Re: Wednesday, November 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said "face the music" on Blank the Blank for $200 and don't see how that could be wrong. Judges? It's not compensing a certain musician, so I'd have to say no. I don't think I've ever heard the word "compense" before so that threw me. I haven't either. I at first assumed Mark transcribed "compens...

ETA: Found the "kick baler" video. If they sold 100 of these things I'd be amazed, it certainly isn't a mainstream rancher getup. It looks fun at least for 5 minutes or until the first load has to be dumped. https://machinesvideo.com/rolling-oaks-farm-hay-baling-396 The John Deere 348's been in pro...

Re: Hosting Question

"When you get too famous/scrutinized not to sweep things under the rug anymore" He should have deleted all his old tweets the second he got signed up as "Ambassador of the Game", if not months before. Agreed. That should've been a condition of the job. I never had any aspirations to fame, but it st...

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

But not too old. The Declaration of Independence is definitely too modern, so go back. But if you hit the Code of Hammurabi, you've gone too far. Shoulda pulled over and asked for directions somewhere in the middle ages. But considering that my knowledge of world history is almost nonexistant, I fi...

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

The fact that I don't know anything ABOUT the Magna Carta other than "important early document" sank me here and caused me to clam. I really need to work on this "half-knowing" thing. So many things I'm aware exist, but couldn't tell you what they are. The mention of knights should point to a very ...

Resurrecting a zombie thread here, I know, but was Paul shafted out of $2400 (total swing) with his "incorrect" response of "What is CAD?" in INVENTIONS $1200?

I do want to see Alex's wish fulfilled and have Betty White come in to do at least one game. Maybe she could do Celebrity week?
I wouldn't call it a wish but rather a means to generate laughter from his audience.

Re: What ought to happen next?

Not much continuity with a revolving door I think the continuity is in terms of new shows being produced and aired. Not necessarily in seeing the same host every week. Agreed. And secondarily there's some continuity if the host is already a familiar face on the Jeopardy! set. That's why Ken Jenning...

Clark County was a triple stumper in the first game of 2020. Jimmy read the clue: "A Census Bureau map shows that, from 1930 to 2000, the population density of this Nevada county increased by more than 5,000%" The clue showed a map of Nevada with a legend saying "Percent Change in Density by County....

I said to wiggle the doorknob, instead of jiggle. Or maybe it was the opposite. Either way, I'm giving it to myself. I said jigger and I too am taking credit. I remember there was an episode of QI that said the word "jigger" has the most different definitions of any word in the OED, so I wouldnt do...

I agree that bill and coo is not a phrase that I can recall hearing, but spotted “Bill and” and the definition of making soft sounds of affection, I said coo without hesitation... so maybe I have heard it somewhere? That describes my situation exactly. I can't swear I haven't heard the phrase and I...

Behind the Music for $2,000 was huuuuuuuuuuuuge negbait for "Born in the USA". Couldn't shift gears after that neg even with 2/3 of the title staring me in the face. I don't know about huuuuuuuuuuuuge, but the miss was predictable I suppose. I knew 1975 was 9 years too early for Born in the USA so ...

Oh, the other thing that needs to happen: They need to provide a reasonably priced streaming option for cord cutters who don't get TV reception. There are a LOT of people who are saddened by Alex's death but who truthfully haven't seen him in years. They like him, but not enough to take on a ridicu...

Ha! Edwards was one of my precalls. I went a little bit down that road, trying to make the clue work for him. But I quickly decided Franklin, another precall, was a better fit. Anyway, at least you didn't say Washington! :D

File this under “getting it right the wrong way”. Let’s see, what is Greek for horse? A filly is a horse. So this must be the Philippines. I did realize that was poor reasoning but by then the music was into the second verse and didn’t have time to figure out something else. A get is a get, you bet...

Who'd have thought the Greeks had such along word for "judge"?
They don't. Only the last two syllables mean "judge". The first three mean "Greek".
