Re: Friday, September 30, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

i've already confessed that i'm a huge chris fanboy, so i was cheering for him again "today". but when rob found those DDs and went big, we cheered and shouted. absolutely the right move, and it was a joy to see somebody who really recognized that and made the most of his opportunity. (that, and it ...

Re: Thursday, September 29, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS

chris put up a ridiculously impressive performance. he's also the world's nicest guy, as far as i can tell. i happened to sit next to him on the bus from the hotel that morning and i got to know him better than any of the other contestants in that group. they were all charming, of course, but i was ...

Re: Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Game Recap & Disc(SPOILERS

serge, you were great. i have sympathy for your overthinking boston—but as i say, it's easier if you actually live here and know where those streets are. that's crazy about the FJ video not showing—from where i was sitting in the studio, it came up fine on the big monitor at the right of the stage. ...

Re: Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Game Recap & Disc(SPOILERS

What's the male winning percentage this season? 100%. justin x4, amit x1, matt x2, sergio x1 (so far). two of the remaining four challengers this week are women. speaking of which, i'm relatively new to these things, so i don't know: is it normal that the promotional video this week on jeopardy fro...

Re: Tuesday, September 27, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

suze and joe were very unfortunate to be up against a very good player on an otherworldly roll. we were all rooting for you—all three of you, but when matt built that huge lead i know i wasn't the only one hoping for a fightback. but matt tore through DJ like nobody's business. wow. FWIW, i didn't n...

Re: Sitting in the Audience

even that much would likely be enough to tell us whether sara heard/buddy wright/etc made the field, which is a spoiler of sorts for the next several weeks of season 28, no?

Re: Monday, September 26, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

I was waiting for him to stop and then when he did, beep-beep-beep. I would bet there was the normal few seconds of silence, but it was edited out for time. nope. like suze, i was watching this game from the studio audience as a waiting-to-be-drawn contestant. i was stunned when the beepbeepbeep so...

Re: Boardies on the Show - Season 28

ryan, congrats, welcome, and best of retroactive luck. i also joined after my taping, but in my case it was for the prosaic reason that i didn't know about this board until one of the other contestants told me. (hi, suze!)

Re: Thursday, September 22, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS

Grumble grumble grumble...for the second time in 4 shows this week, my rapidly chicken-scratched calculations during the pre-FJ break were rendered somewhat irrelevant by a late score correction. Why can't Alex just pop in and announce score corrections right when they head to the break after the F...

Re: Pet Intellectual Peeves

this isn't necessarily stupid. the progressive tax rate is not a continuous function of income; it has discrete jumps, which could lead to the situation where an increase in gross income produces a decrease in net income. as a concrete example, suppose you make $50k, then you get a $1000 raise that ...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Hi, everyone. I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this, but I thought I would share a new segment I'm hosting for the public radio station where I work. It's called Any Questions and it launches this evening. It's in the tradition of Will Shortz's Sunday puzzle on Weekend Edition, but it...

it wasn't. since i'm a new member, one of the mods had to approve the post before it showed up, but then it got slotted back in chronologically after the fact.

... I have it on good authority that crossword constructor extraordinaire joon pahk will appear on J! on Monday, October 3rd. I hope this doesn't mean they've hit their quota. ;) "extraordinaire" is hyperbolic, but the rest of your information is correct. thanks to suze for pointing this board out ...
