Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 26, 2016

Based on the rulings from you all, I probably got 36. Again, not sure if it will get an audition, but it's my first "passing" score ever in about 5 years of trying on the adult test, so I'm pretty happy.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 26, 2016

Sherder's video is up.

Judges:

Congesta for the wagon.
Iberia for the peninsula.
Dowton Abbey for the show (because the way the first N is sometimes not clear to me I wasn't sure whether it existed).

Thoughts?

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 26, 2016

For the Padma Lakshmi question ... I know (now) that they were looking for Top Chef, but I am 95% sure that she's been a judge at least a few times on Chopped. The question specifically said "Judge", didn't it? I think that question might be ambiguous enough. I think they'll see it and count it .. ...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 26, 2016

I think this is the first time ever I've passed the adult test. I got 37, according to Steve's list. The only two that might be a slight question mark are a mispelling on the wagon (I've never been able to spell it well), and I might have said Iberia instead of Iberian. But even if those are labeled...

Re: Monday, September 14, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Add me among those that knew what poem they were asking for, but not the correct title. I said "The Road Less Traveled". Strong premiere overall with a good game, although is it just me, or did some of the $2000 clues seem particularly easy for $2000? I'm curious what Vermonter feels about the $0 wa...

Re: Updated Jeopardy! website

One thing I'm curious about is that if Catherine is (deservedly IMO) eligible for the next TOC, why someone like Molly Lalonde isn't? Molly and Catherine were champs in a similar time frame, but yet only Catherine is eligible, which I'm curious about.

Re: Wednesday, June 24, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Just saw Keith's video. What was the math on this that made this wagering situation so weird, particularly on Matt's end? I can't pinpoint it exactly. By that I mean it's not a break point or something like A+B=C or evenly spaced scores. What in the numbers made it weird? EDIT: Edit to avoid confusi...

UniquePerspective's Career in D Rundle: 2014-2015 I have no idea what happened with me, but I just couldn't get it together this season. Were they especially harder, or did I just suck more?

Re: LL65 (For the LLamas amongst us)

And ThreeIfByAir gets his revenge on me. I was on the fence about whether to give you a lower or a higher score on the Queen question, as I wondered whether you were in England still at the time of that concert. I just sort of went with my gut and also based it off of what I remember to be a fairly ...

Re: LL65 (For the LLamas amongst us)

Ugh.

My season's just going down the crapper fast.

For some reason, I'm either just not processing the clues well enough, or they're just not falling in my lap.

Ah well. E Rundle, I'm coming down home honey.

I don't remember a lot of his original run, so I'm not sure what you mean by a Tom Kavanaugh vibe.

So now that it's over, let's look at some pros and cons. Because I don't feel as strongly negative towards this as my fellow Jordan.

I feel for this new champ. I really do. To take his place on THAT ending is just...ugh. I hope if the show is continued he gets to be the first champ, and if it's not he gets SOMETHING for his efforts.

To be fair, this one also seems to mention puzzles and what not, so it's probably not exactly the same thing.
