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...

They were in the news as a couple about a month ago when they recorded a video apologizing to Australia for not properly declaring two dogs they brought in ( news article ). Despite their apology, they were hounded by papparazi. I'll show myself out. Well this thread has gone to the dogs. Uh...righ...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

The game is now closed on my side of America, so I'm assuming it should be safe to post. For the sake of caution, however, I'll use spoilers.

Re: WooWho's 2016 Reading List: Seeking Suggestions!

Tom Daschle and Trent Lott co-wrote a new book which I really like, if you're into that sort of stuff. It's called Crisis Point, and it basically focuses on the time where they shared leadership of the Senate.

I don't think they've ever had anyone from Fox on the show. Megyn Kelly would've been a great selection.
