In hindsight it may have been a mistake to move TCONA to Tanzania.
Even though they renamed the country "Tconazania"?

I would not want to go up against Brian in court.
He said others at his firm are smarter.
That was referring to trivia; I meant like on a case.

It’s all over the world. I’m going to Tanzania next year. I hope they don’t let fraud go through.
Uh oh. I'm supposed to be there in July. I'm skeptical about us being able to go, but we have put down a deposit.

As Opus said, off-topic political posts belong in Reretaken Down. Any further posts here will be moved there or removed.

My favorite part of driving from Reno to Sacramento was going by the Donner Pass (technically the pass itself is just off of I-80). Built up an appetite.

Did anyone know "June gloom"? That seemed like a very California-centric clue.
I'm with you on that one. It made sense from the clue, but I'd NHOI.

Is there a good reason to know that the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway is in the Philippines?
I got it from Subic. Subic Bay is the site of a former major U.S. naval base.
That's how I got it.
Clark Field was also a U.S. air base.

I have someone to whom I text the FJ! category and clue every night. She got LBJ immediately. I said only one of the contestants got it correct, and she responded, "The other two need to watch 'The Crown.'"
We finally got to that episode ... last night. A few days late. Crud.

Re: Ken Jennings as a Host Poll

I voted for "Sorry, but I hope they find someone else." No offense to Ken, but the reason I don't want him as permanent host is because then, anyone who Ken played against would be ineligible to be invited to future Jeopardy! tournaments because of the 1950s quiz show scandals, and I don't want the...

I think that obviously political posts should be in Reretaken Down instead of this thread. Not a criticism of you, Matt, I just think it will work better that way.

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

That Verne question was some serious negbait. I dunno, both parts of the clue indicated a nautical theme to me, though I had a feeling at least one of them would say ATWIED. 80 Days has travel by both train and steamer, so it fits perfectly -- the steamers go "Full Steam Ahead" and then they're bac...

My closed caption is still spoiling every clue before KJ has finished reading it in some cases, and always before it is spoken. Anyone else? Or do most boardies eschew the CC? This might be an interesting poll question when we have a slow poll week. My CC is always on, and it has not been having th...
