Re: Friday, March 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The director of the 2017 film Thor: Ragnarok , Taika Waititi, is half Maori, not Tahitian. New Zealand is one-third the width of the Pacific away from Tahiti (seven and a half hours by air), but since it's still probably the closest major land mass, and Maori and Tahitians had common Polynesian anc...

Hissing and associated with the Civil War? That sounds like a copperhead to me. See, and I was *JUST* about to post now I know how TPH feels, because I have NEVER heard this bit of information ever. And it ruined my chance at a first :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: FJ week, too! :...

The FJ! clue had 3/3 written all over it unless someone botched the exact name of the sandwich. My count is 0 for ever eating it while my mom has enjoyed many a one over the years.
+1. Filet O' Fish is generally known as a "Mom" purchase in my experience.

Once again, this supports my theory that they don't write Pop Music FJs for people with too much knowledge of Pop Music. In the past, I've had issues with FJs about the Beatles and Bruce Springsteen, saying that it left too much open for coin flips. Now in this case, if you knew that Merle Haggard w...

It was absolutely INFURIATING me that they were letting Jon get away with the lack of "What is" as long as they did. Did they ever give someone that much leniency before?

Also, as much as I think MacKenzie has been kicking ass, I think it was less about her closing the gap and more about Amal guessing her way out of the lead. "Moriarity"? :shock: Ya never know how your brain fires off, huh.

J! Archive says this is the first time the word "Tushie" used on Jeopardy! (Though I can find "tush" several times, including two references to George Bush and two for Dennis Franz :shock: )

Judges ... "Memoriam" for "Eulogize"? Probably not, huh.
Doubtful, they're looking for a verb.
Yeah, I realized that when I went back to the video. Oh well. :p

Re: Tuesday, January 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

They accepted 'page', but they were going for 'fax'!? Um, OK. I assume Necco made hearts with both words, but boy that was jarring. I think it is less that they are acceptable synonyms and more that both technologies fit the description and time frame for the clue. I actually said "Page" myself. ED...

About two questions later, I yelled it at my comptuer. I don't think TPTB will accept the answer.
That's what I did for E.L. James. I was like "E.L .. E.L .. dammit what is her last name!" And then got even angrier with myself when I remembered how simple it is.

OK, based on the initial list of answers put on this thread, I wanna say I'm at 40. Personal best, I'll take it!

EDIT: I see that Frozen was listed, but yeah, that answer was definitely Wicked, which I got correct. +1 for me, yay!

This one felt easy to me. I feel like I haven't been studying and I choked on a couple and I still think I passed. Felt like very little with movies and TV which are my weakest subjects.
I was happy that the TV one was about The Masked Singer, one of the few shows I have been watching lately.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 28, 2020

I feel pretty good about that one! They gave a few pop culture/non traditional topic questions that fell in my general knowledge base. I can only think of 2 or 3 that I know I screwed up, though I'm sure it'll be higher when the whole thing is parsed.

Good luck everyone!

Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I felt uncomfortable watching Priscilla in DJ. Sometimes you never know how someone is going to handle being under the lights, and I have the utmost sympathy for her ... but I felt like the Simpsons' "Stop, he's already dead!" meme. I wanted them to stop the match and try to calm her down.
