I definitely heard what I thought was "F'in' History!" once or twice (as opposed to "F in History").

Re: Friday, June 17, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Whenever I hear bushmen, I think !Kung, so my head jumped to that and I couldn't get to pygmy. And for anyone who doesn't know, please watch The Gods Must be Crazy sometime. Definitely the best movie about the Kalahari bushmen. (And a very fun movie in it's own right.) I wasn't going to mention any...

I agree but also bristle at your suggestion that every watcher might be pre-Federation-encounter Borg.

I have come from this game's future to say I'm really disappointed none of you thought to post that if the Gainsborough clue were a TS then I guess none of them would have known Buttall.

Re: Tuesday, December 15, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was bothered by the fact that the alcohol proof clue wanted the response as a decimal but the response "43%" was accepted. Yup, as a math geek, I can tell you 43% is NOT a decimal. Since I am a literate person who diagrams sentences (and a degreed mathematician, BTW) I ask you which part of speec...

Alex Trebek: Alex Maggio is a writer whose wife is an actress, and this past season, we saw the last episode of a very popular series called Mad Men . Your wife had a cameo in that. Alex Maggio: Yes, she did. She played a secretary on that show for the last two seasons. Um, Alex #1: two seasons as ...

Re: Monday, November 30, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think "foilage" is wrong because it transposes the "i" and "l". If it were FJ and a contestant wrote down "foilage" it would definitely be wrong. I'd bet "FO-lij" would be acceptable, even if the three-syllable pronunciation is more common. This is exactly (almost verbatim) what it says at http:/...

Re: Friday, November 6, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So, has anyone come up with a name for her affectation? I'm sure there is one. Yes. It's vocal frying. No it's not. Vocal fry is crackly. I noticed some cracking, but YMMV. It could be that the definition doesn't include cracking anyway- hard to nail down and it could have originally required it an...

Maybe I am just way too amused by this than I should be, but how the heck does it take until her third game for the tidbit about Nikki being married to Mike Teevee come up!? That movie is such a classic; I just can't believe that that wasn't mentioned in her first game! Seriously. Talk about buryin...

I said fen for bog - judges? I'm fine with the "west village" correction, even though i said greenwich village, but i thought the "mutt" correction was odd. Sure, it technically has 2 consonants and a vowel, but... The reason AT gave for the reversal was that supposedly he hadn't specified that the...

St Albans VT >Wars of the Roses (!) Casa Del Jefe is 3 miles from said town. I can assure you unless you hear /ALL-bins/ they are not talking about VT. (and in true rural clipped speech it is known as S'n'a'bans). Of course Alex has the right to be wrong, but his Saint /all-banes/ (I think) firmly ...
