Re: Monday, February 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ!. I hereby renounce the term "Pavlovian", and will eliminate it from my J! vocabulary. Pavlovian conditioning pairs a unconditioned stimulus (classically, food) with a neutral stimulus (classically, a bell) to gradually create a conditioned response (salivation) when the neutral stimulu...

Re: Monday, February 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

MacKenzie really dodged a bullet tonight. With that FJ I thought for sure her run was done; instead, she's a superchamp. I've been impressed with the calm way she seems to buckle down in DJ and start racking up points. Keep it going, kid! We got to this show a day late, and now the Lenten hiatus is...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

What, the reunion itself, or someone telling you that it was gonna be this way? This thread's a joke. I'm dead serious. Did we really need a Friends reunion special? I'm broke. My humor's DOA. Is that what you are giving up for Lent? Will we have to wait 40 days for a pithy reply? I did say I was g...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

This is not a new episode, series, or one-and-done movie reunion; it is an untitled unscripted special, meaning a documentary or they just sit around and talk about it for however long the run time is. Do we really need this, now or ever? What, the reunion itself, or someone telling you that it was...

Re: FJs for the 2/17/20 week

What does that mean, "you got signed out?" And pardon me for once again not being up to speed on this stuff. You have to log in to this site to post here. This may happen more or less automatically for you and then you probably stay logged in even when you close the JBoard tab. But occasionally you...

What was the TOM for Los Angeles Times in Journalism for $400? Watts riots, large newspaper. Of course, you have to know Watts is in LA, but again, you just have to know stuff. I hate the "sometimes you just have to know stuff" excuse. Seems like a way to weasel out of lousy clue-writing. Exactly. ...

Re: FJs for the 2/17/20 week

When I went to the thread on the weekly FJ poll for the week of 2/10/20 instead of finding a place to vote, I found the percentages already posted, as if I had already been there and voted. I started to wonder if my memory has gotten so bad that I voted and forgot that I voted. Were the boxes still...

"Puratinism" seemed obscure for the top box, too.
Is that the way they spell it in Lebbenon?

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 2/21/2020

Where are the missed Daily Doubles? If the TC didn't include them on purpose, I agree with his omission. I figure that in the sport of a 4th podium game, the DD's shouldn't apply unless they were discovered immediately after a TS. Then we could make a play for them. Space permitting, I sometimes in...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 2/21/2020

I get you good-lucking smart guys confused. Which one is which? They both are. But how did I manage to type "good-lucking" for "good-looking"? I'm on a PC, so no autocorrect or anything. Weird. I went back and edited it, but I'm copping to the typo here so people don't think you're quoting me wrong.

Re: Tuesday, February 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did they change the rules about wagering Daily Doubles? On DD3, MacKenzie said "Let's do 3" -- which to me means $3. Even if that was obviously not what she meant, I saw nothing differentiating between either 300 or 3,000. $5 is the minimum so we can rule out $3. But like you, I wanted clarity on $...
