Re: Monday, November 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When I saw the island with the "East/West" clue, I started to get ready to say Timor...it was SO kind of them to zoom out the map and show Argentina, making it an instaget even for a geophobe like me. Medical idioms just seemed to stump me for absolutely no good reason. Even the ones I knew I someho...

I’m 0 for 4 on the penguin pics, but I’m on an iPhone with safari. Will try at home.

Re: Friday, November 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had "orthopedic surgeon" for "orthopedist". Too specific, judges? They're listed as separate specalties on https://health.usnews.com/doctors/specialists-index , but I clicked on orthopedist and got nobody. I also found a website for "West Idaho Orthopedics" which starts has the sentence "An ortho...

Re: Friday, November 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex's impressions are pure money. And by "pure money", I mean he earned me $200 in Coryat because I didn't know Bogart was in the Matlese Falcon, but rang in immediately after he read the clue. Kinda shocked I ran the category, as my knowledge of movies pre-1970 isn't great, and pre-1960 is pretty ...

Re: Thursday, November 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I will agree that the math question for $1000 was tough - but obtuse isn't going to cut it, either. Alex is going to "Oh, sorry" you. Scalene triangle: Three acute angles. Right triangle: One right angle. Obtuse triangle: One obtuse angle. Oblique triangle: NOT a right triangle. That is to say, EIT...

Re: Thursday, November 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

No, the term for three acute angles is an acute triangle. Scalene means that the three sides (therefore also the three angles) are all different. The two trios are acute/right/obtuse and scalene/isosceles/equilateral. Scalene and isosceles triangles can be acute, right, or obtuse (equilateral has t...

Swept Disney, which is the easiest category I think I've seen in awhile - all five song titles are must-knows, IMO. I could forgive Mary Poppins, but the sequel came out last year. Took me back to 7th grade chorus, where we did A Disney Spectacular, and I was Winnie the Pooh and Chimney Sweep #2. I...

the shining came out in 1980
Nice catch! Didn't source that one before typing it...but it's practically 70s to me. I knew The Shining was later than Cuckoo, but thought it was 79. Dates are very, very helpful in J! - as noted in tonight's FJ!.

I'm a lightweight compared to many here - my Coryat hovers around 20K on average. I dominated this game, because of good categories - $28,200, 37R/1W (damn you, French stewardess - I said "bellhop"), and got all 3 DD and FJ!.

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

I have two clues on the same topic, same category, same response. At first, pick one of the two clues. I think the second is a little harder, but feedback's welcome.

"MIS"INFORMATION for $2k: It can be a collection of writings by different authors, or a mixture of various items I said mish-mash. Judges? I'd have to give the thumbs-down. It definitely fits the second definition, but I don't think I've ever heard of a collection of writings by different authors b...

Ran "vo"cab, got murdered by historical hodgepodge. Oh well, at least I know my weak point. I actually did way better in DJ! than J! because I couldn't clam myself. For some reason, I blurted out "NOAA" as the organization that certifies the boats, went with "Irish Pride" instead of "Celtic Pride" (...

Any reason I should know exactly how tall Robert Wadlow was? 8 seemed like a perfectly good guess. There's no need to know exactly how tall Robert Wadlow was.

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

I remember reading something recently about how Ken, Brad, or any former ToC contestant, would be an unlikely choice for the next host. Any future "best of" ToCs with past contestants from the Trebek era would be virtually impossible to do, since I imagine the host would be connected to a lot of the...
