Re: 2020 Current Events Study Guide

A multitude of musical "M"s. In January Eminem (Marshall Mathers) released his new album "Music to Be Murdered By". Coming at the end of March, "The Mike and Micky Show", a companion album to the current tour by the surviving members of the Monkees. And in February, Mandy Moore's first album in 11 y...

Archive.org has the lot, save for the zip file, which since the links all work, you don't need:

Sitting here with an open correction suggestion about whether "thirtysomething" should start with a capital "t" or not.

The archive is inconsistant, and I guess I prefer it that way. Close tab.

New Hot 100 #1 is "The Box" by Roddy Ricch. I first heard it a couple of weeks ago, and I considered posting about it then because I could tell it was going to tear things up. Well, it did, but no one'll believe I predicted it. He also has the number 1 album this week, "Please Excuse Me For Being An...

Re: Roger Craig's trivia triumph app

it's also obviously not affiliated with Jeopardy! and uses none of their content. https://mobile.twitter.com/rogcraig/status/1217219815473123328 This is good. I was worried about the C&D. Other apps haven't been so considerate. I shouldn't have worried that Roger is obviously smarter than that. (Di...

Further regarding the Oscars, I believe this marks the first time that a U.S. president (current or former) has been nominated for an Oscar. Reagan's Kings Row was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1943, but not Reagan himself. (A Reagan short film, Beyond the Line of Duty , also ...

I almost whiffed this, focusing too hard at "on it" as the TOM. No Myron, it's obviously "journey", put down the right response and step away from the pen.

I guess the thing is that the negative score has never happened on the second day before and that's why it's never been an issue before. One max(X, 0) function later and we're in business.
And 3 correction suggestions can now be accepted or rejected, depending on how you look at it.

Game 2 FJ.... kicking myself. I've been drilling on Oscar winners, so I have no excuse. Got Cuarón but I couldn't get Iñárritu out of my head fast enough to think further back. :oops: Same. I got hung up on the recent string of Mexican winners, and didn't go further back, even though I knew Inarrit...

I was doing flashcards the other day and I came across a reference to the blackout at Super Bowl XLVII. I thought to myself, I should put that on a flashcard, but didn't.

Brutal game #4 for me, with tons of stuff I should have known. I'll echo someone else about the material being hard without being obscure.

My FJs are YNYN so far.

Does anyone happen to know where January 7th goat can be viewed online? I happened to miss it.
ABC.com has it, if you log in with your cable tv provider. I believe the admin frown on posing links to unauthorized uploads anymore of current games.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

A post on Jeopardy’s Facebook page refers to Friday’s FJ as “Clue #190822”. The archive currently says it has 384,074 clues logged. Obviously the archive has a counter for its clues, but why would the show have a count that is about half what is logged in the archive? The 19 will refer to the year ...
