Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Great to hear of Zoom invites from places that aren’t SoCal but I’m guessing that us Canadians will probably be shut out of them for a while as the closed border will make it impossible to tape for now. (It won’t be the first time that circumstances beyond our control shit out Canadians but I hope t...

"Self-denial" was accepted. How is "self-discipline"?

Well, if you pass the Zoom audition you’ll get a clicky pen in the Green Room!

That’s my destination anyways!

The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

A test that you can take anytime while it’s up and, of interest to many of us, you can take it even if you took January’s. (Better score of the two counts)

Just as easy as the other two, thankfully.
Not as much when it's actually on the line. I think I missed five (i.e. gave a blank answer) this time. In the previous two, just for fun, I skipped only one in the two days combined.

it's not the most efficient pangram
It is the most Jeopardy! pangram though, and this the best.

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

To show off, especially in the main seating area of a sports venue "Grandstand" is given, but how about "showboat"? It doesn't quite match the "main seating area" TOM, but there's precedent for a clue where it's correct despite being against the TOM. (I'm guessing it also doesn't quite fit as a rhy...

Canada wasn't a country yet! Says who? When do you think Canada was a country anyways? (Btw if you think about it, at least for new (ie post WWII) countries, they need to make the anthem before independence anyways. Or what are they going to play at the Independence Day ceremonies?

When we saw the FJ category, Mrs Penguin immediately began singing O Canada as I fast-forwarded through the ads. At a certain point she got the words a little wrong, so I corrected her.
That depends, maybe she was singing the new lyrics after last year’s change.

Of course I have no idea about their national anthem along with 190+ other countries.
Considering I currently have 438 national anthems on my site (of which I probably know just shy of 400 in one way or another), not knowing 190 is good! That leaves about 50% you do know! ;)

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I think the passing score was well above 35 at TN to keep numbers down. But no complaints here- they came to TN to get better players. To get on the show, be good at trivia and be good tv. That would certainly explain why people I would have expected to pass the test didn't do so. I look at it this...

I wonder what percentage of people here watch any of the summer reruns. For me, it's a 6-week break and 30 extra minutes of free time every weekday.
