Re: Thursday, April 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If you can remember that Newton's most famous equation was Force = mass times acceleration, then it's a multiple choice of three. I chose mass because I am a science idiot. Not to make you feel worse, but... Modern formulations of Newton’s 2 most famous equations both begin with this quantity that’...

2 similar pop culture names to watch out for. Musical guest Phoebe Bridgers smashed her guitar at the end of her performance of "I know the End" on Saturday Night Live on February 6.

Re: Was there a precedent for "questioning" "answers"?

CBS Television Quiz (catchy name) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/CBS_Television_Quiz Also the Answer Man bit, popularized by Steve Allen, is often cited as an inspiration. I've seen sources claiming that J! was originally intended as a comedy game, but I have my doubts. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...

Lizzie Borden took an ax
But didn't pay, not even tax.
And when security dared to mention,
She whacked the guy from loss prevention!

Not all for this game, but about 20 correction suggestions from one person in less than 30 minutes. :roll: Somebody really wants Cavalleria Rusticana to be spelled with a lowercase "r". There are plenty of citations for the capital R though. In fact, just about every poster and album cover on Googl...

Re: Monday, April 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

There’s not much else for folks to go by other than “name considerate person on TV (and btw this person was on PBS, and is no longer alive.)” I agree with the first part, but there's nothing specifically in the clue about PBS or that he's no longer alive. I keyed on "help" which matches Mr. Rogers'...

...and the 1995 Teen Tournament is complete. https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6988 This appears to be a full-credits show. It's also the sole appearance of the third, previously missing Shen sibling, Gwen Shen. I wonder if she keeps up with the piano these days. Boy, I'd like to see t...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

On Facebook I received a message that on Stu Shostak's show a mention was made that the host or guest heard from a Sony insider said that Ken Jennings was going to host the ToC to air in June or July. Fact or fiction, time will tell. Fourth hand information can be on the mark or it can wild rumor s...

You know, I was in such a hurry to post my hilarious May/Mayim joke that I never even made that connection. Good looking out.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Moving on to the next India tape, we have Wednesday, December 11, 1991, Eric Goldner vs. Gail Bullion vs. Glenn Gillis. A few small corrections/comments: I assume GRIMM'S FAIRY TALES $400 isn't supposed to have that period at the end. Was dendrochronology hyphenated, or split between two lines with...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I spent much of the second half of the season stuck behind LangenT for the top defense in A Keystone. But on the very last day he dropped a 9(5) and dropped to second place, and I finish at the top of the DE board with a .817 . It's not the best in all of Keystone, though. That honor goes to Schulma...

The LL website is currently paused while final LL88 results are being tabulated and published. Those results will be available at 2:30am PT.

Thank you for your patience.
I am not a fan of this new development. At all.
