Re: Tuesday, November 6, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

The game has already been archived. Lot of triple stumpers in this one seems like. Only $18,200 worth--enough for the fourth podium to head into FJ in first place, a hundred bucks ahead of Paul. I only got $15,000 of them; but I got FJ right, so I would have won from the fourth podium with a defect...

Re: Friday, November 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

It wouldn't be the first time there's been a clue about California that the writers deem gettable that I have no clue at all about. (e.g. the FJ from this game .) I think most Californians wouldn't know that either. Heck, I've been to Catalina several times. Didn't help. I don't recall what my resp...

Re: Thursday, November 1, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was just joking about a BMS on Richard Daley. I agree they should have just taken Daley to begin with. I knew they were M and J, but it would have been a guess if I did have to tell you who was which. It bugs me that they don't take away the money of the guy who got it right the second time. Same...

PAGING DR HEIMLICH TO PAUL'S DRESSING ROOM never mind. Shame such a choke job got bailed out by a weird final. Oh, I don't know about that. Paul is the first contestant we've seen who seemed to have a clue what it would take to beat Keith. He landed on the first DD in the DJ round. He had $11,400 t...

Grr, Lord of the Flies was one of my favourite books in high school. You'd think it would have come to me at some point in Final, but no, I had to hang my head in shame upon reveal. :cry: I feel your pain, buddy. I got stuck on Jurassic Park and wasted the rest of my time trying to convince myself ...

He doesn't label shows by date, but by season.week-day (1 being Monday and 5 being Friday). Wheel of Fortune 30.7-1 is yesterday's game (http://dailymotion.com/video/xupek5). And given there's nothing in between it and 30.6-5, I assume Jeopardy 29.7-1 is not being posted. Yes, yes, I figured out hi...

Re: Monday, October 29, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

R38102 has posted last night's Wheel of Fortune, but not J!. There's not a whole lot of history on his page, since he deletes videos after some time, but I can see he posts J! before WoF, and he posted two Wheels in a row last week, with no J! accompanying the second one. So I'm assuming I'll have ...

No excuses, but explanation: P'Zone was the answer to a clue in our practice round. Totally got stuck in my head. Other thoughts, towards the end of Double Jeopardy, I was trying to catch up and got caught guessing. The worst thing that happened was I correctly guessed a Ballet question (!), which ...

Re: Monday, October 29, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Limbo" was my only miss in "O". I've never heard limbo to refer to that. I thought that was purgatory. That was a stupid clue. The writers usually do at least a cursory bit of research. There is no limbo in Catholic doctrine. I have the impression they screw up Biblical and the...

Why someone felt the need to bring up a 7 1/2 year old show -- or call it "the other night" -- I have no idea.
The email has probably been floating around that long.

April 11, 2005? That's going back a few years. Hardly, "the other night.." Kind of shows how little attention people pay to details when they're forwarding emails. The intersection between "People who frequently forward emails" and "People who do fact checking" is the ...

And even from the remove of 2,000 miles and two months, I could feel just how intensely Alex wanted Tori to win after interviewing her. She was certainly easy to root for. I felt bad that she didn't do so well. Loved her story, by the way. In college I had a friend with a prosthetic leg. We had a l...

That's pretty funny. It'd be funnier if it were the main area code for Roanoke Island, North Carolina. But I guess we can't have everything.

At least the area code for Cape Canaveral is 321.
