Re: Monday, May 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Charleston just never crossed my mind on FJ. I doubt many people knew this one cold, I knew it cold and so did my mother, having read the book. In fact, related to MarkBarrett's post, it's a very easy FJ if you've read the book and quite a difficult one if you haven't. I wouldn't say that - I got C...

$50,000 prize pool tonight. I'm sure they're going to make us suffer through plenty of "The Voice"-related nonsense but 50k is 50k.
It's at 11:30 Eastern time, by the way.

President Trump pulls US out of the nuclear deal with Iran, citing continuing efforts on Iran's part to develop such weapons and support for terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah and the continuing conflicts in Iraq, Syria and Yemen.

I am a baby boomer but didn't really get the flow of the "lake" category and never been a fanboy of musicians. I've never related to eponymous groups such as Emerson, Lake and Palmer; Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young; (that's all I have). Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds. I think that's about all I ca...

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Put me down for finding the clue wording a bit confusing, particularly if one has only 30 seconds to ponder it. Wonder what would have happened if someone would have put down "Life, Truth & Road", since the clue says these 3 words in English and "Via" does translate to road. Yes, but the clue inclu...

Re: Friday, March 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

gave "condensed" rather than "abridged" for DD1, and I can't see anything from my googling that would exclude that response. Judges? "Abridged" is almost always the adjective used here, and I've never seen "condensed" for one of these editions...but I'm sure there are some examples of the latter so...

Has it been established whether the Ephesian temple answer could legitimately be either "Diana" or "Artemis" (seeing as how they're considered two names for the same goddess)?
I'd count it if only because the book of Acts references the temple and "Diana of the Ephesians" (Acts 19:28).

I noticed that the Final Jeopardy answer for March 1 was "What are the Channel Islands"? That was Question #30 on the online test, so regular Jeopardy watchers got a bonus if they were watching that day.
That's how I got the answer.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), March 6, 2018

39/50 for me, one of my lowest scores. It was very tough - "Alice Walker" for "Toni Morrison", "Taylor" for "Tyler", "axons" for "neurons", "A frame" for "chalet", didn't know the blind tenor or the author, nor the Prince lyrics. I didn't see the word "shoe" in the question about Zappos until it was...

I got FJ! but I would quibble with the translator - "gyne" is Greek for "woman", not "birth".

So, is there irony in the fact that Florence's failure to exercise her right to remain silent cost her the ability to participate in FJ!? (Or just Alanis Morissette irony?)

It's apparently a 9,500 - square foot house on about a third of an acre (not much room for a yard) built in 1892. It's supposedly single-family and has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
