Washington on Friday, for some unknown reason. Would never have come up with AZ.

Have not read The Lottery.

Re: Friday, July 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Don't forget that category was FEMALE SINGERS MONONYMOUS, so it wasn't going to be anyone we refer to by a first and last name. (I still kneejerked Joan Baez on the bottom clue like Jim did, though.) Only other British singer I can think of who went by one name was Lulu (probably too old for most p...

Re: Friday, June 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I considered Avalon for this clue but only after Camelot had immediately leapt to mind. Camelot seemed like the "obvious" response, so I felt that the clue would be a wicked curveball if the response were actually something else. This feeling may be influenced by the fact that I thought of Camelot ...

Regarding FJ: Took me a few seconds to check my date math before writing down smallpox. The TOM for me worked out as: disease gone (presumably worldwide since no “US only” or other qualifier) since 1978 (2018-40); assuming worldwide, smallpox is the only disease to be completely eradicated in human...

Re: James wouldn't have lost pre-James

Emma came in cold. She made that bet without having seen James play once. How do we know she didn't come to the studio the week before to watch a taping? Official Jeopardy! and press interviews? Would she be required to mention she was there? Does the show keep track of every person in every audien...

Third (pardon my ignorance): what the hell is "Kip" Marlowe? I' know who Marlowe was, read some of his work in college, even came up with "Who was Marlowe?" for this FJ. Is "Kip" some nickname I've just never heard of? Was Marlowe, unbeknownst to us, secretly Kenyan? And what's up with including th...

It's interesting that Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter never seem to take part in this. I wonder why?
I’d guess because there’s only downside for their reputations by participating.

Tainted by association with Nazis -> "Deutschland über Alles" -> Germany. What? It's not Germany?! But... but Deutschland! That's Germany! HOW IS THAT WRONG?!? I still don't see how that ends up being Austria instead and I've read the Wikipedia article on it. Two clues to me that it was not Germany...

Re: Thursday, May 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I knew that a hymn tune by Haydn famously got turned into “Deutschland Uber Alles”. I did not know that the same tune was the Austrian anthem, but the wording of the clue did not seem to point to Germany, so I went with the only other logical choice of Austria.
