State Mottos
On a state seal since 1850, this one word motto is found in a story about Archimedes.

Spoiler
What is Eureka? Jim said Hope.

Sadly, the easy FJs continue. I mean, it's nice to make the FJ more about wagering than knowledge, but enough is enough, guys!

(And it's too bad they *didn't* do anything for April Fool's, I like some of their earlier ones, particularly this one)

Over the weekend, I read bill O'Reilly's book, Killing Lincoln. So you know what my precall was. Luckily, I was able to cross the country quickly to come up with the correct motto.

Congrats on making the TOC leader board, Rebecca!!!!!

Tough break for Jim on the 15+ letter words, but at least it didn't matter as he missed FJ.

And I was ready for the rebound on that, but they called it a dead ball (as it were).

I too was surprised there was no April Foolery. We thought they might edit it in afterwards.

Instaget FJ with "@#!& you". Then I got to Eureka. Maybe they're trying to train conestants to bet more on DDs (not that it would've helped Jim), since having the lead going into FJ is all that matters now.

$600 and $1000 were my only gets in Eats. I was reading about Cincinnati chili (which sounds outright disgusting) literally an hour ago. The other three seemed imepenetrable to me.

Surprised with my 0/5 in Disney Songs. Was expecting more animated movies, then started off on the wrong foot by getting Snow White and Cinderella mixed up. The other four, I've never seen.

I had "eureka" as soon as I saw "one-word motto".

I thought I stood no chance on FJ when I saw the category, but I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be an instaget.

Good thing it wasn't one of the 7 others, then. :)

( Maine, Dirigo; New York, Excelsior; Rhode Island, Hope; Texas, Friendship; Utah, Industry; Wisconsin, Forward; and possibly Washington, Al-ki)

Well that FJ was precalled. Would they ever ask about Arkansas's motto? I don't think so.

Excelsior and Forward I knew. But "Archimedes" only made it clearer that it was Eureka.

Would've liked to see some Disney song questions when I played.

Congrats to Rebecca! Hoping for a super long run from you now. :) This qualifying period is quite stressful.

Nearly ran: Paper, Hosts, Disney Songs, and Sociology (Going 4/5 on those).
Took me a few moments to get final. I thought it was "Forward" at first, but then switched it to "Eureka."

Congrats on the third win, Rebecca.
