Bible/Rust, "guy who invented the barometer," Lamentations, Japan/Philipines (Russia was my first instinct, but it didn't feel right. Agh.)

Had not heard of Jeremiad before.

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 11/13/2019 - Wednesday TOC (SPOILERS)

No LT. Had "good night and good luck," axe, and Alison Bechdel. And my FJ! response was "Who was the guy who invented the barometer?"

Re: Wednesday, November 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The ToC is prone to having a clue where I know what/who they're asking about but not the name, with "the guy who invented the barometer" joining "the woman who killed the guy in the bathtub" or "the giant statue of Jesus in Buenos Aires Rio De Janeiro." I don't know if the name Torricelli is going t...

Basketball, soccer, ostentatious, Pascal, Caddyshack *. I could not come up with Smetana; after pausing for a minute I said Berlioz but immediately knew that wasn't right and at that point I gave up. Got both Arkansas and Nash. Had both Amen and Proverbs, but had the Versailles neg. Also got hardbal...

Thermopylae (I know better – it happened in 480 BC – but got hung up and decided to say something), no guess

Nothing about the Wednesday clue was familiar. I still couldn't muster a guess after a few minutes with Google and Wikipedia.

I got College Board and Crockett. I wasn't sure I heard the "-s" on Ryan's "College Boards," but knew they'd check the tape and if it was there it would get reversed.

And Salt Lake City is negbait? Isn't the major/flagship university being in the capital the exception, not the rule? Madison, Austin...maybe three more?

Re: "A Big Statistic" for $400 poll (10/14/19 spoiler)

I figured it had to be someone who actually goes out to sea, but couldn't come up with something specific. I thought of lifeguard, but dismissed it.
