Being half Scottish definitely helped make this FJ easier for me. If you ever find yourself in Edinburgh, the Writer's Museum there has a lot of artifacts from Stevenson's time in Samoa.

Re: Monday, December 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

On FJ, I spent the entire time debating between Lawrence and Ronan. (The Oscars is a bit of a specialty of mine.) I had seen Ronan on a talk show recently where she mentioned being 24, and I knew Lady Bird was her second Best Actress nomination. I still settled on Lawrence because I remembered her b...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I can't believe someone could walk away on the Charlie Duke question. I had no idea who Charlie Duke was and it's still a really easy question. Obviously people younger than 36 have become billionaires, like Mark Zuckerberg. Even if they kept official records for the youngest person to become a gran...

Re: Thursday, November 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Any reason I should know Minor for $200 was home runs and not any other baseball stat? The clue referenced Crash Davis, Kevin Costner's character from Bull Durham who famously sets the minor league home run record during the events of the film. As you can imagine, it's something of a dubious honor ...

Re: Tuesday, October 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The category name is fine. "Hyphenate" is commonly used in the parlance of show business and in other fields like sports. Does anyone really think "People with hyphenated names" would be a limitation they would put on a Final Jeopardy category? Daniel Day-Lewis is the only hyphenated name I can thin...

Am I a jerk if I rooted against Michael because of the proposal? I just intensely dislike public proposals, especially on TV or on the Jumbotron at a ballgame. In this specific incident it also felt like the act of someone who was overconfident that they would win. Maybe I'm projecting but I wouldn...

Re: FJs for the 2/19/18 week

5/5 for me on the week. First time I've been able to say that in a while. I used to play Newcomb in middle school, but I thought it was "Nukem" like the Duke Nukem video game character. Viola Davis should have two Oscars already. It's a crime she lost to Streep's Iron Lady the year she was up for Th...

Can we poll Bulls Bay = SC? That seemed ridiculously obscure.

Never heard of the bay, but the clue mentioned Francis Marion who was a notable figure in the American Revolution from South Carolina.

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

The curvy bone, that's a distinctive feature of a lamb chop Which you would know only if you've ever seen a lambchop before. The show rewards you for knowing things. If you don't know things, you don't get rewarded. I didn't recognize that as lamb either, but I didn't go on a message board and comp...

Can't say I've heard of Rob Lowe before. I don't know why, but this one galls me more than most of the things you claim not to have heard of. The man has been a world-famous actor for 30 years. He's been on numerous hit TV shows and been nominated for Emmys. He danced with Snow White at the Oscars ...

Was pleased with myself for knowing FJ and was surprised two players got it, as it seemed kind of tricky. Audrey Hepburn never occurred to me. Katharine Hepburn, at least according to the biography I read, didn't act much during that period because she was busy taking care of Spencer Tracy, who was ...

Anyone know if Loren is a Warriors fan? I feel like his $739 wager in FJ might be a tribute to the 73-9 record the Warriors put up last year. Shocked that Clint Hill was a TS. Had "try" instead of touchdown for PAT. Was disappointed we didn't finish the Robert Louis Stevenson category, because I jus...

Like TPH, I had never heard of Isabel Peron. If that had been me ringing in on the show, I'm sure I would've had a pretty funny look on my face. I like themed boards like today's DJ round.

Is it just me, or do the contestants rarely seem to get the Raymond Chandler clues right? I know there have been several times in recent years when I've yelled Chandler/Marlowe/Big Sleep at the TV to no avail.
