Re: Friday, July 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought this FJ was an excellent clue that made us put several elements together to get it. I did the math, added in a little bit of history and logic, got to the right war, right year, and.....missed it by THAT much!!! Wonder if they would have accepted just "Concord.?" ehhhhh, probably not. Dan...

Reassuring to learn that Lexington and Concord would have been accepted. I didn't want an FJ fail to end the season (though my best streak of the season ended last night... :evil: ), and I was too unsure to stop at Lexington, I doubt I've ever heard them uncoupled. battlefields.org (The American Ba...

Re: Friday, July 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tough way to end a season with a clumsy clue syntax. I saw 1854, not the Civil War, then thought "battle that started a war - Fort Sumter!". I totally ignored my own filter. In general, I don't think of battles as being the "start" of a war - even though Pearl Harbor is an obvious exception. WW I s...

I hadn't heard of the 1917 Silent Parade before, but, playing along at home, I should have been able to deduce NAACP from a "rights organization founded in 1909" (I think that was what the clue said). Dave clearly said "Christmas Attucks" for the last response of Double Jeopardy! I backed up and wa...

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As a former longtime mastiff owner and devotee of the breed, I agree that "mastiff" should not have received a BMS. To say a bullmastiff is a "type of mastiff," however true in some sense, plays fast and loose with the established names for breeds. (It's a little like arguing "dog" should have rece...

As for FJ, I guess I'm the only one who has never heard of paramnesia - if it hadn't been for the "sound familiar," I might not have gotten it. I really don't believe I've ever seen or heard "paramnesia" in any context so I'm curious how it was so commonly known by everyone else. I feel like, witho...

I’m not a judge, but I wouldn’t take D-Day. I think he was just throwing that in and not saying that was the “real” answer. It never occurred to me to give the date. It's the common name for the event, and it wasn't a dates category... I always take Alex's utterance of an alternate response to mean...

Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

I am very glad that this has turned out as well as it did. I continue to believe that Dr. Jass's actions should not have been prosecuted. It looks to me like an instance of pre-whistle blowing activity by Dr. Jass that yielded information the Adrian College administration found embarrassing; and (i...

Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

Is there a zero missing in the attorney fees? In other parts of the country you can't sneeze around a lawyer for less than $16,000. That was the school’s attorney fees. Maybe most of their work was done by house counsel that was already on payroll. Glad she didn’t get jail time. I wonder what her n...

Wonder how far Ryan is going to take his streak now that he's been given a do-over and taken good advantage of it. This win moves him well into the top 100 all-time in regular-season winnings, and he seems highly motivated to do more. He gives too many incorrect responses in the main game, in my op...

When Jaws first came out, a friend and I were standing in the very long line to get in and were discussing how we were going to take my little sailboat (fondly named "Le Vent") out for a sail the next day. After the movie, we looked at each other and said "Hell no!" So did you sell it to a non-movi...

Later Vincent got caught blurting #1 on Carlin’s list and the show had to use an audible beep to censor it. Vincent’s mouth was not blurred as some shows do, so it was easy to lip read it started with S, ended with T and had four letters. Lip read? The word was more audible under the beep than a ce...

Grey Gardens as a NHOI seems not easy to me with so many ways for it to ping someone's radar. Movies, TV, stage, pop culture references, prior J! clues... The original film by the Maysles brothers is one of the great documentaries of the 20th C. Little Edie Beale is an unforgettable character. http...
