I said eating instead of digesting wood. Judges?
"D" in quotation marks, so no go.
Didn’t catch that. No wonder I didn’t do well in the category. Maybe I should have said “What is dine?” :lol:

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Can't say I've heard of "cross examining" before. Odd when the top box is not only my sole miss, but also my sole NHOI.
Have you never watched a courtroom based TV show?

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Watch me skate by with no Katie contestant during her week or Bill/Aaron during their weeks, but run into a player Sanjay, Mayim or Mehmet. :) The roulette wheel is most likely to hit a Mike during Richards's weeks while I'm not sweating a Savannah or Anderson to compete. When it gets to late March...

Re: Tuesday, February 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My wife and I adopted our son from Romania in 1999. We spent a week there. We flew into Bucharest and then took a train ride with our escort (who was with us all week and helped us tremendously) to the village where our son was living in an orphanage. The night before we got him, the three of us wer...

Hmm... Never considered that a "slur word". As a matter of fact, one of my favorite genres of music is widely known as "Gypsy Jazz", a specific type of swing-oriented music as popularized by the great Django Reinhardt. He called it that, and so do nearly all of today's practitioners of the art, suc...

I would comment on Paul not going TDD(-$1) on DD3, but you've heard it all before. He couldn’t catch her on the DD. But his bet of a big round number still left him short of catching her on the last clue. Even if she rang in and missed it he still couldn’t have caught her. He needed to bet at least...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Sanjay Gupta seems like a good choice. He's comfortable in front of the camera and comes across very likeable as well as knowledgeable. I like him as well but wonder how he will handle the hosting format, my main concern with all of them. The rotating hosts and the backlash over Oz makes me wonder....

It's unfortunate that a Jeopardy clue used a word that's widely seen these days as a slur.
What clue was this?

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

The Dr. Oz pushback is less because of "politics" but because he's known for hawking snake oil cures on his show. Miracle diet pills and whatnot. Got it. As I said, I have never watched his show and don’t really pay attention to what he has said. Someone mentioned Dr. Phil. I think any reasonably i...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I get they were kind of thrown for a loop when Alex died. But TPTB should have had a better contingency plan in place than than a revolving door of guest hosts. If Ken hosts five weeks and Mike two that gets us up to February 26. The eight guest hosts get us to April 23. I don’t have a huge problem ...

The "Evelyn Waugh was married to a woman named Evelyn" trivia on tonight's show blew my mind. I don't know how this doesn't come up every time someone mistakes the writer for a woman.
I didn’t know the names were pronounced with a long E.
