Re: Tuesday, January 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If it weren't for The Godfather II it is unlikely that I would have gotten FJ correct in the time allowed (especially considering the time I wasted thinking of SE Asia).

Re: Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

i can speculate as well as the next guy. I think any illegal wager for a DD or FJ would be caught in real-time so that is unlikely. It's possible that the event is just a really poor bet but the OP referenced needing to "fix" the wager so I think that is unlikely as well. I'll surmise that the situa...

If they had a Jeopardy movie the role of Jonathan would be played by Paul Giamatti.
And Jordan would be played by Liev Schreiber.

Okay, so why should I learn? Nothing has given me a reason to.
Because it's fucking fun and makes life more enjoyable and interesting.
Plus you it gives you the ability to be a pedantic pr!ick at parties, spewing useless trivia at the drop of a hat.

Re: Friday, December 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My first thought on FJ was Ayn Rand (which is about as antipodal as you can get) but when I stopped to think that a billion dollars is a carpload of money I ended up on JK pretty quick. I'm curious if there are any billionaire authors that do not also have film or merchandising income.

Re: Friday, December 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My first thought for Final was the building with the steps that Rocky run ups in the namesake movie but the date was a little off and it just didn't seem to fit the clue very well. (That is the Philadelphia Museum of Art BTW). Hit on Devil's Tower next and immediately knew it would be correct.

I had good intentions to enter, but after a drop, sheep and aural in the first three questions I gave up. I think your self-assessment is accurate.

Alexander did not seem to be enjoying himself, and Alex's good-natured ribbing of the contestants did not help.

Got FJ without considering any other teams.

Re: The crisis in TDs

I'm relatively new around here and have entered perhaps a couple dozen TDs. I play to have fun and while it's exciting to be among the leaders for a handful of questions it usually doesn't last.

Yes, that was my initial thought as well. Blew about five seconds trying to make the dates work before I gave up and went down the correct path.

Another guess for Poe on FJ, even though I think of him more as a short story writer and wasn't sure if he had married and/or sired a son.

4.5/5 on FJ this week (had Munich, couldn't come up with Montreal). First time I've been this close to a perfect week in a long time.

Re: Friday, November 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was unaware that melli->honey, but I had enough sense to think of another melli- word: mellifluous. Hmmm - something sweet - honey is sweet - oh, honey badgers were a thing a few years ago - got nothing better so down it goes.

Solid group of finalists. It should be an entertaining couple of games.
