How many of you negged Indy 500 $200?
Was that the Al Unser Jr clue? IIRC they gave us the Al and the Jr...unless there's another famous one? I know less about auto racing than your dog.
Exactly. What could you possibly have negged with?

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Eiffel Tower would have had its height measured in meters. 1,000 feet is 333.33 yards, which converts to around 307 meters. Of course hindsight is 20/20, but it seems more likely that the Eiffel Tower would have been built to be exactly 300 meters rather than 310 or 325 or another arbitrary hei...

Ouch if someone got to the right comedy and picked Tom Cruise thinking of Born on the 4th of July for the wrong biopic.

I got this FJ before Alex finished reading the clue, so I spent the think time watching the contestants, wondering "Do they know it's isthmus?"
Too soon.

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

It looks like Central Park is said to have 26,000 trees, certainly seemed quite plausible that this number could be in the 9,000s. Anyone have a good reason why one should know to go benches over trees? Maybe the precise number given? Obviously every bench had to be procured and installed, so would...

Re: Friday, May 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Claire was probably right to wager $4,501 given that Steve was more likely to go all in than stand pat, but it would have been interesting for her to wager $4,500 and risk the tiebreaker on both ends. What is the tiebreaker for a two-day finals tie for second place? I don't know this for certain, b...

It's like Claire wasn't even playing to win the tournament. Larry's smart wager on his DD all but locked up the championship for him. I thought FJ! was too easy. (A boundary between 2 colonies? Surely it can't be the Mason-Dixon Line.) Spent the last 25 seconds trying to think of any other famous b...

I love the style of that car! It reminds me of some recent "box" cars such as the Kia Soul, Nissan Cube, and Toyota Scion. I guess it's true that everything old is new again.
Yeah, but the older car is a good-looking car. The recent ones are monstrosities. :)

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The question asked where the character lived. Had Holden taken up permanent residence in California or was he just there for treatment? It says "lived", not "purchased a home and put down roots". I was stationed in Charleston, SC for 6 weeks for school. Does that mean I can't say I've lived in Char...

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Why is Holden Caulfield not correct? He tells the story in a hospital(ish place) in SoCal. That's certainly much closer than Kansas. I have no idea and when playing I thought he was NY. Who can find Rachel Lane and see if she has done anything about it? Or can someone figure out why perhaps HC is n...

Now THIS is the kind of FJ I expect in a Teachers' Tournament. Too bad about Ranjani, I was hoping she'd pull out the win after running Shakespeare and coming up with "syzygy".
But IIRC, she mispronounced "syzygy", did she not?
Hard 'g' instead of a soft 'g', but still meets the show rules.
