Re: Friday, February 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Because obviously Alex Jacob knew this one. It was just a brain fart and came to him a second too late. There was no brain fart about it. So are you saying he was trying to kill time? He only bet $100, so it's certainly a possibility. His strategy may have been just to "kill" the DDs. I wouldn't do...

Re: Friday, February 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not much sense rooting for team Colby now because it means rooting against someone else. They made a nice recovery and the third wildcard isn't going to be able to just back into the next round. Good solve by Colby for the doubling up (close enuf). NHO the Emma lady, can't even come up with the last...

I started with Somalia because of the pirate-based-economy a few years back, it obviously was the furthest east. Farthest. Not meaning to pick on you, but it's my latest grammar annoyance, and if someone else looks it up and learns it, so much the better. It'll depend on where somebody looks it up....

Someone get the paddles out for Team Colby. Set them for 200 Joules. Now, put them on the writer who wrote that Physics $2000 clue :evil: (see what I did there?). If you don't put in the "Physicist James" in the clue as TOM, I wouldn't go down the James Clerk Maxwell rabbit hole. Professionally, my ...

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This tournament is going to be a lot of fun. I've been kind of "meh" about the whole thing, mainly because I can't see the general audience even noticing the format change or remembering the contestants well. My intuition is always wrong, so it's probably a raging ratings success. Some viewers may ...

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm going to have to start embracing scary sounding categories. I'd already written off FJ from the category and they gave me a nursery rhyme and enough TOM to know it wasn't Ring around the Rosie about the Plague. I did have "Hello Dolly" loaded up when I saw the date, and then the switch was easy....

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I can't think of any good reason why they would want a photo when you register unless they intend on using it during the selection process. This seems wrong. Okay, it's a TV show and I understand they would like telegenic contestants but it is so very contrary to the J! ethos. On the bright side, I...

Re: Monday, February 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I know this isn't the place for snark, but did that one contestant say (and I'm paraphrasing), "Yes, I haven't been west of the Mississippi but I have been to Africa. This was in 2001, pre-9/11 *luckily*" Is there something I'm missing about going to Africa pre versus post 9/11? Of course - he didn...

Re: Monday, February 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ Fail. For no good reason, I kind of combine Jules Verne and H.G. Wells although War of the Worlds is pretty obviously more modern and not involving horses and buggies. I mentally went toward Arthur C. Clarke and knew it was not the right era either. If I'd remembered Wells, I would have gone with...

Re: FJ Poll for 2/8/2019

Since you asked: Here's a singleton: Romeo and Juliet. Two possible reasons: 1) The category was Shakespeare Comedies.

when is the next reveal? I think the last answer was my only good one. My only chance of finishing in the top half is if everyone else sheeped on two of the mother sauces, or missed the question entirely. i'm pretty sure i took the sheep on this one because i have no f'n idea what a french sauce is...

Your miss reminds me of this ad campaign:

Re: Toughest FJ! clues Season 32 (9/14/15 - 7/29/16)

the three EASIEST of these clues, the PC clue would have made my list. That's not to say it was easy, but the answer did occur to me within 30 seconds and once it occurred to me I knew for sure it was right. But I can easily see not getting any traction on that clue and finding it impenetrable. (Gr...

Re: Toughest FJ! clues Season 32 (9/14/15 - 7/29/16)

I got only Scott Kelly, ironically the third hardest. I figured out the astronaut part quickly and only worried about his twin's name, which I can't recall. I wonder how Gabby is doing now? I voted for Kierkegard, Hesse, and Stromboli as 3 words completely out of my vocabulary. If I named 12 countri...

Eric - you have several fans here if you check in. Good job of gameplay which got you through but today a sub-optimal wager (on the DD) by the opponent did you in from the lead.

Though I understand that "pope" = "pontiff" was an important part of the clue, any chance they accept "proselytizing" for "pontificating?"
Not a prayer! :lol:
