Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Let me ask you this. What have you learned about The Right Stuff since you posted that you knew nothing about it? That there is a thing called "The Right Stuff". Is it ever going to come up again? Highly unlikely. I doubt "amuse bouche" is ever going to come up again either. I mean highly unlikely....

The subject of the Final Jeopardy! clue spoiled it in a Tuesday afternoon post (as I discovered when I saw the link below in my Facebook newsfeed). I believe I would have gotten it anyway.

I'm up against JBoarder kickerofelves today. Best of luck!

(I'm also going to get relegated, but I think I deserved it; I was completely out of my league with the other B Typ(e)s.)

Re: Wednesday, December 6, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Kristina needed to get FJ right to have a chance (because $3,400 is less than twice the difference between 1st and 2nd). Her wager gave up any chance of winning against rational wagers from her opponents.
