Re: Friday, April 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'd like to see the playing field leveled by adding a delay time to the champ's buzzer, maybe just 0.01 second per game won, maybe maximizing at 0.1 seconds or so. It's just weird to have a knowledge and recall game decided by gaming a joystick so to speak. Uhhhm, No. Just No. That reminds me of ho...

Re: Friday, April 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Flipping through sports talk stations, I ran into the same live-stream narration and this time noted the channel. The hosts on Mad Dog Radio were calling the game like a live stream and pre-called the bet amount to break the old 77K record if "he gets this final jeopardy about British Monarchs right...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

An ERRATUM needs to be put on the Plutonium clue because Pluto ain't a Greek god. Although I still got it because it is the second element after Uranium. And for anybody needing help with the order, the planetary triple planetary double + piss ant rock is the same order; i.e. Uranus/Neptune/Pluto -...

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. 100 miles*100 miles =10,000 square miles. oops! :oops: FJ was instaget - if they conti...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did they say plutonium was named after a Greek God? Isn't Pluto the Roman version of Hades? I gather the replay booth in New York has confirmed the call about the Greek-ness, but I had the same issue. Even more so, I kind of thought it was the first transuranic to be discovered, and then they backf...

Could you talk about your experience with the buzzer? Did you feel you were ringing in too early or too late? Did the contestant coordinators give you any feedback at the break? Did you change your grip at all during the game? Question, and I apologize if this is breaking "Fight Club" rules: I'm in...

TIL that feet of clay was biblical in origin. Kudos to the writers for a great clue, and to James for squaring up the barrel on it. I love the "Sounds like Pig Latin" category, but "Power Play" doesn't work. "Ower Play" sounds like Plower. I can't recall the other clues because of the speed of play ...

For my part, I hope some smart decisions will be made in the rebuild, not to try to replicate 12th century construction but to make the cathedral much more disaster-proof than ever before.

Kevin - welcome aboard! This FJ was a multi-plex like last week's clue about a Hollywood group. I saw July and thought D-Day and then processed 1945 and switched to V-E Day, although I couldn't figure out which living person might be the chosen image. Maybe the famous sailor #metoo offense?

I'm not too invested in who is the GOAT, etc.., but James definitely has introduced a paradigm shift. We will never be in awe at $30K averages when the next shiny object comes along :). C'mon! You'll be in awe when I get on the show, even if I don't make it to Final! I will legitimately be in awe i...

When James commented that he's running out of dates to wager, Alex quipped that he could use his birthday. That wager would be a cool $72,240. Just think, if he didn't hold back on his DD wagers today, he could have safely done so today! HOLY SHIT I'M JUST WRITING THAT DOWN BUT MY HEAD ISN'T WRAPPE...

(correct per groups of 10 - 8/6/7/6/5 = 32/50 ) I felt this one was easier and was surprised to wind up at "only" 32 (compared to last nights' grind to make 30). I think it was a 8/10 start, and only 4-5 stand and stares. I also left 3-4 on the table due to time, or a brain fart on the Hun (said Kha...

Great game by Stephanie and Lewis - ironically a weaker co-challenger might have given Lewis the upset with his sole get. James di...
