I was gonna wear the shirt I wore this past weekend to NY Comic Con:

Look. You're on a national television show; you're in the public eye. We "shouldn't" worry about behavior, clothing, voice volume etc; but we're going to. Human nature and all that. I missed last night's episode (and won't be home for tonight :( ), so I didn't see the shirt and question, but I'll fight for everyone's right to talk about it.~

If you bring a carryon containing 3 or more camera-ready outfits and don't have to make a connecting flight in 10 minutes, the responsible adults on board hate you. It's been more than thirty years since I had a checked bag miss a flight, and it was delivered a few hours later.

I too would live in jeans and a polo or knit shirt 100% of the time if I could. However, I'm not going to a wedding, high-ticket fundraiser, or Jeopardy! audition dressed that casually. More than half the men who were in my audition group in Kansas City this year were in jeans which I've never seen before.

And another thing, you kids get off my lawn!

Don't care as long as I can have my liposuctionist in the green room. And some snacks.

Where do I click for "I wore a polo shirt on the show"?
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.

Huh? Pretty much everyone on board brings a carry-on these days. Kind of a consequence of charging for checked bags. The only time I ever check a bag anymore is if I'm going on a ski trip and bring skis. Can't imagine checking a bag with just clothes in it.

If and when I get the call, I'm bringing my four favourite band t-shirts and my Tottenham jersey. And y'all can suck it.

And yes I know that wouldn't be allowed but y'all can still suck it.

It also appears to be human nature to care what other people think, but if you can get past that and focus on the game, you're probably better off (cf. Arthur Chu).

Judging by Chu's response to online criticism, he cares a lot what other people think of him (unless that was all self-promotion, which also depends on what people think). Indeed, his current so-called job of online commenter and crusader against the "rape culture" also depends on what people think.
