Re: Thursday, March 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wrote down "Topeka" before the music started. Realized at the end of the first verse that KA is not Kansas's postal abbrev., it's KS. Couldn't pull AlbaNY in time.

And, y'know, the whole problem of Kansas being WEST of the Mississippi.

Re: Play along for pancreatic cancer research

For those wishing to donate in Canada, we've named the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and Pancreatic Cancer Canada as places where you can donate. I'm also working to find out from the show if they, or if Alex himself, has a preferred charity for donations.

Re: Thursday, February 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As usual, I see no way to shortcut 360/8 to figure out how big an octant is. Can't drop the 0 because 36/8 doesn't come out even. 360/2=180 180/2=360/4=90 90/2=180/4=360/8=45 Took me a second in game time, but I said it the same time as Roger. A barn-burner followed by a rare FJ! triple stumper. To...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Alex Jacob and his FJ! clue percentage at 18% is to be taken with a grain of salt as game circumstances too often dictated no need for him to play it legit. In 11 appearances, Alex had a lock game eight times. Despite this, he wrote a legit response seven times and was right twice. This brings his ...

Looks like it's just on your end. Also running Chrome on Win10 and the new icons have all seemed to update fine. Maybe clear your cache?

Re: Where to start w/ trivia & life?

Buzzy Cohen got me on to this podcast: BBC Radio 4's In Our Time, which features host Melvyn Bragg and guests discussing classical literature, art, history -- it's a must listen for any J! hopefuls.

Is it Bizarro Day? I finally got a FJ! correct!

Went 3/5 on Lawrence's ELECTION '68 category. Missed the DD by suggesting Goldwater, who ran in '64 instead. Whoops!

Re: Friday, September 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was leaning towards Sophie's Choice before Trebek went into the impression. I don't know that I would have switched to The Godfather in time without it.

Trebek's reading reminded me of another bad Godfather impression from a game show:
