Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

US CITIES This city's sister cities include Chongqing, China; Toyota, Japan; and Turin, Italy. What is Detroit? I really enjoy these, but my sense is that they're too hard for regular play. I could be wrong. Maybe you could run a poll or two with 8 to 16 of your FJs. In Season 35, boardies respondi...

Re: Tuesday, September 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That is a good question. What history has "th" for "Thailand" have, pre- internet codes? I think internet codes deserve as much respect as state postal codes, but has the show given it in the past? The internet code for Thailand is .th, so even if she did mean the internet code, she forgot the dot....

PLAYS

In most productions of this 1962 play, the title line is sung to “Here We Go ‘Round the Mulberry Bush” to avoid licensing fees.
Spoiler
What is Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

(because “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf” is owned by Disney, while “Mulberry” is public domain)

Oh, Alex...I have a feeling Oprah has praised other women authors in the 6 years since Maya Angelou passed - maybe even other ladies who've died besides Toni Morrison... :roll: Oprah has championed many writers in her career, but I think the stronger link that we were supposed to remember, and to w...

I followed Steve's (presumed) logic: mold --> penicllin --> Fleming. (And was impressed he included the first name.)

CLASSIC TV ACTORS On his death in 1982 this actor was buried with full police honors in Los Angeles and LAPD badge No. 714 was retired. Who is Jack Webb? Perhaps easier for older generations. Webb has only one mention in the J-archive in the last 8 years and his last as the correct response was in 2...

I'm in the Othello crowd along with Xiaoke - wrong side of Northern Italy, with Venice vs Genoa. I'm glad you mentioned this because I'd always assumed Othello was set in Spain because that's the country I associate with the Moors. I'll have to try to keep this fact filed away. Me too. On Xiaoke's ...

This was certainly harder than the first two but not super-difficult. But if you don’t make the connection with grandma’s name you’re sunk. I did waste some time trying to make sense of her name being spelled backwards. However, given her book’s popularity in high school English, it would be a fine...

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:
