Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

I'm still working full time in the same office, essentially. Whenever somebody takes a day off a rumor is started that they are out sick with coronavirus. Then they come back to the office, dispel the rumor, and everybody wonders why they bought into it. And then somebody else takes a day off and it...

Re: Friday, June 12, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It looks like all filming in Los Angeles was cleared to restart today so hopefully it won't be too long before we get new episodes of Jeopardy!

I got Toni Morrison. I didn't think of Maya Angelou or Alice Walker so that made it easy. I got balaclavas mixed up with balalaikas.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Breathed a sigh of relief on seeing that "Crohn" was right. I was nervous about Colitis, since the question said the physician's name was the disease's name. Also, there was nothing in the clue to suggest that the namesake doctor was more worthy than the other two, so perhaps it was just coincidenc...

I've looked it over and over for the last few minutes, and I see no problem with my answer, so I will come to you judges for a ruling: Particle accelerator for Large Hadron Collider? I see no hint that they were looking for the specific CERN collider, but just "this device" that it is... I said par...

It's harder for me to remember that Seneca tutored Caligula. A lucky thing, as it was Nero he tutored. Oops. Thanks for the correction. The silver lining is that my embarrassment will help me remember it now. It looks like I'm the only one that said Prairie Dog. Now I know that meerkats live in Afr...

Is there any way that I should have picked Aristotle for Alexander's tutor, and not Socrates or Plato? The emphasis on science? Chronology? Or is this just a YEKIOYD, otherwise it's a "pick one of three, and good luck"? Canadian provinces strike again. The six southern provinces from BC to Quebec a...

41R, 3/4 on big clues. I did not get FJ. I didn't have a path to the correct answer and I was stuck thinking of profanities. I said Prairie Dog instead of Meerkat. I'm not really sure how to differentiate the two. Google Translate tells me that the German version of Prairie Dog is Präriehund. I miss...

Halfway joking, but also half serious - poll request on whether or not cheese and geese rhyme.
John Cleese would say no.

37R. 2/4 on big clues. Missed Prague and "At Last." Sanctions has a typo in the archive. I mispronounced Bill Nighy and Aeneid. I recently came across Thomas Harris and The Breakers while studying but I missed them anyway. I'll get them next time. 1/5 on Great American Songbook. Those old songs just...

Los Angeles is considering a ban on fans and sporting events until 2021. I understand Jeopardy isn’t in the city of LA but could such a ban extend to things like TV show tapings?

Did the show use some editing technology to speed up the speech without changing voice and intonation? Is the rerun faithful to the original airing? It's like all three of them had triple espressos (since Red Bull wasn't a thing yet, lol..) Red Bull was most definitely a thing in 2004. Heck, Monste...

3/3 on DDs. 41R. Lots wrong. I immediately thought of El Salvador and dismissed it because it's not a primarily English speaking nation. Thought of Algeria but then dismissed it because they would speak Arabic or French. Wandered off to Asia and then decided to go back to the Western Hemisphere and ...

But...I mean, if I said "Who is Celine?" for Celine Dion, I think Alex would at least pause a beat, and perhaps BMS me or give me a "we need more" look off-camera. One time they asked for the cartoon character who lived in a pineapple under the sea, or something like that, and a contestant rang in ...

I read "Island of the Blue Dolphins" as a class in 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade at the same school. Somebody messed up the curriculum and nobody has ever believed me. The teac...

Why did Mina get a boo-hiss for Ben-Hur? I got The Ten Commandments but considered Ben-Hur and Spartacus. I think "three" should have been correct without requiring threescore.
