You have no excuse there - In Pokemon, only flying types can learn the move "Roost."
I also haven't played it in like 10 years.
I ask you, how was I supposed to know that when your avatar is a Pokemon?
Let alone a Pokémon that was introduced less than seven years ago. :roll:

Re: Friday, April 28, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Alan and Alex messed with my head when "big red spot" for the area on Jupiter was accepted. They had me going for a second as I had to decide whether to neg or not my "great red spot." My instincts told me I was fine and I counted it while of course later finding easy confirmation when the game was...

Re: Wednesday, April 5, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

To be honest, how many basketball pros out of 10 would you think they would get this right? I mean, every single NBA player has heard of the Toronto Raptors and I assure you that none of them think the team's mascot is a helicopter or anything other than a dinosaur. I can't say with certainty the n...

Since it's Saint Patrick's day today, they should have done all the DDs (and FJ!) about famous Scotsmen, instead of just 3 of 4.
Getting started with the drinking a week early, I see.

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...

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...

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.....

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...

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...
