Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Big area in Russia 10,000 sq. mi. ==/== "big area" (The UP in MI is 16,000+ sq. mi.) It is if you have zero clue how big 10,000 square miles is. That could be the size of Mars, Minnesota, Monaco, or Merdian Mall. The other part of the clue that screamed "NOT SIBERIA" was that the clocks were moved ...

ETA: does "scary sherry" rhyme?
Not even a little bit

I would have gotten 37 on this one.
1) yes, they rhyme. ;)
2) beats the crap out of my "angry sangria" :lol:

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

This is probably the worst I've done since the online test started. Only 38 out of 50. ... One surprising get - I thought Hugo wrote "The Count of Monte Cristo" and expected it to be wrong, only to find out it was right (although I didn't include "pere"). Agreed on degree of difficulty. 37 here. Um...

Diet for $2000 brought a smile to my face. I've been to Porvoo. Don't recall the Diet being mentioned.

ETA: "Ring" $600: "a pole similar to a mast". Grrrr. A mast is a spar. And so is a boom.

At least Dave wrote down the name of a fish! I'm a bit surprised that Salmon P. Chase is not better known here on the board. As a child, I looked him up because I had read that he was depicted on the now-defunct $10,000 bill. If I'm remembering correctly, that was the largest U.S. denomination ever...

That Three Gorges DD was a killer (I've been near there - admittedly decades ago - and I had no idea what the clue was asking for). The Solomon DD was pretty difficult too. Both of them needed puzzling out, and Colby was so fantastic to watch as he did it. I got to Three Gorges Dam, but then figure...

what a waste of en episode...too much jibber jabbering...did they really need to go to a break, come back and interview and then go to another break? about as bad as an american football game...pure dull crap without much action [sarcasm] Look at the bright side: they got all 30 clues in.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Right, their game, their rules. But I am inclined to agree that the two aspects of Final ought to be inseparable and if one is played by only one player then the other should be, too. If teams actually got a chance to consult after seeing the Final category, that means they could also play mental M...

Frankly, I don't remember Brownsville in particular coming up in the whole border story. I feel like I might have come up with it if it didn't have that part in the clue, but I focused on that part, and kept coming out in Arizona instead of Texas. I once walked across the bridge from Brownsville to...

If he's referring to John Wayne, I'd guess it would be due to the shortness of the runways there. A 757 would have to take off much quicker t...
