Guesstimania Final Jeopardy Week of 7/9/12 (SPOILERS)

Postby alietr » Sat Jul 14, 2012 6:14 am

A little late getting it on here, but hopefully people will enter ... The rules, briefly, are that you have to guess the results of this week's Final Jeopardy responses. You would receive one point for the absolute value of each percentage that your guess varies from the actual poll results for each of the five Final Jeopardy clues for the week. So, for example, if you guessed 40 on Monday's question, and the poll ended up being 52, you would get 12 points. If you guessed 64, you would still get 12 points. Your total will be the total of the five questions (none of the extra questions), and the person with the lowest number of points wins.

Spoiler: show
Monday: 1910 winner Albrecht Kossel studied a new material in the control center of cells; today, we know it as this
Tuesday: In 1989 he said, "You can't just ask customers what they want...by the time you get it built, they'll want something new"
Wednesday: He said, "it is 72 years since the first inauguration of a president under our national Constitution"
Thursday: Of the 6 official languages used at the U.N., this one is last alphabetically.
Friday: This appointed position first held by John Dryden echoes a "Versificator Regis" of Richard I in the 12th century.

It looks like Lisa has won in a walk! She was just about spot-on for every question, and I think that's the lowest score yet. Plasticene put on a good show, followed by OrangeSAM. GroupThink once again would have been in second, were it only human.
