But the great thing is: You don't have to wait not to play. The not playing started right away! And it lasted a looooooong time!

Re: LL67 (For the LLamas Among Us)

Yesterday I lost 4(4)-8(4). I am going to start either assigning my defense randomly, or making my typical earnest effort and then swapping the 0s with the 3s and the 1s with the 2s.

How on earth does someone get "Abramovic" and not get "Montana"?

Re: LL67 (For the LLamas Among Us)

That is indeed Doug Lach, and while the upper echelon of that rundle was a tough place to begin an LL career, no discussion of fearsome rookie rundles is complete without mentioning LL 50 R West . You might especially recognize the names in 1st, 3rd, 12th, and 34th (owing to six forfeits). Not to m...

Re: Fun With Idiotest

I actually got that from different means: I thought it was a chain and guessed the correct sign because it would be next in the chain (looping to the first symbol at that point). Alternately, it's the only sign that was already used, and there was no reason to think there was a need to introduce a ...

Re: LL67 (For the LLamas Among Us)

Now that the submission deadline has past I'll say that MD5 kicked my butt. The only one I knew right off the bat was Q5 (the jawbone question). I managed to remember Paula Jones' name, but that was it. Just two correct for me. I was particularly impressed I failed to even get a single "John" corre...

Re: LL67 (For the LLamas Among Us)

I was blessed yesterday -- the response to one clue from my second game of Jeopardy! was "Arrakis", and I will never forget that clue because I had buzzed in and answered before I was even aware that I knew the answer, and to this day still don't believe I pulled it; and the WWTBAM question I used "...

Re: Things you miss about Jeopardy!

I miss the days when the players just questioned answers and nobody felt the need to inject their "personality" into the show by trying to be some kind of comedian. I've seen enough old games on youtube to see a lot of people back then had fun without it coming across as staged. u mad bro? EDIT: Ki...

Re: Should Jeopardy! end its partnership with National Geographic?

I don't care what National Geographic does. I wouldn't call it a "public resource" in any case since it is not controlled by the public, but by a small group of fucked-up white guys with a long history of promoting colonialism and racism. What I protest is Robert KS bringing his bullshit bias into ...

Re: Should Jeopardy! end its partnership with National Geographic?

Is this satire? How would National Geographic get political? Is Koch Industries going to put 40 full-page ads in every issue? Will there be a miniseries on NatGeo on young-earth creationism, or the abiogenic origin of oil? It's not necessarily the stories they will publish but possibly stories they...

Are you answering that based on the three choices I have given, or should those be the outcomes generally speaking?

Re: Reretaken Down

That made me start to think about some of the other cases I have read about or witnessed first hand. Let me give three (not entirely random) and see if anybody can match the case with the end result: A) A man and woman have consensual sex. The woman later dies of something not related to AIDS/HIV, ...
