Re: I'm Sick and Tired of my Posts getting deleated

1) publicly whining about moderation never ends well. 2) if you don't like having your posts deleted, stop making crappy posts like this: I'm ready for Ryan to take a hike sick of watching him and he has to be one of the worst Super Champions in history of Jeopardy. 3) LOLOL there's no freedom of s...

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is there a mathematical logic to Michelle's FJ wager of $4,400? Or did she just bet small? She could have bet $3,601 if she expected Ryan to cover Bunny, right? The best I can figure is that she simply didn't like the idea of falling below $10,000. She left $12,000, $10,200, $10,093, and $10,400 on...

Re: Reretaken Down

I don't get why angry music exists, personally. Doesn't that just make you angrier? Isn't that like poking the bear? I was able to end one of the worst nights of my life because I had angry music to listen to; I couldn't fall asleep because of intrusive violent thoughts, but angry music put the vio...

On FJ!: Had the clue not specified "the two founders", I would have answered Apple, but I happened to know Apple was founded by three people (Google "Ronald Wayne", or if you have an Apple device ask Siri "who founded Apple?") so I thought the "the two founders" data point was meant to eliminate Ap...

Re: Friday, February 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

It sounds like TPTB reconsidered their ruling on "Great Schism"; someone posted last week on the J! Facebook page saying they attended a taping in which Ryan was back. It'll air in July. For the record, I remember this post, and I definitely seem to recall that audience member not actually mentioni...

"Colorful berries" in the top box could be any of them. Haaaaah. Not if you watch Jeopardy regularly and recognize that when the writers shoehorn "colorful" into a clue it means the correct response is going to have a color in its name. Oh duh. Straw, rasp, and boysen aren't colors. Well, I have he...

The FJ! clue is a classic coin toss when I would never expect a 3/3 on the show while someone should always get it right.
And within three years it was no longer accurate, since

became the other in 1993.

Am I crazy, or did Alex pronounce Cerasus with a hard c? That led me further away from the answer. He did, but that made it sound more like cherries than I was pronouncing it in my head from reading the clue in the NY Times. Even if I waited until hearing him say it, I would still have been thinkin...

The FJ results make it all moot, but if Stel had gone TDD, not only would he have had second place entering FJ, but also a two-thirds game (albeit in Stratton's Dilemma*). *I just came up with a term for a Stratton's Dilemma game such as this one would have been with a Stel TDD, in which third place...

The presence of Turkey was a bit of a misdirect, offering an A-to-B path to an incorrect response (a common fruit cultivated in the Mediterranean/Middle East > dates or figs), rather than an A-to-C path to the correct response (Cerasus > looks like cerise > French for cherry). Not just French -- th...

I guessed Norway on Tuesday, could only muster the joke guess of "Val-Mart" on Friday. I got that the word "value" literally and directly figured into the retailer's name, but never got as far as shortening it to an initial.

"SOMEONE WITH EXTRA ACREAGE BETWEEN EYEBROWS & HAIRLINE MAY BE PUNNINGLY CALLED THIS". I forgot the category was BY THE NUMBERS so I guessed "highbrow".
Yeah, what was the correct response to that one? Didn't sound like something I was familiar with.
"Five-head" (as opposed to forehead)

I'm safe as long as at least one of these three things happens: 1) I tie or win, 2) ValadaC loses, 3) BoysenG ties or loses.
1 didn't happen, but 2 and 3 did. The bottom 5 of the rundle remained unchanged between Tuesday and today.
