I saw that Spencer Silver, co-inventor of Post-It Notes, passed away earlier this month.

I guess he just couldn't stick around any longer.
He only came up with the adhesive, it was Romy was the one who wanted to put paper notes all over her walls, and Michelle said they should be yellow.

" ‘Jeopardy!’ EP Mike Richards: Guest Hosts Were Part of Fans’ Grieving Process" (article) Thanks. The last sentence of this interview confirms that the choice will be finalized before the final guest host(s) episodes air and before ratings for these individuals are known. Make of that what you wil...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I don't think the ratings trend means much about any particular host. At best the numbers show that Aaron Rodgers was able to spark meager and temporary additional interest, and disprove the hypothesis that the TV polish and brand of Anderson Cooper could offer a huge ratings jolt. The real test wi...

If Medina Spirit gets disqualified, that would be dope.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Sorry Aaron, but J! isn't going to let you play football and host at the same time. Imagine if you get injured again while playing, J! would have to search for another host while you are recuperating. that would all depend on taping schedule. the show could always change the schedule if he would be...

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

Can Aaron Rodgers do J! and the NFL? That's been one question. Aaron Rodgers found time to appear on The Conners , as a preview of the last two episodes of the season (starting May 12) showed him as host & Jackie as a contestant. Does Aaron Rodgers have more time in a calendar year than he spends o...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

is there currently a country with a capital that isn’t just a city? Since every country poses a somewhat unique instance of geopolitical subdivision, "isn't just a city" would have to be defined. Most countries don't have "states" like the U.S. does, although many have things that you could argue a...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Not worth putting in the guide, but the house passed a bill to grant statehood to Washington DC.

just thinking how interesting it would be that the US capital is a state and not a city.

Since I don’t know details of other places, is there currently a country with a capital that isn’t just a city?

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

Let's face it, the man doesn't have the time to do both jobs, unless one or both jobs change schedules. I agree. Although it certainly seems possible that the entire Jeopardy! season could be taped during the NFL's off-season. Basically he'd have from February till July to get the entire season in ...

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

He may have a lot of respect for the game, but I doubt he would be able to host the show and play as quarterback at the same time because it is possible that he has to play a big game on the day of taping, so Ken still holds the top spot for me as the new host. I think it is highly unlikely that th...

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

Seems like most everyone is giving him high marks for effort so I have to be the one with the hot take that he was the worst of the guest hosts. His reading/presenting voice ranged from nervous-kid-reading-book-report-at-the-front-of-the-classroom to Eeyore. When not behind the lectern he shifted b...

Re: The 2021 Tournament of Champions Is Happening Next Month

With J mostly being on ABC stations, and not in prime time, there isn’t really a need to have reruns those weeks. It's not mostly on ABC stations (that info may be a little out of date, but there haven't been that many changes), and I suspect that NBC's Olympics coverage will be starting at 7:30 P....

It's funny, I'd been noticing every time they cut to him he has both hands free, so wondered if he had abandoned marking the clues off on paper. Would make sense with the digital sheet that someone else off stage could do that part for him so one less thing to have to be doing at game speed. So if ...

Re: The 2021 Tournament of Champions Is Happening Next Month

Potentially unpopular opinion, but I think that's probably for the best. We've pretty much seen the best of the Trebek era already, and we've seen them compete in these kinds of tournaments several times at this point. I think the GOAT tournament and this last Trebek-era tournament should close the...
