Re: Wednesday, January 29, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It was just $5, but not even taking a guess on the DD?

I don't know what La Paz is the capital of, but that wasn't the question. I was pretty sure what country the other one belonged to, but I did not know the city.

EndlessEntropy wrote:instaget FJ, pretty obvious from the titles if you know even a bit about Silent spring.

I didn't know that about Rachel Carson though, those are interesting connections.

I know zero about Silent Spring or Rachel Carson. So no chance on FJ.

Re: Monday, January 20, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Doesn't the press frequently mention that the President is going to Camp David for the weekend anymore? (They sure did in the '70s and possibly the '80s.) I just don't understand this TS. I don't know where Camp David is. In the press they just say Camp David. They don't say "...Camp David, which i...

FJ came down to just picking a play at random.


I went 5/5 in sports siblings.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), January 9, 2014

I did the best on this test. I felt that the pop culture questions were easiest on this one. I felt it most with the John Grisham or Wed. with Stephen King, compared to whoever Orson Scott Card is.

The questions felt easy enough. I still only got 29. I guess at this point I guess I'm just taking this online test for fun, my score are just awful.

FJ I was stuck on Yentle (sp) with Streisand. I was pretty sure on Some Like It Hot, but no idea about the Channing involvement in that. There is no Channing involvement in that. The role that Monroe took that Channing originated is Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. My bad. Even if Gentlemen...

I think if a Daily Double is in one of the first two rows, a large wager seems to make sense. The questions seem to be easier, unless it's in a category that one doesn't like.


No chance in FJ. I have never heard of TED.

No chance at FJ. I have no idea why anyone would know college mascots,unless they attended that school or it's rival. It is good to know for Jeopardy of course. I think the same goes for where athletes attended college. I love sports, but not college sports.

I also thought it said fawn instead of fauna, until reading these posts. I've seen the Disney movies, read TLTW&TW and seen its animated version. That did not help me one bit in getting FJ.

Golf wrote:Never seen the movie, crime drama + nominee + 1994, sounds like Pulp Fiction to me. I'd say if one is 90+% sure of the answer without seeing the movie it's not that difficult a clue.

I've never seen the movie. I tried to come up with what was out in 1994, but nothing.

I thought Hawkings would have made an appearance at the regular Olympics, but he didn't. I did hear that he was at the Paralympics, so easy answer for me. Not if you added ...

The wording of that question messed with my head. By the time I figured out it meant six confederate states I had three seconds left and blurted out Tennessee. Wouldn't have crossed out Kentucky (I know, not Confederate) in time. Glad Jim won for ToC purposes but the wagering was bizarre. Seemed li...

I literally precalled every single spin off in television history, except the FJ one. I just could not come up with it when faced with the question. I was stuck on trying to think of one that I missed that fit the clue.

Re: Friday, April 12, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It was "Capital of Upper Canada," so the guesses weren't as ridiculous as you're making them out to be. (OK, maybe Montreal was a little silly for a city formerly called York.) Upper Canada = Ontario. I thought even those that know basically nothing about Canada would know that much. I am obviously...
