Re: FJs for the 7/26/21 week

Well Hawking is polling at 118%. I'm not sure if he would be proud that he is so well known or disappointed that the math is simply wrong. The counting routine used, incidentally, is a hack. It's not PHP's default behavior. It's also done by the viewtopic page which is used to build every thread yo...

That presupposes that people purchase sports franchises for financial gain, which I don’t think is supported by the data.

Well done by Matt to sweep the week and do his part towards RIF getting $204,800 for a 5-day total. I believe Matt now holds the record (well, will hold) for appearing opposite the most J! hosts? Really don't understand how all 3 could miss this. I can only guess that Andrew has never heard this ro...

Re: Wednesday, July 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I could have sworn LaVar said "the horror" when he revealed Apocalypes Now. I had to double check whether the category was 'Word' or 'Words' after that. I don't remember exactly what he said, but I thought he started with 'horror' and then said 'the horror'. The former to give the response, the lat...

I haven't seen much mention of this in any of the three threads from Matt's run, so I assume that the topic and practice aren't novel enough to warrant discussion by regular contributors to the board, but his practice of simply asking "What's ______?" with no regard for the proper interrogative wor...

LSV has no chance at a pefecto today as TV SHOW EPISODE TITLES has to have at least one he cannot get.
I think I felt today (with a one day delay) how you felt about The Knick. One beat after Watchmen's episode titles, "Yeah, no one's getting that one."

good FJ question.

IMO, Wenceslas is a harder grab than Kafka or Holy Roman Empire.

Re: How Did George Stephanopoulos Do as Host?

8 from me although I probably would have gone 8.25 or 8.5 if those were choices. George seemed quite proficient at hosting and other than the slight rasp in his voice I noticed at times there was nothing else that stood out to me to cause me to be aware constantly that a guest host was in charge.
