Re: Jeopardy! and your resume

I put it on my resume for my last job search (early 2012). I feel like it was an unqualified plus. I can be a little awkward, and it provided icebreakers for interviews and thus put me more at ease, especially for my big interview with the ED of my current employer. I can't prove it, but I'm pretty ...

And fantasy baseball season is here

The semi-official J-board fantasy baseball league is open as of now. Last year's participants should have received your 2013 invites by the time I send this around. Anyone else interested in playing should email me (my first name at my full name dot net) and I'll send you the password. League caps a...

Re: Need trivia help with 1950s TV show

Thanks for your help. This part is right: Your dad was nicknamed Flash. Flash is a name of a TV show character from the mid 1950s who was weak. This part is not right: Your dad knows the answer, but won't tell you? It's not one of things where all these years he thought it was Flash and it turned ou...

Need trivia help with 1950s TV show

Dad's nickname all through high school was "Flash". After many, many years he finally told me why.

He said it was after a character on a tv show who was such a weakling that he couldn't even lift a book.

A couple of cursory google searches turned up nothing.

Anyone have any ideas?
