My first recollection of watching Jeopardy is following watching Ken Jennings' streak, and although I didn't know any of the questions, being only five, I decided that I was going to be on J! someday. Hopefully being a member of this board will help me with getting good enough to make it on Jeopardy!
People who were five during Ken's run are now in high school.

Just barely, I always know exactly how long ago Ken's run was, because I've related the story about how my son's birth coincided with the end of his run (he was born about 3 weeks before his last game, and despite my diligently watching to see when he'd lose, my son's medical issues at birth prevented me from seeing the last game (though I did catch the one immediately after)). My son is now a happy, healthy, seven year old.
7+5=12, so dipayan must have been an old five.
