Re: Monday, June 4, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't always True Daily Double, but when I do, I do it when I'm a hair off the lead in a category for which I've yet to see a clue.

Re: Tuesday, May 22, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was a pretty easy but well-written board. My precall on FJ was Sputnik and my number 2 precall was Joseph McCarthy. I couldn't remember if McCarthy was from Minnesota or Wisconsin and (incorrectly) went with Minnesota, then realized with about 3 seconds left that the clue was probably referrin...

The Archivists are volunteers who take time out of their busy schedules to enter the games into The Archive.

Patience is a virtue.

Yep. For example, it airs at 3:30 p.m. in Chicago.

You mean to tell me this episode has aired within the last few years and I'm still not able to pull it up in 720p online? I'm disappoint, son.

Did you add that note to number four in the original post regarding the word "bootstrapped" after I submitted my answers, or am I really that lazy of a reader?

Re: Final Jeopardy wagering theory

Vanya, I'm just going to give my opinion quickly that you're wrong and creedofhubris is right. You can still use a mixed strategy in 1 game, you flip a coin or a mental coin, and theoretically you can't be exploited since your opponent can't predict what you're going to do. He said specifically, th...

Dynamite fact-checking there, guys. Maybe they borrowed Limbaugh's? Ah nah he di'in. I'm positive Jeopardy! won't end when Trebek retires, a show like that ending is based on ratings, not the host. Look at how inexorably tied to The Price is Right Bob Barker was, and it's chugging along nicely post...

Re: Monday, April 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just figured "il" translated to "the." So I felt The Deer Hunter was the only likely film it could be. No other film with a "the" in the title seemed significant enough to be a response for FJ. And, there was nothing that appeared to represent the number 2, so The Godfather wasn't an option to me.
