I don’t give a damn about gender or attractiveness or previous work or commercials, pick the best person for the job.


Hear, hear.
Sure, whatever that means.

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

Pretty bad. Constant off screen giggling was weird & she is not attractive. Plus she has some big pharma ads running which adds to the overkill. She was okay on BBT but enough is enough. Please tell me more about how the host gets to choose what ads run during the show on each and every station acr...

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

In any case, surely production of her sitcom will interfere with her being a permanent host. How so? Schedules can be changed on both sides if necessary. I don't know enough about it, but it's never stopped others, so here's my speculation. I think Jeopardy! would have to accommodate the sitcom, to...

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

I thought she did an excellent job. Her energy and enthusiasm matched Buzzy’s. Her knowledge base might not be as good as his, but she might be more relatable. As a younger female host, she might also expand the franchise beyond people such as yours truly. The only thing that was at all offputting ...

Re: Friday, June 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tinnitus was pronounced incorrectly. It's TIN-ə-təs. The British and healthcare professional pronunciation tends to sound like “TIN-ni-tus.” Listen. While the American and layperson pronunciation often sounds like “ti-night-tus” or “tin-NYE-tus.” Hear it here. So which one is right? Neither, either...

Yeah I’ve never heard of story telling coach either. Nor I, but I guess that's why some people get rich and some don't. I get the sense it's sort of a motivational speaker for individuals, especially in business. Not so much to get a better slot on The Moth. https://www.thechiefstoryteller.com/coac...

The book is Bridge OVER, the movie is Bridge ON. Why that wasn't negged, I have no clue. Sure it was published that way, but the French title is Le Pont de la rivière Kwaï , which could be translated either way... P.S. Apparently there were some editions, in the U.K. at least, published with David ...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

The new season of "The Chase" premiered tonight. There were a few differences. Each question in the cash builder is now worth $10,000 instead of $25,000, and Sara is now reading the questions at a faster pace than in Season 1. The difficulty of cash builder questions had also died down. Some of the...

Here's a possible clue: This 17th C. author wrote of "that sea-beast...which God of all his works Created hugest that swim th' ocean-stream." That triggers an association nicely.

BTW, Hobbes is not even referring to Leviathan here, the sea serpent cited elsewhere in Job by name, that serves Hobbes as a symbol for civil society. The passage is discussing beliefs about the afterlife, and is apparently meant to refer to the earthly Giants of early Hebrew scripture (the Nephilim...

Well, looks as though I was wrong about how this FJ would poll here. Currently at roughly 50%. I just don't get it, a work that's been asked about many times in the archive in a very narrow category where they only ask about a very few different books. I could believe 50% by itself, but what boggle...

Instead of locking onto the giants underwater, I spent too much time trying to penetrate the murkiness of the quote. I wanted to know who the "they who dwell with them" are. (I was thinking Gulliver might be one?) It looks like in most translations, they are "the dead" who groan beneath the waters. ...

From this show I learned how Robert Henri pronounced his name (Hen-rye). Kudos to MB or the staff for getting it right.
