I wonder if they would have taken "Jackie O"?

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I just went to the LL page to remind myself of the questions and there’s a notice in a red box that I may have submitted my answers too late although it lists my submission time (correctly!) as 10:28pm EST. I hope it’s just a glitch as I got either all 6 correct or 5/6 if baking soda isn’t similar ...

Sotomayor/Souter here, which is at least alliterative.

I need to add "Who replaced which Supreme Court justice" to my anki deck.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

See, that's just it .. I guess I'm more used to J! questions; they've certainly done episode titles as a category before and usually there's at least something. This just felt way too thin in terms of leading hints. Given minimal effort, I'm sure I could name off six to ten shows where "Italian sou...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Every once in a while I'll get the energy up to add 2 or 3 games from the J-Archive to my Anki flashcards, usually when there's a big tournament (5 and a half games from this current ToC) or when the game id counter turns over to an even hundred. I've got all these little clusters of 3 or 4 games ra...

I should have focused harder on brainstorming newspaper names. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune was right there. (Although even if I'd come up with the word, I still might not have guessed it.)

Can we get "I guessed Encore for Monday's FJ" on the weekly poll? Thanks. Shoulda thought just a little bit longer.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

"Mayim" is a fun search at the J-Archive. From it I learned 1. It means "water" in Hebrew, and is also the name of an Israeli dance. 2. Mayim Bialik's 2 most famous roles were named Blossom and Bloom (C.C. Bloom, from Beaches), and her 3rd most famous, Amy Fowler on Big Bang Theory, is an anagram of...

My brain served up "Guantanamo Bay" as a rhyme, which then nudged me to the fact I wasn't thinking far enough south. Got it in time.

This was a really good FJ.

Thanks, trainman!
I don't know, man. Facts instead of wild speculation? Sets a pretty high bar for future posting, don't you think?

Re: Tuesday, May 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got Faulkner on a stone cold guess. "County" is the TOM, though it isn't obvious. It didn't help that I played the Final clue from the Board post and misread "county" as "country". If I had read the clue right (or had the benefit of Buzzy reading it to me), it would have been a slam dunk. As it w...

It looks like the book in the clue is Intruder in the Dust, which isn't on my flashcards, even though just about everything else by Faulkner is.

Buzzy had a shot to try out his accents with the Bogey clue, but he passed. Shame.
That's the first time in the guest host era that I've explicitly wished for Alex's clue delivery.
Have any of the guest hosts dropped a "No harm, no foul" yet?
