Re: Wednesday, July 27, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

Re: FJ. I remember chuckling during one clue mentioning "Charles V" and a trial and someone (I believe it was Ryan) falsely ringing in with "Henry VIII", perhaps thinking that Charles V was an English king - giving me amusement because I thought it was common knowledge there were only two King Char...

Charles Stuart can refer to Charles I or II.

I'm surprised two contestants missed this.

Re: One other thread to revive: Intellectual pet peeves

My newest pet peeve is the use of the phrase "right now". I thought it was just from reality television- I used to think it was something they did to keep descriptions in the present- but I realized it is in common use now. The example that I am hearing the most and that drives me the craziest is t...

Re: Tuesday, July 26, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS

My first thought on FJ was "transubstantiation," but I was pretty sure that a) Jeopardy wouldn't open a can of worms with the Catholic church by referring to the bread and wine there as merely symbols of Jesus; and that b) it's not included among the seven miracles in John (I can't remember if the ...

So basically we want everyone to find it except TRD and TPH. I wonder if there is a SEO for that?

Re: POLL - Should we Have More Than One Forum?

I hate to keep referring to the Millionaire Bored but since it uses the same software and is designed for the same purpose as this one (keeping discussion about a beloved game show alive), I would suggest that one forum be set aside for game transcripts. The moderator(s) of that forum could copy th...

He is saying, "Hi, Inland Northwest." That's a name locals use for eastern Washington and northern Idaho. We very much consider ourselves part of the entire Northwest, no matter what outsiders think. For the record, I live in Moscow and registered just to reply to this. :) I've heard Inland Empire ...

Let's not forget David Madden's strategy of finding DD's just to keep them away from the other contestants (and usually betting low on them). Worked fairly well for him.

Re: Thursday, July 14, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILER

I figured out what they wanted in hybrids from the first clue, altho I might not have if another clue had been revealed first. I think a kid could have figured it out too.
