We get it. Even the easy ones can be elusive if your brain just gets on the wrong track. Congrats on your two victories!

Log out only or is log off acceptable as well?

EARLY WARNING: Viewers in the west seeing J! on ABC or NBC stations be ready for perhaps some displacement of the show airing in the normal time slot. KGO (ABC afiliate) has specials about each convention airing July 18 - 21 & July 25 - 28 in the 7-8 slot moving J! scheduled at 10 p.m on those Monday - Thursday nights.
Since you can log in or log on, log out and log off are both acceptable.

At this point, you're lucky to know when it will air next week. DirecTV isn't displaying any J! showings on KABC 'til Friday next week. I suspect they will put J! and WoF in the 10 pm slot. Currently, the listings for 2200 and 2300 are both local news.

Edited to add: I was wondering which song used the word "abolitionist". At first I thought it might have been snuck into the later verses of The Battle Hymn of the Republic, but it turns out to be called I am an Abolitionist shown here: http://utc.iath.virginia.edu/abolitn/absowwba17t.html

Interesting that it was sung to tune of the verses of Auld Lang Syne.

What a great game between some well above average players. I think Jeopardy is much more fun to watch with high level players and I am excited to see what Sue will do on tomorrow's show.

I've NHO "backcombing." If I were on the show, I would've protested for my response of "upbraiding," but I suppose that's a bit harsher than teasing.

Anybody who watches the show regularly (or even semi-regularly) should have gotten this right away. The Galapagos is (are?) probably Jeopardy!'s favorite island chain.

I was quite surprised by the cold buzzers. Quickly, within a few fractions of a second, which of the following have you heard of?

The Antarctican Union?
The North American Union?
The South American Union?
The African Union?
The Asian Union?
The Australian Union?

...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

I was thinking of physical geography, and guessed Eurasia. There really isn't a definitive boundary between the two, after all.

The African Union is a pretty big deal, and it's not like things like "Berlin Conference" sound particularly African, so I was a little gun shy.

As a desi was shamelessly rooting for Jason...I thought as soon as I saw the final question, here he goes again. I think Alex used the adjective "young" a dozen times in referring to him.

I did think of Africa first, but went with Europe. I think the Brexit vote being fresh in my mind tipped the scales, though this was obviously written prior to the vote and the game was likely taped prior to it as well.

Sad to see Jason go, he was a solid engaging player and an ultimate frisbee player to boot. He walks away with a good amount of cash but also a Darwin award.

Are you an ultimate player too, harrumph? I've been playing since I joined my college team 30 years ago.

I was for a bunch of years, loved it, I stopped playing when there was too many bullies in the local pick up game. I miss it but I recognize that at my age (57) that it's hard on the knees.

Bullies? In ultimate? That's a shame. Haven't they heard of the "spirit of the game"?

They've got a grandmasters tournament specifically for guys 50+ and gals 40+ held in Princeton each year. I went to the one last August. You should come out and check it out and maybe playing against a bunch of folks closer to your own age will rekindle the love of the game. I'll PM you when I know details.

I instagot Galapagos from Equator. I know that some of the TV satellites (which all circle the equator) are directly above the Galapagos.

And to whoever said it, St. Helena is not in the Western Hemisphere, even though it's slightly west of the prime meridian.
My philosophy: We watch for the game. Players who get in the way of the game intrude, whether they're arrogant or adlib or cackle or fidget or make noise or are rude to AT. We want those who just play the game and don't make it about themselves to win.

Thanks, I had not known of this tournament. The "big" league out here is the Mercer County one.
