: Monday, October 12, 2020 FJ Poll (SPOILERS)

The oddly vague wording of the clue ("around 2010" rather than "in 2010") made me think some kind of periodic insect that might have been so spread out it couldn't be pinned to a single year. I said locusts.
