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

I almost hesitate to report for fear of jinxing myself: # of times taking and passing the test in the postcard era =2 # of times getting what I believe is a passing score on the online test = 4 (but I have taken the online test more than that -- I don't always do well) # of in-person auditions in th...

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

I suspect that the picture requirement is mostly a ploy to get people to beef up their profiles. I suppose it may also be used to check that the individual who shows up to an in-person interview matches the face that was uploaded. I suppose it could be an attempt to keep people from having someone ...

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

This is odd. I registered for the test, but when I got the confirmation email it said Thanks for registering for the Jeopardy! Online Test! We don't have a date for the next test yet, but we will keep you informed via email as soon as it is announced. Yet the website clearly says that the next test ...

I know I am being both petty and silly, but Eric's "bullfrog stance" bugs me. That was quite an impressive total, though.

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

I floundered on FJ, finally settling on the Transcontinental Railroad. The Pony Express popped into my mind at the very last moment. I wouldn't have had time to change my answer, so I'm counting it as a neg.

Re: TD 411 - Millennial Medley Revenge

I've been having some issues with my vision. It looks like I gave my username as "innaf" rather than "immaf"? Just thought I'd mention it.

Re: The crisis in TDs

I've skipped a bunch of TD'a recently because I've been busy, and because they've been too hard for me. I can't deal with multiple pop music and/or sports questions. Also, the TD's when you have to spend half an hour figuring out the logistics for a single question or bonus (give 9 or more answers w...

Re: Tuesday, December 4, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For FJ, my inner dialogue went something like this: Pirates! There are no Pirates in the NFL. Are you sure? Pretty sure, yes. There's a baseball team. Not football. Yes! The baseball team is from somewhere in Pennsylvania. And the corresponding football team is... the Philadelphia?... Eagles. Oh. Th...

Re: TD 399 -- Halloween-ish Quiz

They used to sell my favorite candy bar in a "fun size," but I haven't seen it that way in years, so I went with something else.

I have never read East of Eden and know nothing of its plot. I've never read Absalom, Absalom either, but it's the first (and only) thing I thought of so I went with that.

Somehow I thought Notre Dame was in Terre Haute. Somehow I thought Notre Dame was in Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Nor was I sure about the reference being to Notre Dame. Basically, FJ was a WAG gone wrong for me.) Played FJ from this thread. Jeopardy! was pre-empted by coverage of multiple gas leaks, expl...
