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

I legit liked Myrlin's custom monogrammed top. More of us should wear our initials. It used to be a thing, especially for men on their shirt pockets (although usually understated). You don't see it too much anymore.

BTW if they ever ask about "tortoiseshell" the correct (Pavlovian) response is "hawksbill (sea) turtle", not any kind of tortoise.

I'm counting turtle for tortoise.
Probably safe; I can't find any instances in the Archive of someone being negged on "turtle" when "tortoise" was expected. At most you'd get a BMS, I think.

It's in: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6927 Good luck with tomorrow's FJ! clue, Robert. For me it seems like each time I make your kind of post that I get taught a lesson the following day. Well that would be par for the course for me. I can't remember the last week I didn't score ...

It's basically "match the definition to a common physics term" for Final. It's hard for me to say goodbye to Zach, but a lot less hard after a miss on what I consider an easy clue.

Was there supposed to be an image there?
No, that is a social media thing, where the typer knows that typing a description is enough to evoke in the reader the image of an animated gif, saving the typer the trouble of trying to find the gif.

If I'm going to massacre someone I'm going to require at least two bits.
Which two? 00, 01, 10, or 11?

Re: What tournaments are in store for Season 37?

It seems Jimmy ruled himself out as a host, guest or otherwise, which is too bad, I would have liked to have seen him, and Sarah too.

I hope they end up canceling that ridiculous doubles play college championship.

Re: Thursday, January 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

TBH I was a little worried about Zach coming back and getting steamrolled by Brian. I should not have been!

I wonder what the game looks like if Brian had uncovered the DJ! Daily Doubles (or if Zach had missed them both).

Re: Wednesday, January 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Play me a little Bach on this old-time type of keyboard instrument that's "Well-Tempered" in a Bach title Oy. "Clavier" just means "keyboard." It does not refer to any specific instrument, old-time or otherwise. A modern piano, or for that matter the very latest synthesizer, is a "clavier." In the ...

What's this I'm hearing about Dick Cheney being the new host?
Yes. He's going to give it ... a shot.
Don't you think Cheney is a bit too, how should I say this, in-your-face?

Actually, they are working on methods to do just that. Nielsen is already compiling a weekly top ten list of the most-watched shows on streaming platforms.
Doesn't matter much when your new daily content isn't on any streaming platforms, does it?

Re: J! in the Media

As more and more Americans become cord cutters it wouldn't be surprising to see J! lose 5% or more per year of their viewership no matter who their host is.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I’m looking forward to Mayim Bialik’s episodes. I think she’ll do well. Of the announced future guest hosts she's the only one I'm interested in. The issue is a 65 year old isn’t likely to be willing to commit to hosting the show as long as Alex did. That is the primary factor in my mind, but I als...

Re: J! Archive Problem

SQL tables needed repaired. This is happening occasionally now, I presume as an artifact of the database getting larger, but, so far, has posed only a minor inconvenience. I don't understand why the solution shouldn't be automatic within SQL if it is so easy to fix manually by clicking a button.

At one time they were even applying this to McDonald's, but they relaxed that rule
I imagine if forced to comply, McDonald's would have locally shortened their name to McDo ("mick-DOUGH"), which is how they are known colloquially in France.
