Re: Techniques for Memorizing and Reinforcing Trivial Facts

One of my favorites for the capital of Tonga. Tonga > Tanga, the revealing Brazilian bikini bottom that shows off the butt > synonym of butt is buns > loaf > Nuku'alofa I might not be well in the head, but can remember stuff! :D My technique is not nearly as colourful - I just remember that you mig...

Re: Reretaken Down

I hate that I can no longer program my own computer, and haven't been able to for at least 25 years. Maybe one of you can help me. I want to write a simple program on my Windows 7 PC using tools that the PC already has or that I can download for free. The program would do the following: 1. Request ...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

I interpret the "Trebek" exclusion as just a simple way of saying you aren't eligible for regular J! if you have been on Teen Tournament, College Tournament, Teachers Tournament, etc.... just as a way of making it clear. Perhaps. But they could just say "on any version of Jeopardy! ," which they do...

Re: Friday, November 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I could be wrong, but I think this is the first time that both a Teachers Tournament winner and a College Champion have each won their QF games in the same ToC (with a footnote that Lilly Chin and Jason Sterlacci both advanced from the same QF game in 2017). Does one of the resident statisticians/fa...

No the. Just Carpenters.
Originally, I was going to refute your claim, but... I stand corrected...
It's true. My entry was simply 'Carpenters' as well.

MOVIE MATH It's the sum of all the numbers that appear in the titles of 21st-century Best Picture winners. What is 2,000,012? (Million Dollar Baby + Slumdog Millionaire + 12 Years A Slave) I went with 1,000,012. I don't think "millionaire" is a number. This is a good clue but I think it's asking fo...

Re: TD 431 - Abbreviated Version (Final results)

Thanks clt013, that was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I seem to be developing a bad habit of forgetting my drops.

Also, I hate to be a stickler, but it shouldn't affect the podium so... I shied away from Penélope Cruz because I wasn't 100% on whether she had that accent in her name (she does).
