Re: Reretaken Down

Not counting Betty McGlown (who left the group while they were still The Primettes and before they were signed), nine different women performed as part of The Supremes; all are living except for Florence Ballard, who died in 1976.

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 1/8/2020 (SPOILERS)

Three triple stumpers in SJ. Then ELEVEN in DJ. All but the top row clue in FILM COMPOSERS went begging. More than a third of the DJ clues--including two that elicited two wrong guesses before the final shrug. Yet still every single clue got uncovered. Wow. Is that a record? The January 10, 2005 ep...

Jack said his sister was on four years and came in second to have bragging rights in the family. Jack was on today and came in second. If sis got her FJ! clue right then the family will need a tie breaker of scores entering the FJ! round.
She didn't.

Looks as though Jason got in exactly twice in DJ: on the first and last clues of the round. Has that ever happened before? Not that I expect an answer, but I'm continually amazed by what some folks here (looking at you, cheezguyty) seem able to either figure out or remember. I wasn't able to find a...

Dagmar betting $11,111 seems slightly familiar so perhaps cheezguyty can find a previous example of that bet? And I should have asked yesterday if the orderly $4,567 has ever occurred. Melissa Prepster in 2005 and Van Lane in 2010 both wagered $11,111 on Final Jeopardy. A year ago Noah Link ended t...

Twenty-five years after it was released, Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" tops the Billboard Hot 100. It is the first holiday song to top the chart since "The Chipmunk Song" ruled in 1959 and gives Carey her 19th number one, putting her just one behind the Beatles for the most all-ti...

ETA - According to Wiki, there's 3 official marks better than the unofficial Ditmar flight at 623 mph and even Ditmar beat it unofficially at 702 mph in 1948. And then Yeager's flight is also unofficial at "only" 670 mph in October 1947 followed by an 891 mph spanking in November. So, I still like ...
