Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Swear I posted this, but after seeing MarkBarrett's anthem commentary and some searching, apparently neither I, nor anyone else, tackled it. https://globalnews.ca/news/4011970/o-canada-lyrics-gender-neutral/ The new, gender-neutral lyrics to "O Canada" are official. ...

Re: Friday, February 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I found a blog post Vinay made in October 2012: http://vinaykadiyala.blogspot.com/2012/10/autobiography.html That included this interesting passage: In addition to my passion for medicine, I have many other interests and hobbies. I am a huge trivia buff. This November will mark the third time that ...

Re: Thursday, February 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Mainly I couldn't resist it, but in the SJ round I like the "get 'em out of the way" approach. Better to leave SJ clues unseen if it means a better chance of getting through the DJ board, amiright? That’s not a bad way of thinking actually! Man there is so much luck in this game... Yeah I’m told so...

Re: Tuesday, October 3, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Yeah, yeah, I know. I'm four months late to the party on this one. Did anyone see a way to eliminate F.W. de Klerk on this FJ!? He was president when apartheid was dismantled, and the quote referenced in the clue seems like a statement that would be much more impactful coming from a white politicia...

Re: Thursday, February 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm guessing Rob was saying hello to Carol Burnett's grandmother? :lol: (Surprised Alex didn't know the reference) (I had the idea it'd be a cute thing to do in player intros, but if I did it now, it'd just seem like I was copying Rob.) The players got the Phantom category out of the way first and R...

Frank gave Exhibit A in why you should never guess on Jeopardy! I try to take that rule to heart playing at home ("you either know it or you clam") and I'll say it's really improved my Coryats more than anything I've done since I started tracking them. (I'm almost certain, though, that when I tape I...

Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Perhaps it’s just me but I didn’t really see the Jay Leno category as being about cars. I use the j-scorer site to track my Coryat and part of the site lets you enter the topic of the category so you can track your performance in various topics like in LL. I didn’t code that as “cars” though as I fe...

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

So, my husband went to the J! site to check on his info, etc., and he did not find our major metropolitan area listed among the audition cities. Bummer, since I know they've been here multiple times in the last year. Looks like it'll be a day's drive if he's lucky enough to get an audition. Where d...

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

You don't get to complain that you don't know stuff that's on Jeopardy! while simultaneously complain that it's useless information. A lot of stuff on Jeopardy is useless in my day to day life. But I'm here because I enjoy trivia games. Why are you here? Because I want to learn something actually u...

For the "First Name Verbs" clue "To make your way through not-so-deep water", I had "Ford" instead of "Wade". Thoughts?
There many people with the first name Ford (besides F. M. Ford)? True it doesn’t say it has to be a *common* name (and that opens a big can of worms), but I’d neg it.

How many times over that impressive list did you bother to guess something - anything - just to have a response?

Any channel. Any. Pick one. Channel 54? :D (That reminds me of when we travel with the kids and they want to watch their beloved Cartoon Network at the hotel.

Welcome Sean! I may also add some retroactive good luck, however if that “94” in your username is a reference to your birth year, I’ll have to throw in a “get off my lawn” as well for making me feel old. (I graduated from university in that year for Pete’s sake!)
