Re: J! in the Media

When they relaxed the age requirements for the tryouts for the 2016 College Championship, I thought they would've had a specifically older student, rather than just having two 23-year-olds and a 24-year-old (at the time of the tournament). I wouldn't be eligible for this tournament no matter what, b...

The coverage of the Hong Kong protests over the past year have used the phrase "One country, two systems" a lot.

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

With the mayor of Los Angeles declaring a state of emergency over the coronavirus, I was wondering if that means that this season of J! will either be cut short or if the remaining tapings will be delayed a while.

Friendly reminder that the season starts tomorrow. Or today if you want to do advanced access.
Or if you live in a timezone that's GMT-7 (aka Mountain Time) or further west while still being east of the International Date Line, as the LL day begins at 11PM or earlier in those time zones.

In the longest Daytona 500 ever, which ended up being 522.5 miles, Denny Hamlin ended up winning by the second-smallest margin ever.

BuzzerBlog has been saying that the American version of The Chase should come back and it would be perfect to have Ken and Brad as two of the chasers.
Having all three as Chasers on ABC would fulfill both what ABC wants and what Buzzerblog wants.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Markov chains (or at least some modification of them) are used by lots of people in finance-related fields, and I've heard that some gamblers use them as well. I'm sure that James has lots of familiarity with them.

Boris Johnson's Conservative Party now has a majority in the British Parliament with 365 out of the 650 seats.

I have heard of Hanford, and knew it was famous for something, but if you had asked me what it was famous for, I would've said that it was a town that got evacuated after the Mt. St. Helens explosion.

Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interestingly, in the KJV translations, Psalms has 25 more words than Jeremiah. 42,679 to 42,654. (I downloaded text files of each and stripped out the verse numbers via a regular expression search. One of the few times in my experience when regex hasn't been more trouble than it was worth.) I gues...

I had no idea that something that wasn't a news program would be in that time slot. I was negative six days old when the last new episode of Captain Kangaroo aired.

Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I always thought Psalms was the longest book, but that didn't really fit. Plus the phrase "Hebrew word count" led me away from it. Said Lamentations since it kindasortmaybe fit the other part of the clue. As best as I can remember, I've NHO jeremiad. At least I can say I got a DD that James missed....

Someone has posted a tweet here from James that said that some people didn't play as well as they were going to after hearing about Alex's health.

Well, 'fisherman' but close enough to right.

The show's called "Deadliest Catch" for a reason.
