Re: TD 332: From my Bookshelf: Q1-Q10 results

Correct answers for second bonus question. Even if I had gone for the bonus question I would have sheeped! Impressive job by a couple of people getting 5 or more (guessonguess got 6). Could have guaranteed 7 if I had thought for a second and just guessed UPenn for the last two; terrible execution, ...

Because it's the second most famous and glorious structure to ever be built for a World's Fair, and that particular exposition took place in 1889.

Re: Spoiler and poll about an $800 clue in Tuesday, 2/7/17 game

I think that parking boot should have demanded a "be more specific" at best but, honestly, I just really don't think that's an acceptable correct answer. I recognize that there are quirky colloquialisms that tend to be regional, but this situation to me genuinely feels like people never bothering to...

... wow. I don't think it matters that I didn't see that particular episode, because there's no way I would have ever looked at that image and thought anything but "Robin Williams."

Re: Friday, December 16, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

At what point did this "worst luck" factor in, exactly? Erin had EXCELLENT luck in getting all 3 DDs despite not hunting for them. That's an enormous advantage usually enough for a victory by itself. That she got all 3 DDs wrong is not a failure of "luck" but of knowledge. All 3 DDs were reasonable...

Re: Friday, December 16, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wonder if Alex was told about her condition ahead of time. I read somewhere that she got in touch with somebody on Jeopardy's staff and asked if she could move up her taping day, if she qualified, so somebody must have known. The reason I wonder is that I was surprised during the contestant inter...

Re: Friday, December 16, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Erin was a very solid contestant who, quite unfortunately, had the worst luck with Daily Doubles that I've seen in a long time. I was hopeful that she'd win if Cindy couldn't build upon her three-peat. That being said, I am incredibly impressed with what Cindy is doing and think that it's utterly fa...

Not to be that guy, but I really wouldn't classify "High Life" as a beer brand . I think you either have to go all-in and call the beer brand "Miller High Life" if you're going to use "brand" as a synonym for variety/style/offering, but that would obviously not be the name of an in-flight magazine.....

Re: Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have questions about two clues. In the Jeopardy round, in the Greek category, I said pharmacist instead of pharmacy. In the DJ round, in the 4 Elements category, I said aero instead of air. Judges? I, too, said jalopy. I do not think that "aero" would work as it's the National Air and Space Museu...

Funny that the most arrogant contestant did not, in fact, turn out to be Barrett. Fantastic episode.

Discoverers: How do you get steam out of $400? That seemed very wide open. "English," "engine" and "1712" should lead your mind to the Industrial Revolution. From there, steam is the only logical answer. Or, you know, you could alternatively know who Thomas Newcomen is and the type of engine he dev...

Re: Thursday, February 7, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I've never said that a contestant with a score of $0 at the end of DJ shouldn't be allowed to proceed to Final Jeopardy in tournament play. So, the only part of my argument that you disagree with is tha you can't win with $0? Brian Isn't that sort of the entire thing we're debating? I think that yo...

24 round 1, 23 round 2. Totally would have nailed the $200 Biblical Quotes, though :roll: . I'm very surprised that none of the guesses for Final Jeopardy were "Of Mice and Men." Took me a moment to pick between the two; luckily, I went with the novel that had more to do with the natural elements of...

You're completely entitled to argue that the rules should remain unchanged because they're the rules, but I should inform you that it's not a very substantial argument. Maybe it is too difficult for you to make the jump from, "I believe that this is the reason that they do it this way" to "I believ...

Re: The Experts - New YouTube Game Show

The third episode was definitely my favorite; not only did I manage to miss only one question in Arrested Development, but the chemistry between the three contestants was fantastic. *nod* Good episode. Unlike you, I got zero questions right on AD and only 4 on Nightmare and 3 on Bats. And "White Pe...

Re: Thursday, February 7, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The biggest (maybe only) problem I see with the argument that they are proposing is that zero should be enough to win in only some cases . Either it should be enough to win or it shouldn't. Period. The only uncertainty is what happens if, by what appear to be current Jeopardy standards, there are n...
