Not a single guess. Can't believe I missed Triscuit since I eat them all the time.

I knew Lanolin because of US Acres.
I remember Lanolin from US Acres, but that didn’t help me get the clue (or miss the clue, which is what actually happened)

Re: Thursday, January 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, I bailed out of this game when I realized they were serving up Movie Spoilers to my unspoiled children. After switching the channel, I asked my kids if they heard any of it, and they said "No, you were yelling too loud." You are my kind of woman, Kara. I read your post out to Mrs. P and she l...

Re: Tuesday, January 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If you want to simply say that Tim Horton is not the name of the chain, I think that leads to a very slippery slope where you’d expect that they’re going to neg people if they say Krogers or Wal marts, etc. Some of those things can be grinding to the ear but without a doubt there are a lot of them ...

Re: Tuesday, January 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

"Presenter" didn't sound like it narrowed down to any Microsoft program over any other to me. Maybe it's the Mac user in me. Powerpoint has almost become a generic term for the type of presentation one does by using computerized slides. Again, probably one that just flew over my Macintosh-centric m...

The 1/18 episode of Young Sheldon had the family getting a Tandy 1000 SL with Intel 8086, 8 MHz, & 5.25" drive. There was a quick montage of each family member (including Meemaw speaking into the mouse) using the computer in various ways. Missy was playing this (while claiming to be doing her homew...

My friend who's a transplant from New York, home of CARNagee Hall, is annoyed that we Clevelanders call the street that intersects East 9th "carNEGee," since the man's name was Andrew CARNagee. But with a little googling, I discovered Alex/Cleveland's pronunciation is the Scottish version and how t...

Also don't know what "clotheslining" is. You seen the gif alietr sometimes posts called “asshole penguin”? If the titular penguin stuck out its wing a few seconds earlier, knocking down the other from the front instead of behind, they would have “clotheslined” the victim. (Think running around the ...

Glad I’m now working in the financial services industry, I’ve had to learn a lot about financial gobbledygook - it’s literally my job to know this stuff and be able to recall it quickly. I know I did a lot better in that category now than I would have even three months ago / when this was taped. (Di...

I would have missed the FJ clue if not for the LL question this past season on Ethiopia. I had thought that Egypt was Africa's second most populous country, but in all the buzz around that question I learned that Ethiopia was actually #2. This was my reasoning, I knew Nigeria was #1, thought Egypt ...

I blanked on Warren's name thanks in no small part to our crude POTUS' insults which dominated my retrieval process. Last semester, I mentioned Tecumseh's curse to our team.

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

I still think "heresy" is an obscure enough word that I can understand it being a TS at $200 in any context. Let's see how it polls. I thinking it might be a good idea for you to run your own poll of clues you wonder about, as you seem to have a disproportionate number of them (and Mark has limited...

Interestingly, J! altered the $800 HBO, GO! clue in today's Daytime J! repeat of this episode so instead of having Matthew Weiner read it (and have the longer text that appears in the Archive), Alex reads the clue and it reads: Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner got one of his first big breaks when Davi...

I knew the movie because we watched in high school, but not the musical. Most good movie musicals were stage musicals first. You got to watch Evita in school? The best I got was "Powers of Ten". (You can check that one out on YouTube.) My wife likes movies, and musicals, but she hated Evita (and I'...

This logic also follows from the idea that a new president becomes official at noon on Jan 20th, regardless of the actual timing of the oath of office. This was discussed a good deal when President Obama's first oath was somewhat mangled by the justice giving it. Obama was president in any case, al...

If Jeopardy! considered other viewpoints these and other points could be different. While it definitely seems that Jeopardy! does i...
