Re: It's a Hand! It's Michigan! category poll (1/3/20 spoilers)

I honestly thought the category was very tough for non-Michiganders. Interlochen in particular seemed obscure even for the bottom box. Agree, I think everything except Grand Rapids was pretty tough. Jackson should have been the $2000 and the other two omitted. With proper wording hints (hand placem...

Re: GOAT Tournament: The Return of Super Jeopardy!-Style Points

No scores blurred here. Have fun trying to read them. I'm sure it's from rehearsal and not actual game play. What I want to know is if a DD was involved in the numbers? https://i.ibb.co/gtFyDBH/goatscore.jpg What I read for the score display using some zooming: James 4300 or 4800, Ken 1200, Brad 220...

J! likely won't ask for Ghosn, but it's very possible they'll spot him and ask for Nissan. (LL might ask for Ghosn) Yada, yada, lying about financials, that's the boring part. The plot tw...

Hey hey! I just added a Constitutional amendments deck to my Anki set this week.

Poll request: If they had asked which amendment it was, I could have gotten 16th.
Request seen. I would known it was not 15 or 18 and been left with a coin toss where I don't know which way I would have gone.

Continue to be impressed with Karen. I’ll be surprised if this FJ polls over 50%. I kept thinking “a gemstone...a gemstone...Emerald?”; on the right track but the gemstone connection turned out to be the writer, not the supporting actress, and I had the wrong gemstone. Sigh.

Is there a reason anyone should know Mo'nique? She only gets six other Archive hits, of which only one (a $600 clue from 2011) required her as the correct response. She doesn't seem to have done anything noteworthy after Precious either. 1. Karen got $20,401 today. 2. Karen did not leave with the 2...
