Duck decoys are designed to attract ducks, so would a decoy museum try to attract ... museums? If so, how would they get there? ;)

Or is the museum filled with models of curious humans?

I got stuck thinking of films that might start in a late-night diner. Guess that's just my mindset :)

Re: Monday, September 23, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

A couple of bad wagers in FJ. First off, Matt only really needed to cover Stephanie, but I don't mind him betting more, since she was being crushed and had reason to go big (so he could bet his lead over her and even more and expect to come out ahead if they were both wrong). But Matt overdid it by...

Re: Calling All TOCers 2003 - 2013

You don't think there's any place for any of the college players? I think that's where you might be wrong. I'm not saying it should be me (on the contrary, I think they'd pick Monica over me) but I think that Nico or Cliff (was he 03?) would deserve the call again, too. They had the college champs ...

Re: Thursday, September 19, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had a feeling FJ would give Parth some trouble. I pegged him as someone whose smarts were more strictly academic, and who might be thrown by a purely pop culture FJ. Actually, I felt like he might predict a wager of less than $400 from Jared, and defensively wager less than $3,200. As a result, I...

Re: Thursday, September 19, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

As far as I'm concerned, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" ends with "never could see any other/never could see any other/never could see any other," ad infinitum. (It fades out on the CD, but I first heard that album in the form of an original vinyl pressing.) I always heard it as "never cou...

Hey sports fans, For those who don't recognize my handle from the old Sony board, I'm Keith Williams . I got fed up with awful FJ! wagering, so I decided to do something about it. The result is The Final Wager , a blog dedicated to the game theory of the last clue. (The wagering calculator is great,...

Re: Calling All TOCers Class of 2004

Keith Williams still has an interest in Jeopardy! as he has a Final Jeopardy! wagering blog: http://thefinalwager.wordpress.com/ It's true! Actually, I have more of an interest in helping people avoid bad wagers. I'd love to post a thread on my project, but it won't let me for some reason. I guess ...
