Why is a rap question worth an eye roll? The album is considered a classic.

By those answers I have at least 39 - hope I'm competitive. Not as well as I did last time. :(

I was able to take it and my immediate reaction is "yikes."

Looking forward to the answers being posted - I've been wrong before!

Re: Wednesday FJ (and one Thursday) extended poll

I know what a tater tot is but I've maybe had 3 in my life. I had never heard of the brand Ore-Ida in my life before that FJ. I felt like I was taking crazy pills reading how easily everyone else got it. I am the 4% so far.

I will grant that it was somewhat undervalued, but hardly capital crime level.

HOW DO YOU PEOPLE KNOW ALL THIS FANCY CRAP?!
Look at my .signature. The second quote in particular.
And where is knowing "amuse bouche" EVER going to help anyone in life?
How many times do you have to have this fight?

Jeopardy rewards people who like knowing stuff. The end.

Re: Thursday, February 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was booing my TV by the time we got past the Landry clue in the football category. Come on, that's a gimme! Sports-likers have such an amazing opportunity to clean up if they get a sports category. The questions are almost always easy and your fellow contestants probably wouldn't recognize a footb...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Jeopardy doesn't have many traps, TPH. Good trivia doesn't involve trick questions, and most J! clues are good trivia. Yes, it COULD be any large eastern state. But is that LIKELY? No! Broadway is in New York, and I'm sure you know this. If it were somehow New Hampshire or something, I would agree t...

Hnnnghh. I am not a Wagering Viking but if you're leading going into FJ, get it right, and still lose, something's gone horribly wrong. I'd much rather lose by missing the question than by underbetting.

Re: May 30 2017, Adult Online Contestant Test Discussion

Does anyone have insight as to how much leeway there is for unfinished responses/typos? For example, "Henrietta Lacls" or "black lives matt"? No one knows exactly how much, but my guess is those would probably both be good. I'm hoping there's a lot of leeway for "Cav" since I couldn't finish typing...

Re: What is wrong with Ken Jennings?

I am mystified as to how anyone can take the tweet as a shot as an 11 year old. It's clearly directed at Donnie himself. Crude but not aimed at a kid.

In any event, Ken has a sense of humor that's not for everyone. As of this moment it is not legally required that you follow him on Twitter.

Would TMNT have been accepted? I came up with it but probably too late to write the whole thing down.
