Re: Eligibility of Canadians for Jeopardy Online Test 2016

The CBC (former Canadian J! home) is reporting the story as well, but it's nothing we don't already know.

Re: Sports Jeopardy! EP. 14 (12-23-15) [Spoilers]

Given the options, the first thing I thought on the scoreboard was Mark's selection, and they try to go positive for these things. So I tend toward the Summit Series option.

I had no earthly clue about FJ as well.

Re: Reretaken Down

I've seen a few episodes and quite like the concept, actually. Though I think this might be the best question they've ever done:

Re: The unemployed on Jeopardy!

Ironically, my current plan should I ever get the pleasure of Johnny's intro was to list "writer" despite having a perfectly cromulent job.

But I think you've hit on a pretty good solution for now (obviously, fingers crossed it doesn't come into play).

This was the worst possible time to forget the password I used... requested the reset email 20 minutes ago and haven't received it. I take it I am in trouble?

My wild guess for FJ was Ellis Island (reading too much into the Human Transport).

Congratulations to Kerry!

Re: If you were alone on FJ, would you bet all but $1?

In the $8400 example I'd probably bet for an even total... $1600 means $10k if I'm right, and that looks good to me.

Re: Friday, January 16, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Just wrapped the J! round on my DVR, but I had to chuckle at a "Friday Night Smackdown" clue on the first Friday since 2005 or so that "Smackdown" aired the night before. Apologies if this has been asked before, but if you respond to the first clue of the game (Explain Shakespeare for $200) with Wha...

I actually use an old Wii Nunchuck attachment as a "buzzer", though it does have the extra analog stick getting in the way.

Still watching off the DVR, but Vaughn should not feel bad at ALL about clamming on the first DD.

I'm not sure I should be appalled that the attackers managed to make off with 100 terabytes of data, or impressed that they managed to find details down to the *ahem* habits of executives.

Loved the groans for the Numerals category, managed to go 3/5 there. As far as Final... 1952 never even entered my mind. I actually started at 1980 (Carter/Reagan/Bush I) then hit the "No Pres or VP" part, then jumped back to the 1920s... but ended up in 1924 because I couldn't remember when FDR ran...

Re: Wednesday, November 19, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Interestingly, I think this hurt me on FJ. I'd heard of Water for Elephants, but Horton=elephant was so obvious in my mind that I didn't see it as the big TOM in the clue. You didn't see the elephant in the room? What you did there; I see it. --- This was a board that lent itself to someone going e...
