There might be other trivia questions that ask for words made from Roman numerals which allow invalid numeral answers but not when you’re converting integers into different systems.
The clue from a year ago about Empress Dowager CIXI, for example.

Re: PRESIDENTIAL BIRTHPLACES 3/2/21 J! Round

Brookline was already J-Canon, with a half-dozen or so hits in the Archive as the President's birthplace. There was also one hit each for it as the birthplace of RFK and of Mike Dukakis.

Missed Brookline, but had to think real hard to pull Kinderhook. That particular piece of trivia had been shoved way to the back of my brain.

Anyone else go with Trump for the teflon question yesterday? I didn't think that's what the question was going for but it almost fits so I went with it.

This one hinges on how many "optimistic 80s anthems" you can bring to mind in 30 seconds. I got there pretty quick, but under the lights it could be a-whole-nother story.

"I'm an Apteryx, a wingless bird with hairy feathers."

Not a valid answer for IT'LL ALL END IN "X" for $2000, though, unfortunately for me.

And, not to be seen as evading the issue, I thought "devanagari" might be a type of yoga and said "bikram".

I don't hear it, but I'll take your all's word for it. I feel like the way he pronounces the syllables of "Easter Island" are the way you'd do it if you had said "What is" ahead of it, and also on the (very grainy) video it kind of looks like he starts talking as soon as his lights come on. I'm expe...

Mr. Potato Head is dropping the title from its name, and will be known as simply "Potato Head" starting in the fall. Not quite true. They're changing the overall branding of the product line to Potato Head, but Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head will still be around. https://twitter.com/Hasbro/st...

Re: Wednesday, February 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS) by Archivists

This is definitely a fact I learned from an ancient season 2 or 3 game, and I thought it was an FJ back then too, although it's not in the Archive or the resource.

Semi-related, the FJ resource is indexed on Google now. I don't know if that was always the case.

Re: as odd as this may seem

Here’s something I have never noticed before. The last category in the J round in S1E1 was “Number, Please” and it went unused. The very next episode the category in that spot was “By the Numbers”. I wonder if they reused the category they had planned for the first episode in the second. I can't im...
