I can't think of why E.J. picked exactly $501 for his wager. His safe martian wager was $1,799. In particular, I can't figure out why his wager ended with -01 instead of with -99.
Any ties to Arkansas, home of the 501 area code?

Has anyone figured out what James said to Jay during the Final reveals?

I got moved vertically (downward) and horizontally, as I move from Midland A to Outback B. Jury is still out if the winner of each Rundle gets a free Blooming Onion.

13/14 Games as runaways = 93% 13/14 correct in FJ = 93% Season 35 correct FJ average for all contestants is: 53.28% So his chance of losing is 7% * 7% * 53.28% = 2.7182% which makes his chance of winning 99.728%. The streak of games probability becomes lower than 50% after 254 games. Get comfortabl...

Does Thorsten even review the 1Ds or MLs? I figured that's what the testing jobs are for.
My understanding is no. When you smith a 1DS, you can provide him notes on what should be accepted and what shouldn't, but ultimately, he is hands off until he runs the scoring machine.

Re: Play along for pancreatic cancer research

23 correct in single Jeopardy, 15 in double, got the Final correct for 39/60. Bumping donation up to $40.

ETA: I gave "flummox" as a response for the $400 clue in "X," which is a synonym for "perplex", so I'm counting it as correct and bumping double to 16 correct. Total is $40.

62 percent get rate with almost 10 percent drinking beer. That has to be up there in terms of easier days in LL history.

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Was I foolish to assign 0 points to what I considered a relatively easy question in one of my opponent's better categories? Even if I had picked the other fashion house I was considering instead of Gucci, it would have still been a tie. I know it's part of the game, but I hate being so bad at assig...

My friend who was in the audience has since sent me a copy of Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. It's a weird, but ente...
