Israel's first moonshot was launched off a SpaceX rocket named, called "Beresheet," or "In the beginning" in Hebrew.
It's also the Hebrew name for the book of Genesis.

Re: Thursday, February 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This is my first time seeing Dave Madden. I missed his original run. I can, uh... see why he rubbed some viewers the wrong way. Between that and feeling that Brad has dodged his share of bullets and then some, I was really hoping the other teams would make a better showing. But things are looking ve...

Re: Thursday, February 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think “Beethoven’s Fifth” should have been negged or gotten a BMS. He did write 5 piano concertos after all, and the guy was playing the theme on a piano. "Beethoven's Fifth" always refers to the symphony, so I'm ok with that. It did sound as though Alan started to say "symphony" and stopped hims...

When I saw how much of a preamble there was, I predicted that this would just be a half-game like the Watson tournaments were.
I predict someone will have a sarcastic reply for this.

Mbclev probably had an aneurysm watching this episode. I, personally, was happy to see the contestants being relaxed and funny. Pet Peeve: having an aneurysm isn't a single event that one notices. It's an ongoing condition that one generally isn't aware of. Anyone reading this might have an aneurys...

This may have been answered in that other thread, but why no Roger Craig?

I also thought it curious that Team Buzzy used Alex Jacob for the SJ round. I would have used him for DJ. Or are they saving that strategy for later? I don't really understand the rules.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I haven't looked at the rules since I figure they'll explain them tonight. Will there be wagering involved? Because my one piece of advice to Brad would be: Let someone else wager. Preferably Alex Jacob.

Yep, I was waiting for Victor Borge in the background to sound off all the missing punctuation marks! :lol: Man that was a great routine. I wonder how many hours of practice it took to get to the point where he could rattle it off perfectly. Because it doesn't work unless you can nail the delivery ...

Here's Matt's response for anyone who wants to have another listen: I only hear "The, uh, Labor and Tory". In real time, I was sure that that was why he was negged. I hear "it's the, uh, Labour and Tory," but admit it could be open to interpretation. I do think the fact that Matt seems to realize h...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive -- 2/20/19

Ok, coming clean, I entered that game (one of my first) into the archive about 14 years ago. It was (and still is) transcribed from an audiocassette I recorded that show on, so there may be a few punctuation marks missing on some of the clues. 8-) Audiocassette, eh? That's dedication! But couldn't ...

I could have had a viral reddit or twitter meme if I'd been on the show. My response for the highest capital - lhasa apso. :lol: spoken like a true cat person. I did the same thing. And I think I've done it at least once before. The words just go together. They sound like some exotic Asian capital.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

For whatever reason I was just looking at the 1987 Michael J. Fox/Joan Jett movie "Light of Day" that someone had uploaded to YouTube, and as I was clicking around, I happened to hear the familiar 3-note "Times up" signal. So I scroll back, and sure enough, there's a guy in a hotel room, reading Ri...

Is there a reason that I blank on gypsum literally every time it comes up? There is a gypsum mine about 10 miles south of where I live. I have to drive through it to get downstate.
