Re: Tuesday, October 29, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wondering if anyone else caught this... In the "UGA" category, last question regarding the fictitious force, Marge answered what sounded like "centrifical", which of course isn't a real word. The real words are centripetal and centrifugal. Given the category with UGA in quotes, the latter is the on...

Re: Tuesday, October 29, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Sean is a good player, but his head bobbing got on my nerves. I know Alex isn't the hippest dude in the world, but not knowing what a barrista is? How about [head bobbing + cheesy radio voice]? ETA: When I appear on national TV I could be just as quirky, but the snappiness of his questions and call...

Re: Tuesday, October 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Hey do you JeopVets think Alex would have accepted the answer "Arrows and olive branches" on the dollar (which struck me as pretty easy) where the right answer was "Arrows and *an* olive branch?" Given: it was a DD.

Don't be surprised if the returning champ is down for the count soon, since Bill Tolany = NOTABLY ILL!!!

Re: Friday, October 18, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Anybody else have a problem with the clue with the response of "vig"? I knew what they were going for, but it said that it's what you pay to your bookie when you lose a bet. A losing bet does technically contribute to the vig because the bettor has to bet at worse than true odds, but the winner is ...

Re: Friday, October 18, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Gah. Introduced in a song. Around a long time. This is probably blatantly obvious, but I can't think of anything. Long-lived car had me thinking Corvette, but I couldn't think of any Corvette songs. I couldn't think of anything even remotely close to right, so I just spent the entire 30 seconds doo...

Category: Novel Haiku The finches fly free A Sweet Home Alabama Jem of a novel Whew, glad they caught that he said "What is 'To Kill a (K)nockingbird'?" His lips clearly didn't touch (which is what I'm sure the judges reviewed). I would have expected Alex to get it the first time, but I'll bet some ...

For a split-second I wondered why it wasn't an insta-get but then I figured he must have been around 10 when it happened (Not That There's Anything Wrong With That)

Re: Monday, October 14, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I said Kazahkstan for FJ! and was rather surprised with the ruling of Greg's answer as incorrect, more surprised than I was when I found out I was right. If his answer was verbal he would've been correct and I feel the ruling was a tad harsh as Kazakstan is rather difficult to properly spell. Perso...

Re: Thursday, October 10, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

One subject not mentioned so far in this thread is the clue in DD about Random house designating as "semi-vowels" the letters Y and W. This addresses the issue that came up a long time ago from a clue about a POTUS whose name contained more vowels than consonants. Apparently they were looking for O...
