Re: J! Scorer - A Coryat calculator and stat tracker

Cheers Steve for this great tool of yours. I personally find it a bit tedious to keep Coryats by hand so I end up just using a regular scorer to play along. Previously I hadn't seen a Coryat scorekeeping tool anywhere so avoided it until then. But this will certainly be useful for when Monday rolls ...

What are the chances we are able to teach the lyrebird English?

They haven't held a teen test in almost 2 years, hopefully this is my shot.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I just wanted to commend you guys on the incredible work you all have done building this fantastic resource up. I use j-archive clues to study for quiz bowl, and it's been a big help. If there's any way I can support the work, monetarily or morally, please don't hesitate to ask.

Re: 2017 Current Events Study Guide

Every time I click back to Billboard.com, it plays a little snippet of Despacito, which until today I had head exactly none of. Interesting story: At the global leadership conference I was at this summer, every night we had a thing called "scholar networking" basically where we all gathered in the ...

Re: Jeopardy! Season 34

I received a tip (from a current and respected board member) to see the S34 promo for J! that aired at the end of Wheel tonight. Whoa! That was a good one and very intriguing. What was hinted at in the promo is in the spoiler. Nothing really given away, but still it's only fair that I put it in the...

Re: Reretaken Down

Why Everyone Is Hating on IBM Watson—Including the People Who Helped Make It Can someone clarify this for me? I believe Obama put the moonshot cancer-curing initiative as an official priority of the United States in some capacity, correct? If so, why doesn't IBM reach out to the administration, or ...

Re: Jeopardy! Season 34

Does anyone know when the new season starts? Have they even started taping yet? Yes. Yes. September 11 should be the start of the new season. Taping for a new season usually begins in July. Under tickets on the home page it shows availability for Sept 18 & 19. That's the TOC taping dates. Cool. Tha...

Taylor Swift album out on November 10th: Reputation
That first song was a cover of "I'm Too Sexy" and a Kanye diss track to boot. Ugh.

Re: Just registered for the online test--now what?

If you have some time, the prior adult tests have been posted on Youtube. You can try playing along to get a sense of the timing (for the most part, since you'd have to try pencil and paper as opposed to typing), as well as a sense of the types of questions. Here are the links to a couple of the Oc...

Re: Monday, February 27, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Coryat was $5600 at the end of J! round. Would never have guessed Mahalia Jackson, but I went on Google Images and looked at a picture of her and realized she must've noticed the slight facial resemblance (there is a tiny bit). DJ!: I guessed Maine instead of Massachusetts, for some stupid reason. W...

Despite their apology, they were hounded by papparazi. I'll show myself out. Well this thread has gone to the dogs. Uh...righ...
