Re: Thursday, April 30, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

And I forgot to add that Santo Domingo proper (not greater Santo Domingo) has a population of 2.9 million, which is more than Havana's 2 million, per Trebek.

Re: Thursday, April 30, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

NYC without the Bronx has 7,000,000. The clue did not say "completely on an island." I am not on Facebook so I am complaining here. Sorry.

Re: FJs for the 10/27/14 week

Been to Ruby Tuesday a few years ago in Philadelphia, I think near the airport. Was taken to Costco by a friend, never again! Have you all checked out this 1929 "Flight Simulator"? I haven't but was watching with someone else, and we both thought a real "flight simulator" is a computer, so 1929 didn...

Re: Tuesday, October 21, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I just wrote a long post and someone or something didn't like it. First it froze and then disappeared. I'll make this shorter. It wasn't so much Alex messing up the foreign language (Spanish in this case) but the experts who wrote the clue. The "wardrobe" should have been "el ropero," and they came ...

Re: Thursday, October 16, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have always known this book as "Voyage to the Center of the Earth," perhaps because I did not read it in the English translation, and that was my FJ answer. Would that not have been acceptable?

Re: FJs for the 7/7/14 week

My first complete FJ week in months and months. I had an advantage on the Secret Service one with the third part of the clue. About 60 years ago I went to Banking School (AIB) and the Secret Service gave lessons about how to check paper money. The first two clues could have been any other agency but...

Re: Thursday, July 10, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Separatists instead of Pilgrims; judges? I believe that "Pilgrims" was wrong and "Puritans" should have been accepted. The clue referred to the group that was persecuted. The persecuted group were Puritans. They didn't become "pilgrims" until they left on their "pilgrimage." What do you all think? ...

Re: Your Screenname: What inspired it?

Zee is my first initial and on the Sony Board, IIRC, I was Zee. So I decided to be Zee2 on this board. As for Avatars I am so low tech I wouldn't know how to begin, and I still can't uses smileys for the polls. On a couple of other boards, I use my first name, Zulema.

Re: Friday, February 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Econgator, You are right, Shanda is Yiddish, not Hebrew, I confused it with Kharpah, which is Hebrew. I have mostly heard them together. What is inappropriate is for Jeopardy to point out that he is Jewish in their roundabout way, when his offense had no relation to that fact. My opinion, and a few ...

Re: Friday, February 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

How many of you know what "shanda" means? I can count 2 or 3 of you, but I'm curious how many others. I was surprised it was included in the wording of a clue. I have been trying to log in for months, I am not kidding, and then decided to try again. I was very shocked at their use of a Hebrew word ...

Re: Wednesday, July 31, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Sorry, coming to the board today, I don't know if anyone has already mentioned this - I haven't read the whole 6 pages - but the researchers should have known not to say that LOX is not the name of a fish - Shuli was correct with Salmon - but LOX is the word for SALMON in Norwegian.

Re: FJs for the 4/15/13 week

We were pre-empted Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, and the alternative in the 700 TV range was also pre-empted at the same time. I have never found repeats, so I come here to see what I have missed. Missed the two FJ's I saw but would have gotten the three I missed seeing instantly.

Re: FJs for the 2/18/13 week

My best week in ages - Seems to me the TOC's FJ's were easier than regular ones, and I still don't know how to get the smilies to post. I have asked before but no one has responded to my plea, not that it matters that much.

On the rock from the volcano clue, what made it obsidian rather than basalt? Was there something in the clue as to smoothness, which would be the only difference?

August 13th repeat program

Did anyone here watch the beginning of this repeat program today? Before the actual program started, Alex Trebek came on and made some kind of positive statement regarding the continuity of Jeopardy!

By the time I realized that it was happening, I had missed it. What did he say?

Re: Thursday, June 21, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

For OrangeSAM, Online translators are great, especially for laughs. I do use them a lot for my translations of pharmaceutical names and diseases (I am a published translator) but even then they have to be checked against valid sources. My PARA and POR knowledge is native-born. "Libros de niños" can ...
