Huh. In your 1D history, it now shows if you broke into the top 50%, not just 5, 10 and 20
(if you get a label for being higher than 5%, I wouldn't, personally, know )
Champion is the only higher label.
If you exclude Runner-up.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I just checked out the NAQT "You Gotta Know" for June 2021. It's usually loaded the first day of the month, but I'm dead certain I checked and it wasn't there at the beginning of the month. The topic? "Countries once known by different names". What's the first thing on the list? "Bangladesh adopted ...

Was there a typo in Jay’s FJ response?
Nope, just a missing strikethrough tag.

Gaze upon the wonder that is the punctuation near the end of this clue: https://i.imgur.com/09gaye3.png Also of note, the contestant was prompted when giving just the actress's last name. Is there another actress or actor with that name she might be confused for? I suppose it's probably for the "te...

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.
