Re: Tuesday, July 21, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The previous FJ! where the response was also T.E. Lawrence was in this game, which aired January 12th this year. Depending on when they taped this game, that seems very odd to me that they put them so close together.

Paging Jennifer: When were your games taped?

Re: The value of quiz bowl experience

As a somewhat-active-but-not-really-that-great quiz bowl player when I was in high school, I think that (at least for me) the biggest thing quiz bowl did for my Jeopardy! game was to increase my knowledge of Pavlovian responses. Quiz bowl is a lot of waiting around for a big TOM and then buzzing in,...

The name of the category required responses to contain "roid", not just "oid".
Oh yeah. That'll do it.

Re: For the LLamas Among Us

Looking for a referral here as well. I am fairly new to the board but I post regularly. I also have been following along with the last 2 LL seasons looking at the questions each day, so you can trust me to not forfeit!

Instaget FJ here as I am huge fan of the book. To everyone saying they didn't realize the monster spoke I highly encourage you to read it. It's much different than any movies made about it.

Couldn't think of a noble gas longer than helium so I went with that. I wasn't confident that because I thought maybe xenon would have more points than that and sure enough, it does -- 11 for helium and 12 for xenon. Rats, I had hoped I had precalled the clue and the answer. I came up with this duri...

Re: Match Game X: Parric Victory (closes Wednesday)

I answered Mother Earth, but upon seeing the answer Mother Nature I realized that was the actual concept I was thinking of and I'm honestly not sure if I've ever heard the term Mother Earth (I certainly haven't heard it with the same frequency as Mother Nature). Interesting.

Re: Wednesday, July 8, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Today's show was an instance where it's very possible to guess the correct FJ response before the break, simply from knowing the FJ category. Pretty much a "what else could it be"? I mean, besides writing the constitution, what else is T-Jeffs known for? Madison is the father of the Constitution, J...

Can I get a ruling on "Blacklist" vs. "Blackball" ?
I also said blacklist, and I don't see a real difference between the terms, at least not one that would make a difference in the context of the clue.

Getting song titles was hard enough for me. Only diehard fans could recognize these.

On a non-wagering related note, anybody have any idea why FJ! said "CNN declared the Zambian president..." or something like that instead of just "In 2014 the Zambian president became..."?

Thought Alex was a bit rude for getting Kay to respond to Brennan's Daily Double. But hey, Alex is rude sometimes and we all know that. I didn't think it was rude at all.
