Re: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I went for the episode title and didn't look too into the song, fatal mistake. Good question but didn't get there

Re: Monday, April 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

You could have given me the entire episode and I wasn't coming up with peace sign. I even tried physically mimicking the posture and it was a no-go. I'm familiar with the sign itself but wasn't getting anywhere close to the design they mentioned. The champ seemed pretty darn strong tonight, game was...

Re: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'll say this as well. I was surprised that Tom didn't try to go for the Daily Double when there were 3 clues left on the board and it was fairly obvious which one had it. Obviously I wouldn't know for sure how the guy thinks, but I would have thought it was his best chance with both Larissa and Ru...

I guess I'm gonna be the only one to go for Elizabeth Cady Stanton. For some reason I placed Anthony's death a couple decades later. Oh well. Very entertaining game.

Re: Friday, March 28, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That particular bit of trivia on Reds was pretty well disseminated around the time when SLP got nominated, but unless you were really following Oscar nominees at that time, it was a tough grab. The new champ is pretty darned good. Some real deep knowledge there, solid buzzer skills, could run for a ...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I'll second GS' point, I find it to be a really interesting topic, but could it be spun out? I have a response or two but I don't want to clutter up this useful thread any more.

There have been some news stories going around that California's lack of rainfall had impacted the overall almond crop, which led to me choosing almond. I also thought snack helped to push it away from strictly fruits, but yeah, I thought the wrong answers made more sense even if I chose the right o...

Infuriating wagers from the two guys on FJ. A rational wager from either of them wins the game. Very tough FJ. I went Groucho, not even the right group. I agree with Bamaman, Joe's bet is defensible; Derek's is not. Nancy Akerman: $13,200-$10,401=$2,799 Derek Arnold: $11,800-$11,800=$0 Joe Morse: $...

Re: for Survivor talk

The forum ate my post, so the short version that may be wrong. I think Bob's right for the first one (just below 20%). For the second one, I think after the gimme (say on Tribe A), it either has to be a 4/1 split (A/B) or an 0/5 split (A/B). My calculations put each of those odds around 1.6%, so jus...

I (sort of) know Sean, as we've both posted on the same message boards in the past. Purely his online persona, but he's one of the smartest, funniest people I've had the luck to come across online. I was so glad to see him on here and make Arthur sweat a tiny bit in Double Jeopardy. A surprising amo...

Re: Would you bet to tie Arthur, or bet to win?

I think a lot of it depends on how exactly I went into FJ with a lead over Arthur in this hypothetical. There's a huge difference, for me, in these scenarios: A. I'm ahead of Arthur because I went big on a late-game DD that paid off or because he went big on a late-game DD and missed it, putting me ...

Perfect day for Comcast to completely glitch on taping Jeopardy. Sounds like I missed a good one (saw the easy FJ).

I dismissed Bieber because I thought he only had three albums, I completely missed the remixes. Not really ashamed of that but I was completely in the right frame of mind and dismissed it. Ugh. I knew Swift was wrong but got stuck on her. He was two weeks short of 19 when that fifth album his #1 too...

Hey all. This is Terry O'Shea from the episode. I know many people were mystified/disgusted by my bet in Final Jeopardy, so I just wanted to explain it more here. If I had been thinking about the strategically optimal bet alone, I would have just bet $8500. I was pretty sure Tucker would be betting...

Man, my Monday grumpiness from last week seems to be running off on people. Eeek. Anyway, I feel dumb as I might be the only one who doesn't get FJ here. Honestly, never got close and I should have. Derp. I agree that Universal Soldier was an odd placement on a college board. I suspect these contest...

Re: Friday, February 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Apparently "bio" being short for "Bathroom" is a World of Warcraft-exclusive slang. I thought that one was way out of place in the Online Slang category, as the others were all very accessible. Referring to a "bio break" is most certainly not World of Warcraft-exclusive. It's pretty commonly used o...
