Upsetting when you have logic to a question and still miss it.

On the Salvation Army question, I had the logic of George Bernard Shaw's Major Barbara serving the Salvation Army.

I wonder why the GB Shaw work is Major Barbara and not Lieutenant Barbara?

I'm guessing because she's been with them a while and got a couple promotions?

I never ever have considered the possibility they might actually have ranks in the Salvation Army.

Today's episode answered the question of whether you can be on Master Minds if you were previously on Best Ever Trivia Show.

Lety appeared on Best Ever Trivia Show during its one season. I remembered her well as she also appeared on The Chase.

This was fun. We were all on stage together waiting for the taping to start and I only kinda recognized Lety but I had no idea where from. So I turned to ask Ken and Muffy but they couldn’t place her either. We aren’t really supposed to speak to contestants but I couldn’t help it. When she told us she was on BETS we were all surprised and like “oh yeah! heyyy welcome back”. We had no idea contestants could come back either.

Not what I guessed when I saw there was an early post and then who had the follow-up as I thought you were going to win, Jonathan, when you led Ken in round 3. Cool info about Lety as I never would put that together.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing? The contestant had the wrong author in the bonus round, but the writer's famous work does have a character that matches part of the title of the work in the Q. Ken, of course, is never going to miss that kind of layup.

If Lety ever gets on J! then remind me about her appearances on the GSN shows.

Surprised that Ken missed Occipital Lobe and Battle of the Boyne. Easy 10k for me.

Coincidentally, there was a question about the Frontal Lobe on today's episode of The Chase.

I can't believe they allowed the word vagina on Master Minds. I thought this was a family show.

Many people in families have vaginas.

A recent final Jeopardy! clue appeared on today's episode.

"Which state has had 4 female governors?"

Both the contestant and Ken missed the question by guessing Michigan. The answer of course being Arizona.

This shows that even Ken forgets some FJ! clues.

Good job on Brooke for properly pronouncing the word 'gif'.

Build a batting cage is a good one for what to do with the money that differs from the normal travel wishes.

It reminded me of the 2007 All Star Fan Fest that included an indoor batting cage. The worker fed baseballs into a pitching machine and I almost took his head off with my first swing as my appearance would not give anyone in such a position the reason to feel threatened that a liner was on its way. He wisely fed the rest of my pitches from a safer position.

Later that day I saw Harold Reynolds get cuts to get right in the cage without waiting. It was amazing from a short distance away to see a former MLBer take hacks as from home viewing it's impossible to appreciate the speed of a baseball.

Since then I'm not sure I've had any kind of competitive at bats that were not of the Wii Sports variety.

Huh. I could have sworn she pronounced it with a 'j' sound, not like the 'g' in 'graphic'.

Should we have been pronouncing SCUBA with an 'uh' in the middle this whole time, too?
