Re: Who's Special #3

Thanks for all the hard work you've put into this, Paucle!

I would like to point out, however, that I got the Kermit Washington question, although you listed me in the "incorrect" column for it. :)

Re: Monday, April 8, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Mark Richardson: $2,200-$800=$1,400 Anne Hardimon: $9,400+$0=$9,400 Salvo Candela: $20,100-$1,200=$18,000, now three day champ with $66,195 I was sitting here thinking, "Salvo over-wagered from first place, and no one called him out on it??" Then I realized that it should say he ended up with $1890...

Re: Thursday, April 4, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Miami is actually a small part of Miami-Dade County. I was quite surprised when I found out how few people live in Miami proper. Which city do you think is bigger, Miami or my humble home of Fort Worth, Texas? Fort Worth, whose state I bet many Americans couldn't even identify, has nearly twice the ...

"Citrullus - diminutive of Citrus, said to be in allusion to the shape of fruits and color of flesh resembling those characters in fruits of the orange or citron," according to what I'm sure is a fascinating read, The Standard Cyclopedia Of Horticulture Vol. 2 . Citrullus made me first think not of ...

Have the FJs been getting easier? An analysis

I went through all the FJ polls for Season 29 and compiled them into a spreadsheet. To make sure we're comparing apples to apples, I removed all tournament games. (Yes, I used Excel. Yes, I know it's inferior to Minitab and SPSS. Deal with it.) Graph 1 This first graph shows the % correct on the JBo...

Re: Wednesday, March 27, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't know if I've ever seen so much negativity towards a contestant as there was towards Colby, but he took great pleasure in sticking it to those "jackholes", laughing and eyebrow-arching all the way to the bank with his $350,000. ...And he also enjoyed proving wrong everyone here who put him in...

Re: Jeopardy Contestants

Haha, I actually had a dream last night where TPTB realized they made some sort of mistake in one of my games after it aired and allowed me to go back on and compete again... on the same board! It was weird. I would love to go back on the show, although I know it'll never happen. Even if they do hol...

Re: Monday, March 25, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

One could argue that spelling "Singin'" as "Singing" leaves all pronunciations of the present participle suffix available, including the correct one as originally written, whereas spelling "Waiting" as "Waitin" eliminates the one pronunciation the playwright intended. I have to admit a mistake earl...

Re: Monday, March 25, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It was in my qf game in the J! Teachers Tournament that Diana North was negged for her response of "Waitin' for Godot." Her response affected the pronunciation of the title. I get that. But since " Singin' " is a shortened form of singing, I guess that's the reason why both are acceptable. I don't ...

Re: Nazis, racists and mobsters, oh my!

I used that list a few years ago to augment my viewing knowledge and made it through all of them. Very few that I regretted watching -- foremost among them, Birth of a Nation. While I can fully understand why you would regret watching it, I actually wouldn't mind watching it, solely because of he h...

Your average college sports fan could probably give you the city of almost every major state university in the country, plus a lot of the private ones, depending on how big their athletics programs are.

Re: Wednesday, March 20, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Interesting indeed that "Bush Sr." would be accepted, since he is not a Senior, nor is George W. a Junior. They're usually rather picky on names (remember when Colby got retroactively negged for giving F.W. de Klerk's full name and saying the Germanic Friedrich Wilhelm instead of the Dutch Frederic ...

I called this FJ the Let's Screw the Jew Clue. Never heard that story before, though if they had put more of that story into Jesus Christ Superstar, I would have gotten it.

In terms of all-time winnings during regular season play, Drew's $138,100 puts him in 19th place.
