Re: Reretaken Down

Ranker has a compendium of 25 triple stumpers from 2020. Warning: they’ve put the answers annoying close to the questions, so you have to take care not to spoil yourself. Ranker’s triple stumper list I got eight right. It would be nine if you accept old fart for old fogy Twelve, thirteen if coot wo...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I’d honestly like to have Levar Burton back to do some more weeks. I’d rather have a colonoscopy without anesthesia. I dunno. Womack Army Hospital at Fort Bragg in 1990 didn't believe in sedation prior to the procedure. Mine started at 0615 and I was at work by 0800. I would have been OK with watch...

Re: Tuesday, September 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did anyone get FJ from knowing what Armalcolite is before seeing the clue? I liked this FJ because it required some thinking, but enough was given in the clue to figure it out fairly quickly. Depends on how you define quickly. I got it as a "well, duh" just as time expired but wouldn't ha...

Re: Monday, September 13, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interesting set effect as the background curtains turned to red for FJ. Made me wonder if we were entering the Black Lodge. Perhaps we could hypothesize that maybe all the brouhaha wasn't caused by the real Mike Richards, but by an evil doppelganger. Wonder if he can dance while talking backward. Na...

Re: Reretaken Down

Frankfurt am Main ("Mainhattan") is Germany's financial center. Only #5 population-wise. I used to spend a lot of time at the Frankfurt airport, but never once got to Frankfurt. My one and only visit to Germany was a long layover at the Frankfurt airport. Apropos of nothing, I have very f...

Re: TD 464 - Semi-Autobiographical Summers (Final Results)

Nine questions answered, five sheep, one almost-sheep. And a dropped question when I would have had singleton. I didn't know threearruda was as diabolical as that -- but thanks for hosting nonetheless. And congrats to Kara and the other denizens of the podium. I'm not petty enough to hope for altitu...

Re: TD 464 - Semi-Autobiographical Summers (Q4-5 Revealed)

It wouldn't be a TD without me picking at least one SHEEP response. Sigh. Marty?? Really??? It's what makes TDs wild, wacky, frustrating, and fun. I hit three sheeps in a row, then dropped a question where my preferred response went unused and would have been a singleton. Interesting how so many of...

Re: REPORT: Mike Richards and Mayim Bialik to split hosting duties

Did you ever have someone try to turn you in? I’ve been questioned, but never arrested or charged. I was also the target of an investigation...but the police had the wrong target... A product of growing up the way I did and the circles in which I used to run. You could use what I think was an old W...

Wish you had posted this a couple of days before the game!

Wasn't familiar with the statue or the topic, so I wound up thinking Civil War and surrounding events. Went with [Clara] Barton and Tubman; would have probably named Truth if the answer required three names.

"Jaws" is a movie I watch at least once a year; not only a great film, but it had a profound impact on me in future trips to the beach after seeing it for the first time in 1975. Swimming in the ocean was never the same after that. I remember standing in line to go see Jaws when it came o...

Yeah, Joe Buck has been exactly like you'd expect him to be and it's fine for a week's diversion. I certainly wouldn't want him as the permanent host, though. I used to post more, but the last few weeks/months I've found that Kirk has been saving me a lot of time and energy. I can often just think,...
