Re: TD 447 - Grab Bag (Final Standings)

That was extremely generous scoring on Q10, boss. I'll take it, but I'll also take a penalty on further review.

(I took the "Stupid Answers" part literally and said D was the capital of Djibouti.)

Re: On Both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune?

So based on the multiple counterexamples in this thread alone, can we assume that #50 on this Mashable article is hogwash? Also, #49 as written is hogwash as well even though those well versed in Jeopardy mechanics understand what they were attempting to say. #48 is also false, they really sputtere...

Did anyone else enjoy the synergy between the last two clues in "Three Names" and the two categories to its right?

GDI I was going to go with Cabbage Patch Doll, but if there's a women's basketball answer I have to give it. Shoulda known someone known for topping a statistical chart would be high on a J! crew's list.

Re: Friday, May 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought FJ was *terribly* phrased, since so many countries contain "el" or "la" in their names. Would it have made more sense to phrase it as "On the English-language list of member states of un.org, it's the only nation that uses a Spanish-language article in its name"?

Re: Non-Jeopardy! related poll

I am aware of "think". I would never use it. Aw, come on. Why not? What would it take to get you to switch? Yeah, maybe econgator should give it another think. Or maybe we should just give him free reign on this one. I mean, for all intensive purposes "thing" is correct in that phrase these days. B...

Re: Monday, April 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm going to say idiom is close, but no cigar. "This 5-letter word for a figure of speech is widely used to mean any familiar reference". Idiom definitely means "a figure of speech". But I don't think it's "widely used to mean any familiar reference". For example, I don't think we would generally r...

People are piling on Xiaoke for Babe Ruth, and I'll admit that my husband and I pulled a gold medal performance in synchronized facepalming at that one, but I thought Nathaniel on the "Arizona Trail" was just as bad (we just didn't quite sync the facepalms there). Can we get "fir" as a wrong answer ...

got the Dracula TS and gave it in the same terrible accent Alex did. Sorry not sorry.

Word roots clues are my most favorite thing ever.

The music category hurt my soul. 2/5 recognizing songs (Maroon 5 and Queen). YOU KIDS GET OFF MY LAWN

Tested once. Maybe twice? I think twice. Passed as many times as I took it. Got invited to audition in June 2012 based off the January 2012 test. Successfully conned everyone into believing I was charming, gregarious, interesting, and extroverted, and thus they made the fatal mistake of putting me o...

That was an... interesting conversation Alex had with Londyn there.

Vaguely remembered reading the first name thing, used grandma's surname as the corroboration, and here we are.

I mentally facepalmed when the player from Princeton either missed or ignored every clue directly or peripherally related to Princeton and the Ivy League. And when the sophomore from Texas didn't get the one about sophomores, or Texas. And I think I concussed myself when the engineer put down a dam ...
