Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), March 6, 2018

What's the verdict on 'ours' instead of 'our'? Doesn't technically match the clue as "a period of time" points to singular rather than plural but on the show they generally don't neg for a singular/plural disagreement unless the category is something like "4 letter words" or "ends with -ur", so you...

I hope they accept Browning only.
In the context of having given her husband's first name, they should. Still, I put Barrett Browning.
Likely to be a BMS on the show, but I think the online test questions are scored somewhat generously.

Felt fairly easy to me, but usually when I think that about a test, I tanked it.

Re: FJs for the 12/26/16 week

Was anybody else thrown off by the use of 'title character subject' in the John Nash clue? Maybe I misread the clue. :oops:

Took it for real (hard to type with my fingers crossed), I'll call it 45/50.
Missed:
James (went with Elizabeth)
All About That Bass (I said 'the', which would def be negged on the show, right?)
Brahms
Jane Austen
Red Cross (I know, I know...)

Re: Eligibility of Canadians for Jeopardy Online Test 2016

Last week's episode of 'Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me' had a question based on Jeopardy's Canadian 'ban'. Everything's pretty tongue-in-cheek on that show, so I'm not sure how accurate their depiction was.

Re: "500 questions" is casting for season 2

Good luck to all still in the running! I'm really curious if the rumors of a new host are true. I'm glad to see that they're still heavily recruiting from the Jeopardy! pool for Season 2. The rumors are true, they just haven't named a host yet. I'm sure you're tickled to hear this, Megan. I'm not! ...

Re: Friday, January 29, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I picked up on the emphasis on "securing fortune" in FJ and went with Robert Morris, the financier of the Revolution. Is that a crazy guess, or does the wording of the clue merit that line of reasoning? Many people found the wording of the clue difficult to parse. To me, it pretty clearly was spoke...

The latter is the correct response. And a lucky one. Those were the only two rappers I could remember offhand, and it was a mental coin-flip between them. Man you need to stay up to date with your current hip-hop events. Kanye's been all over the news this week for hilarious reasons. You see, 'yeez...

Easy. Just answer "there is no correct response to this clue because I know that the quote in question is from The Old Man and the Sea because I have read it a hundred times but that starts with a "T" and not an "O." Oooh. I'm sorry. As you know, here on Jeopardy, our contestants are instructed to ...
