Re: J! in the Media

I just saw that on February 27th (I think), Netflix will be trotting out the Alex Collection, the Cindy Stowell Collection, and the Seth Wilson Collection.

Re: 2020 Online Test announced - Jan 28, 29, 30

I think we're defining "being in the pool" differently, then. I have always defined "being in the pool" as having been invited to, AND completing, an audition. If, as you've pointed out, the disqualifier is "physically going to an audition", then how is being in the pool irrelevant? Fair point. Bei...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Congrats to our own RobertsLA for winning the Aubrey-Maturin 1DS. I read all 20ish books (though not in about a decade) and I could answer exactly zero of these questions. I think a really hard, really specific quiz about these novels is perfect - they have the same sort of detail and trivia themse...

Re: 2020 Online Test announced - Jan 28, 29, 30

Well why not, I guess? Just registered. We'll see what happens. If I understand the rules, we can't take the online test for real until after the 18 months is up. Taking it early could result in disqualification. "If you have never been a Jeopardy! contestant and have not participated in a Jeopardy...

Re: Friday, January 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I agree that John was underwhelming today, but I wonder if he would have done better if it were not the last game of the taping session and his third game. But the seven hills of Rome and the Pieta seemed to be pretty much gimmes. It seems that Heather could have afforded to bet a little bit more t...

Re: Friday, January 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Bourne author and Tahiti painter were the two that I thought a champ for an extended run should get. And the 7 Hills. I figured writing 20 to 22 hours a day, it must be someone quite prolific and Danielle Steele was the most prolific one I could think of. The rest of the clue meant nothing to me.

His museum (such as it is) is in a mall in Fargo. I think North Dakota claims him as one of their own.
I used to see Maris Distribution trucks driving Bud around when I was going to UF. Took me a year or two to find out that he was the owner (and later his sons).

I did also get Lawrence Welk. How many other famous people are from North Dakota? Roger Maris?

Roger Maris is from Hibbing, Minnesota.
He spent much of his early years in Fargo, though, so maybe that's what he was thinking about.

Well, I liked that FJ and it's probably because I got it right. :D I really think they were shooting for us to think of someone in the royal family who's not a Windsor by blood. I knew Philip was born in Greece, so figured that means he's got less British blood than the other royals who married in,...
