Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 11, 2019

37 off the video (vs 32 for real on the Tuesday test). Physics, science, biology, chemistry? Yes please! Man, that Florida test was easy. 100% agree. Wonder what they were thinking there I'm also interested in the story behind the Florida test. From the video it wasn't even challenging (I might have...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Since at this point we are just making stuff up, I'll throw this out there: I would not be surprised if the site was created by someone in the professional betting community. Someone James interacts with on a regular basis - not necessarily a friend but perhaps a co-bettor or an oddsmaker. Someone t...

Another Olivia Newton-John. It is possible I conflated her "Physical" with an exercise video but I doubt I would have eventually made it to Fonda.

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It didn't end up changing the outcome of the game, Laura's DD wager is a perfect illustration of the fact that on J!, fortune favors the bold. When she hit DD3, she was down $28,400 to $12,000. Knowing what James had already done, she had to know that by far her best shot of winning was to try to g...

I took it successfully, seemed quite difficult. I'm not sure I got 35 this time around. :?
Concur. I count six questions I could not even muster a reasonable guess on.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 9, 2019

31/50 for practice. Way worse than the test from a couple weeks ago. Had a stretch of seven guesses in the middle of the test and started to choke a little bit. Taking it for real tonight.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (West Palm Beach), March 27, 2019

Prepping to take the real test tonight. if it's as easy as this one then I am golden. I'm no whiz, but managed a 45, missing Poirot (no guess), McCarthy (Hoover), EGOT (couldn't pull it in time), Alps (outsmarted myself with Apennines), and Shake it Off (had the radio playing in the background and c...

Re: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

With DD3 hiding and the scoreboard rout on it was obvious that if James could find DD3 he could take a run at Roger's record. Each clue selection was a hold-the -breath moment with the search ongoing. I exhaled each time a pick by the challengers did not have the DD sound effect go off. Finally Jam...

Precalled Warsaw based on the category and was delighted to find it contained six letters. Wasted the next 20 seconds trying to mangle it into another capital name before switching gears and taking the four letter part of the clue and working backwards. Got it in the nick of time.

Re: Sony Reportedly Searching For Alex's Replacement

Part of the appeal of AT for me is that I can believe he actually knows the responses to all the clues, actually is multi-lingual, actually has traveled the world. A replacement host should at least be able to give the illusion of the above. Someone urbane and genteel. This rules out most comedians....

Re: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The DEL -> India -> Ghandi progression seemed plausible enough that I never seriously considered anything else.

The only good thing about having a Shakespeare DJ! category is that it won't be the FJ! category.

Re: Monday, April 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did that question about the heart really require a 4-part response, i.e. RA, LA, RV, LV? What a mouthful! I was thinking the same, and it made me curious about other clues that have also required a lengthy list in the response (eg. "These five continents...", "These eight elements...") Any takers o...

Elvis (easy), Michael Jackson (died much earlier), Prince

Probably would have eventually stumbled onto Franklin but not in 30 seconds.

Re: Previous J! contestants: Did you track money in real time?

A great way to psych yourself out and lose is to keep looking at the toteboard every clue Yes. I'd rather try to get in a rhythm without regard to my relative position. It's not like I would try harder if I was way behind (which would probably be self-defeating). If one was far ahead I can see some...

Previous J! contestants: Did you track money in real time?

I'm curious if it is realistic to keep an accurate handle on your winnings during play. From the fourth podium, it seems that the show is fast paced enough that I would just have a general sense of "I'm in it", "I'm way behind", or "I'm way ahead", and would only be able to come to a more accurate a...

Re: Wednesday, March 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Somehow my brain knew it was baseball but it kept jumping to Field of Dreams. It finally clicked in the waning seconds and I got the correct response, even though I did not know it was a book.

Judging from prior posts, I think there may be an illuminating "book vs. movie" poll question in there.

Re: TD 414 - The Academy Awards

i'm sorry, but I'm not getting question 9 at all. Are you looking for eg. any one best actress nominee, or a list of four best actress nominees? And is this question implied to be pinned to a particular year?
