You guys are probably giving this more thought than the contestant, since he still got 2nd place, if I recall. He thought of the response too late and didn't have time to finish writing it. How obvious is that? Can't fathom why they disallowed it? You don't literally mean that, do you? Not to be all Scroogey, but bah humbug.
Hey, man. You want to know why I'm here? I've got a perfectly good group of friends over in alt.fan.cecil-adams on the vastly superior Usenet. It's a group with proper threading where I can see all replies to my posts by tapping a single key, where I can move from one subject to the next one by tapping another key, where the command to show me my unread posts actually shows me only my unread posts.
But over there in that corner of the Usenet paradise known as alt.fan.cecil-adams, I used to post questions and thoughts about Jeopardy from time to time. Most of the other posters hadn't seen the episode I was asking about or couldn't recall the details or didn't have any constructive thoughts about wagering strategy or whatever. And there was always this one guy, a guy named rroger, who would respond to my nitpicky queries with something like, "I have a question. Why do you care?"
So I came here, where we do
care, where the threading is non-existent, where I have to search for replies to my posts by skimming screen after screen, where moving from one subject to the next is clumsy at best, WHERE THE SMILIES ARE ANIMATED
AND PEOPLE USE THEM ANYWAY, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!!! But at least we care about Jeopardy. So I will NOT have you calling our discussion "meaningless" and suggesting we are giving matters too much thought. If that's the way you feel, I suggest you make your way to alt.fan.cecil-adams and hang out with rroger. Good day to you, sir.
I said, "Good day"!
