Re: Tuesday, December 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

NHO garbanzo beans, swiss chard, bearnaise sauce, or tarragon either. HOW do you know all this ultra-fancy food?! I’d be willing to bet that canned garbanzo or chickpeas are sold in every supermarket in the U.S., and Swiss Chard in most of them. I've heard of chickpeas, but never knew that they had...

Re: Wednesday, December 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If you went to school in the US, I'm not sure how you can say that you never studied JFK in school. And, even if it was glossed over, the existence of a controversy about how JFK was killed is pretty hard to ignore since it gets brought up every single year on the anniversary of the shooting. It's ...

Re: Thursday, December 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was one ugly J! round as the players were slow to get untracked. Given my previous post in this thread, perhaps I shouldn't make this comment. To me, "untracked" is a negative thing, as in "derailed". Perhaps you meant "on track". Or perhaps the language is changing again without my knowledge ...

Dave Leffler's response " What is Daylight Savings Time ?" is grammatically ambiguous. It is more properly Daylight Saving Time or Daylight Time . The late William Safire, who at the time wrote the NY Times column On Language , addressed this in 1986: https://www.nytimes.com/1986/04/27/magazine/on-...

Did anyone take a music shortcut for the FJ! clue with “parrot” to “Parrothead” to Buffett to FL? That was the kind of thing in my head to entertain myself during think time.
Talk about negbait. A Parrothead would remember that JB was part owner of the Dolphins a few years back.

I went to GBA, thinking that was a better message.

Two things leading me away from SSB:
1. The lyrics are about a battle between US and UK,
2. The melody is from a British drinking song (Oh, that might be a positive).

Re: Tuesday, November 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

We had a Uranus clue in this game. Contestants should get double the value if they add a guffaw to their response. Or they can at least add ", Alex?" to the end of their response. So much funnier to say "What is Uranus, Alex?" Maybe points for saying "Where" instead of "What" as well. We'll return ...

Looks like I've been doing the Vulcan hand sign wrong all these years - no trekkie here.

I was surprised the Obama chair is in Stockholm. The Peace Prize is awarded in Norway and there is a Nobel Peace Prize Museum on the waterfront in Oslo.

I went with Alien on FJ! as well. :(

On another topic, I see that a question about Kennedy Lewis and Huxley dying on the same day finally made it on the air.
And was slightly easier for those whose feed is on a one day delay.

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? Not a gymnast. Ah, Y2K. In 1999, my bo...

I haven't seen this yet, pre-empted by breaking news.

Fire (reporting) fatigue is setting in. I saw a news crew reporting from a backyard that the only thing lost there was a barbecue pit. I couldn't help but think "How ironic."

Maya's response of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" got me rooting for her. Same here. There have been some ads for Dear Evan Hansen during Jeopardy! itself on WABC (NY). So thanks, whatever's been making WTNH's signal hard to watch. I didn't know it involved social media, but I knew it was a rec...

I would reserve the term medical professional for physicians and refer to the broader panoply of nurses, dentists, chiropractors, optometrists, etc. as health care professionals.
So you're okay with a "health care professional" performing a root canal?

A dentist isn't a medical professional.
Feel free to express this sentiment directly to one of them while you're in the chair.

Voting percentages are not working.
From what I can see, the problem isn't with the pct calculation but the vote count. The vote count now equals the total number of yes votes.
