I wonder if I can just sign up and take the test again for fun. Would I risk bumping someone from a legitimate audition slot? I hope not.
Answer "yes" to the "has been on Jeopardy" and you won't be considered for an audition.

Believe it or not, I was bothered by the clue mentioning 27 boxes of cereal, because Costco only sells cereal in double boxes. So I would have preferred an even number.
Do they not sell triple boxes?

Re: Thursday, February 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So John buys stuff cheap at thrift shops and sells them for a profit online? That rubs me the wrong way a little bit. The thrift store gets stuff for free and sells them for a profit. Yes, but there are people who would say that the point of the thrift shop is to offer these items in an accessible ...

To me, I thought it was the sort of Final where if you've heard of the work, it would be a "what else could it be?", especially with the "despite the title" and the apparent non-apology of Socrates.

I wonder if it's a coincidence given today's FJ, but today is National Weatherperson's Day.
It's absolutely a coincidence, considering this game was originally supposed to run on Feb. 19.

BTW, when's the last time we had an entire stand-and-stare category? I feel like it was recent-ish.
I found CIVIL WAR LITERATURE in this game: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5485

The timer saved us from an 0-for-5 in a Hitchcock category in DJ at some point this season.

Re: Thursday Night Football/J! pre-emptions this fall

Fortunately, that's a significantly smaller section of the population. Denver is the only FOX market to air J! at 8 PM Eastern or later, and only 4 others (Cincinnati, Syracuse, Salisbury MD, and Lake Charles LA) air it at 7:30 Eastern. So, about 3 million households are possibly affected by this (...

Thank you to the writers for not asking for the work as even if I recalled the right one (no guarantee) I would not have wanted to navigate the article minefield. Plus it’s a lot to write.

Why was it a crime?
Apparently Congress didn't like being protested against. (You don't say!)

First Circuit agreed with the "Why was it a crime?" and introduced it to the First Amendment, but SCOTUS didn't agree.

On the other hand, it's not hard to find explanations of the difference between the Italian greyhound and the whippet. I guess the judges decided they are so close it's not fair to ask someone to tell them apart with a picture... As long as an Italian greyhound is at all similar to an English greyh...

Also saw no way to figure out Montreal or Haiku in the top box.
Canada + French? I'm legit offended.

Still the case as deep as clue 17, in fact.

Until recently, they would even run promo graphics over the contestant names during the intro. Unl...
