Mom got Hermitage out before I did, but I'm counting it anyway (gotta love J! during the holidays!). Friday was an instaget, so I would have taken the time to write the whole thing out.

I saw the show last New Year's Eve so it's been on my mind. It is brilliant, no matter what your view on religion.

Re: Monday, December 18, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I see it on Learned League sometimes when an opponent has ART as the worst category. It’s one of those areas like opera that can be a nightmare for some people. Ben’s wager of zero has me wondering if ART was the last thing he wanted to see? The response of Guernica demonstrates he at least knows a...

Used to live in Belize, so super instaget. Thought at least one or two would make the connection.
Always nice to see good wagering.

Re: STATES BY COLORFUL LOCALES - 10/9 J! Round category [SPOILERS]

White Settlement is in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex (barely). I wouldn't expect anyone outside DFW to have heard of it, unless they ran across the name at some point and were intrigued by it.

ETA: like TPH, I NHO the top-box response of Mannequin Challenge. MarkBarrrett, could you poll it? And then follow up with asking who has participated in the challenge? Wasn't my idea, the younger coworkers corralled everyone into it. It was a harmless way to kill a few minutes on a Friday afternoon.

My solve percentage for the week on the FJ! clues went up five points today and my instinct is to credit Franklin W. Dixon as the source for first putting the organization on my radar. I have Carmen Sandiego (as real as Mr. Dixon!) to thank. Ditto. Which is why I was worried it either wasn't real, ...

Re: Eclipse Poll

Which came about after some lady posted that she wished the museum would reschedule the eclipse because it occurs on the first day of school in the Dallas area. I believe she was serious because she later removed her post. In the Dallas-area district I work in, it's the week before school starts. W...

I also said disparity instead of inequality. My psychology PhD finally got me a DD with prosopagnosia. I've been in public education for almost 20 years, first as a teacher and now as a school psychologist. I had no clue on FJ! My mother, who was in public education for almost 30 years, also had no ...

KTXA ran a Teachers Tournament episode from last season for some reason. Didn't get to see the new ep here.
They swapped the two episodes, I assume by mistake. This episode was on at 5:30. I turned the station on during FJ! and was pretty frustrated.

What a great game, hard fought by everyone until the end. I almost thought she had it until I saw which way Sam's coin flip landed. Cindy goes out a superchamp.

Alex's words were simple but touching. I'm so glad CIndy was able to live her dream.

Re: Cindy Stowell

One thing that has been gnawing at me a little with Cindy's run is that it makes me wish Jeopardy had her on 1-2 years earlier. Sure; however, those of us at the OKC auditions took the test in January. No way to teleport her to an earlier audition. Anyone know if she'd auditioned, or taken the test...

Houston is bigger than Dallas? 2.3 M for Houston to 1.3M for Dallas. If you're talking city-proper, then San Antonio (1.5 M) is larger as well. San Antonio has no metro area- you basically go from the city to the country and some small towns (with a few exceptions, one of them being the town my par...
