Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Chris got the mayor, NBA player and river on fire while Nichole got the institution & heart surgery. It must be a fun honor for the news people to get viewed beyond their local area. It was weird that Nichole introduced herself on the $800 clue and not the $400 clue that was picked later. As they w...

Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Are the media clues on j-archive supposed to link to pictures/video? Eventually they will. It's a matter of going through the feed and pulling out each individual clue to get the capture. It's not a quick process. None of the links have worked for something like the last 6 years. I'm not sure that ...

Thank goodness for Denzel, because I missed all the rest of that category.

Pretty much an instaget FJ. I don't have a clue where in NV that Carson City is located, but why not go with the gold rush and the Silver State.

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.

Poll request: this Triple Stumper:
"G"-OGRAPHY $1600: K2 is also known as this, from the name of the mountain's original surveyor
I would have easily gotten it if it were the other way around, but I would have needed a minute or two to get it as asked.

Kahn should have been BMSed but whatever. If anyone fully understands the BMS policy you are smarter than me.
Yep. It's not like Khan is his last name.

I didn't know that the 6 was the price, but Motel 6 was the only thing I could come up with.

Music Class for $1,600 was HUGE negbait for "bottom". My only miss. I didn't know cellos have bridges.
The clue can't be negbait if it literally gives you the correct response within.

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't think Donesh should've been negged as the two different measurements implied uneven in the clue. :| Can't agree with that. Parallel bars are a specific piece of equipment (yes, I get that uneven bars are parallel, too, but they're two different things). I thought Jennifer might get negged f...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

Doing a quick eyeball and checking coordinates on Google maps, I put the distance from the Target Center to the nearest point of Canada at 198 mi. Detroit, Syracuse and Rochester are definitely closer.

I heard Cathy Pentecost. The FJ category was the Bible and Alex made a joke how she might have an advantage so that might be her name.

Re: J! archive - questions about clarification notes on clues

I'm pretty sure that clarification was added to the archive after I submitted my comment - and I'm glad to see it there. That does make the email response that I received surprising. Whatever is submitted as a correction is what is, verbatim, added to the clue, so the only real possibility is to re...

I am in a couple American history groups on Facebook so I have seen this mentioned there. But I agree it isn’t a great FJ. A little digging told me she has never met Biden. She also did not accompany her parents when they visited FDR. I was wondering why the clue specified “sitting” President. Was ...
