Re: Thursday, April 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I clammed on both "snake" and "resistance" because I assumed they were asking for something more specific. :?

Yeah, I know Dryden called puns the "lowest and most groveling kind of wit.”
Dryden hated movies, too... ;)
Also Dryden is the guy who invented the entirely bogus "you shouldn't end a sentence with a preposition" idea.

I wonder how many folks got the King Lear quote from a certain episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series?
You can count me as one.

I got Presley right away. But I didn't notice that "monarchs" rather than "kings" meant the other was a queen. As a result it took about 35 seconds to come up with Franklin. :(

I had Meese, but could not have come up with Edwin in a useful amount of time.

"Five by five" means "loud and clear," for heaven's sake! Of course it's acceptable.

A search of the archive leads me to believe this is John von Neumann's first appearance on Jeopardy! Future players should note that Matt's pronunciation (von NOY-mahn) is more authentic than the von NEWman that you might think it is.

I cannot at this point reconstruct how I got Thursday's clue, so I didn't vote.

I think they would have to accept that (and I'm not just saying that because it was my response, too :D )

Re: Wednesday, February 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When Alex introduced the clue by saying (something like) "sounds serious, doesn't it?" I precalled Nash. But once the clue was revealed it was Eliot all the way.

Re: FJs for the 2/4/19 week

So Taming of the Shrew is polling at 19% right now. I imagine that's not a record low; can anyone tell me which clues have scored lower? Or, I suppose, more usefully, can anyone tell me how I can find out for myself which clues have scored lower? I did a search of my name and liederkranz to find so...

Re: Thursday, February 7, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had JFK before Alex finished reading the clue, then I had to take several seconds to do the math. OK, so now I need a one-letter presidential movie. I then decided that, while it is entirely possible that someone has made a movie about John Quincy Adams called "Q", that someone was very unlikely t...

Re: Tuesday, February 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I forget the clue value and the exact wording I'd accept "pronounce". (For future reference: If the game recap is sitting at the top of the thread, it means the game is in J! Archive.) Thanks for the support, and thanks for the hint about the archive. I guess I didn't know that the game recap and t...

Re: Tuesday, February 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got all the LT in the first round. I think that must be a first for me. In the "Express Yourself" category, I forget the clue value and the exact wording, but the response they accepted was "verbalize". My response was "pronounce". I'm giving myself credit for that. FJ! was pretty much an instaget...

So I'm trying to figure out what a Presl is, and in what way John isn't actually one, but is only like one. :D

Can the judges give me a ruling? :)

I said "Dutch East Indies Company."
