Ron reminded me (in voice, looks, and mannerisms) of a slightly rounder Adam Savage of the Mythbusters.

Entertaining game tonight - I imagined Dave would go a lot further than three wins. Still, great game by Burt.

"Johnny, tell them what they've won!" Is to game shows what "Beam me up, Scotty" is to Star Trek
It was never said in an episode even though everyone thought it was?

Re: Friday, July 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Writers, since when is the Appalachian Trail considered on the east coast? It goes through a number of East Coast states. Sacramento is in a west coast state, but not on the west coast. Depends what you're talking about when you say "west coast". Sometimes it means states, sometimes it means the ge...

Judges: In "Math Words", "P: Scheme up this figure with a polygon for a base & triangles with a common vertex for faces"

"polyhedron" instead of "pyramid"?

Doesn't fit the "Scheme up" clue, but works otherwise.

I'd wager that if we were to allow "states not accessible by waterway" as the definition of "landlocked", there may not be any landlocked states at all.

Re: Something unusual happening this week (6/11/18) - possible spoiler?

No alternates were used in the Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday games this week. I was at the taping, and overheard one of the alternates (after the morning session) saying she wouldn't be needed.

Can't speak to the Thursday or Friday games.

I was in the audience for this show and the next two (taped back on February 14th). Strange and awesome to finally see it on the air.

I've won over $900 in HQ. Do you think the 277* correct answers I gave in the games I won were all things I knew? Yes, and how many more times did you take a guess only to be wrong? You're missing the point. If you don't guess, you will be wrong. If you do guess, you might be right. If seaborgium d...

"This type of turtle". Wait, there's more than one? Can't say I've heard of a box turtle. Box, snapping, ninja... One day I'll make it to the Nixon birthplace...it's just up the street... Hah. We must be neighbors. I'm just a couple miles away, and haven't ever visited. It's on my list for this year.

Great run by Josh, but it's nice to see someone else get a chance.

Instaget FJ with just "Chaplin", then confirmed with Tropic Thunder. Usually Oscar categories are less sure for me (they manage to pick very obscure things for these, I just got lucky).

Does anyone else watch J! with closed captioning on? The 'Ecclesiastes' and 'Psalms' responses' captions were swapped on WABC. Did not get FJ! Ended up writing down Langley. We had the same problem with KABC Los Angeles out here. Super strange because there was at least a minute between the clues, ...

I've always referred to them as long johns. I've heard the term "maple bar," but the ones with chocolate have always been long johns. They are filled with either custard or creme. Interesting. Where are you? You can get filled bars here, but the vast majority of bar donuts at the shops I frequent a...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I'm not used to finding this thread on page 2. There are rules here of course. :) Anyway, nothing about a J! game, but the TV show Superior Donuts instead. The owner of the shop announced they were out of "long johns." Based on context I knew it had to be something edible and was not clothing. I ha...
