Re: Monday, November 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As another poster has said - I have doubts that this is anything but a natural voice. The pitch is just fine, even some males have helium voices. Remember that Olympic gymnast a few years ago (citation needed, sorry) with the Minnie Mouse voice? Tara Lipinski? Sometimes a cartoon voice clears up al...

I did 27 = 3³, 15 = 3 × 5, 3^4 = 81, 81 × 5 = (80 ×5) + (1 × 5) = 400 + 5 = 405.

Knowing powers of three sometimes comes in handy.

Anybody else think Ali should have gotten credit, perhaps after the break, for "semiotics"? Yes, I knew before he said it what they were going for, but when I heard his response I thought to myself "yeah, that works too".

Re: Monday, May 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Please tell me somebody sang "I left my head in San Francisco". Anyone else remember Brent Spiner's album of standards "Ol' Yellow Eyes Is Back"? I don't recall what songs are on it besides "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie," for which his TNG costars provide backing vocals. There's a copy somewhere in our...

Has it been established whether the Ephesian temple answer could legitimately be either "Diana" or "Artemis" (seeing as how they're considered two names for the same goddess)?

True story: I've heard the term "amuse bouche" exactly once in real life. From a waiter at a restaurant in San Diego's Gaslight district. The evening before my first in-person Jeopardy! audition about eight years ago.

Re: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Like, should players be penalized for saying "Who is Steve Bushemi?" because Buscemi himself pronounces it "Busemi"? You start down that road and you have to deny credit for people who stress the wrong syllable of "Kournikova". On the other hand, I don't think I want to live in a world where "A Mid...

Re: Friday, July 21, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Did anyone else notice that the final clue in "Fashion History" was essentially the same one that, as the last Daily Double, set Ken Jennings up to be defeated in his final regular game? (If you'll recall, he went into that FJ without a runaway lead, in large part because he'd missed both Daily Doub...

Re: Monday, September 19, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm not entirely happy with the clue for Laugh-In. The show may have started in the sixties, but Lily Tomlin didn't join the cast until fifteen episodes into the third season, which aired on December 29th, 1969. Yes, that squeaks her into the decade, but I'm rewatching that show in another window ri...
