R: 29, W: 4, costing 3600
Coryat: 21,000
FJ: :mrgreen:
DD: another 0-fer
LT: Jan 6, VW, Stutz

One for the judges: collusion instead of conspiracy?

This was one of my better performances. Not show-worthy yet, but improving.

Ran the car category. Answered every clue before the Alex could finish reading them. I've never thought of myself as a car guy, but I guess I'll have to fess up to being one.

FJ! was a get on what I feel was a good guess. From previous shows (or maybe the TD quizzes), I know the most populous country in Africa was one of the poorest ones. That eliminated Egypt and South Africa from the top spots and left them available for #3. Not enough desert in SA, so I guessed Egypt. I'll take it.

I've read several news articles recently which said that the word "collusion" has little or no legal meaning, so I would say [Trumpian voice] NO COLLUSION![/Trumpian voice]

My precall for FJ! was Nambia. :lol:
I was thinking Normay, but wasn't sure about how much desert was there....
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I decided quickly it was a Saharan country. My first thoughts were Algeria and Libya, but decided neither would be that populous. I then came to the conclusion that having a major world city like Cairo would make it more likely to have a huge population.

I did not know Ethiopia had that many people.
Same here on both. Cairo proper has an estimated 12 million people (metro area: 21 million), and none of the other North African cities come close.

Anybody go with Algeria? I was mentally debating between the two before settling on Egypt.
That's what I probably would've gone with if it hadn't been that I had recalled how surprised I was at the population of Egypt when I flipped a coin between Myanmar and South Korea on an FJ about the most populous country a UN Secretary General came from.
