I blame the obesity epidemic. As I recall, the bridge was never in any danger, at least not according to th...

Is anyone else out there sort of annoyed by so much Canadian geography? It is really that useful knowledge? Sure having these quirks makes studying for the game easier . In contrast there is very little Mexican or Caribbean geography? I really liked the question actually. The writers did a great jo...

Also, wagering (everything) to tie the leader from third place when he had to bet more than 4/5 of his score to cover second place didn't make a whole lot of sense.
2nd place is probably going to wager to stay ahead of him on a miss (which he did), so it makes perfect sense.

All but "precipitate" (NHOI) in Science. Not bad. Wait a minute. What? In either context? I've heard of snow as "precipitation" but not just "precipitate". OK, I guess that isn't something you hear much "So, Fred, do you think it's going to precipitate later today?" :) Once it's on the ground it is...
