My mnemonic for Central America: big gray elephants have never caught pneumonia.

Presidential Sweet had me pre-calling Reagan/jelly beans and nothing else.

Anyone else learn "chartreuse" from the Kmart store brand crayons?

Re: Wednesday, March 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would have been in trouble as an NBA fan/Kansas alumnus had I missed The Process, but what confused me was the Kansas City Royals' rebuilding process over the early part of this decade was called the exact same thing. The team's GM once said "trust the process" at a press conference, and this phr...

He's back! Iain Armitage presented a clue.
Did they kidnap that kid? How many freaking clues did they record? :lol:
12 so far according to the archive. Feels like a lot more.

Alex is normally good with accents, but his Massachusetts one ("pahk your cah") wouldn't fool anyone.

For Arizona's state firearm I said "six-shooter." According to Wikipedia, it's actually a Colt Single Action Army revolver with "a revolving cylinder holding six metallic cartridges."

Random question but did anybody know what the lapel pin that was wearing was for? You just don't see many on the show wearing them.
I believe it was for Donate Life America (organ donation).

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

This strikes me as an FJ where the text of the clue demands a response with a specific spelling.

Re: FJs for the 12/16/19 week

I don't get at all how 'third wheel' is such a popular wrong answer. Carriages have four wheels, not two. Therefore a superfluous wheel would be the fifth wheel. : Having heard the term "third wheel" countless times and never "fifth wheel" will make you wonder if there's a type of carriage with two...

I overthought this and went with "registered to vote" since the date was September instead of November. I'm counting it as "close but no cigar..." :x Glad to see I wasn't the only one to go down that path. I should have taken the extra quarter second to realize that 1870 was not a presidential elec...

I use LEXIS-NEXIS for my work. A search for "anaphylaxic" brings up 118 hits with repeats, but mostly from news/wire articles. Here is one from UPI in which a pediatrician is quoted (note that he uses it as a noun as well, for a patient): A shot of adrenalin, such as that contained in the Epi-pen or...

Re: THE "J" EFFECT $1000 clue 12/5/19 [SPOILERS]

Born and raised north of Boston. "Jimmies" is very familiar to me, though I hadn't noted the distinction between the chocolate and rainbow toppings. I believe Brigham's, a former ice cream/restaurant chain, used "jimmies" on its menu. While the restaurants have since closed, the brand is still sold ...

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I presume that a first name is always sufficient for a fictional character. If they've made exceptions to this I don't remember them. "Alex from Family Ties" was ruled incorrect on an FJ: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=3959 But TBH, I probably said "Napoli" because of Mike Napoli, fo...
