Re: Monday, February 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Finnish is of the Finno-Ugric language group, while the other Scandinavian languages are Indo-European.

I once knew a Jeopardy champion whose favorite adjective is finno-ugric.

I wonder if they would have accepted Newfoundland and Labrador for the Quebec clue. The mountain that Quebec calls Mont D'Iberville, Newfoundland and Labrador calls Mount Caubvick. It is the tallest mountain in both provinces. Its peak is right on the border.

Re: Wednesday, January 29, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The guaranteed 1000 and 2000 seem to have the effect of creating a more National contestant pool than was the case before. In the early years of the syndicated Jeopardy!, it was not at all unusual for all three contestants to be from the west side of LA, and they would get introduced as being origin...

The correct name for the process that went awry is redistricting. Gerrymandering is not a process. Gerrymandering is what political opponents call a redistricting that they don't like.

My stupid Miss of The game was gymnasium instead of gym, which I know would have been negged.

Didn't anybody notice how mad Sarah looked for the last part of the double jeopardy round? She kept violently tossing her hair whenever she missed a buzz. On the confetti clue, she was really seriously working that buzzer with her right hand. And then when the round ended she went overboard straight...

I got at least 43. The only one I actually gave a wrong wrong answer for is Jennifer Aniston. I said Angelina Jolie. I missed at least three due to time out. I was trying to coin flip between Hasbro and Mattel and time ran out. Then there were about three others where I didn't even field a guess.

FJ was near-instaget as there are so few African capitals on the Mediterranean. I'm surprised Necco was a category because NECCO (New England Confectionary Co.) went kaput in 2018. Their brands were bought by Spangler Candy of Ohio, but Necco wafers have disappeared from my local Dollar Tree. I'm no...

Champ has something in common. I was my mom's GPS when I was 5 because I read Michigan maps all the time.
What's your score on the Michigan county quiz on Sporcle?

I once had a 12-hour layover in Guam as part of a trip to the Philippines, and I spent much of that time driving around the island, so I knew that wasn’t the correct response. But weren't you even a little bit worried that the island might tip over while you were there? LOL, just LOL at Robert Loui...
