Usa political stuff is more likely to appear on jeopardy. Could be why they’ve had power players weeks and not dart league champions week.

Keep this up and there won't be a 2020 thread... (or was that the plan all along?)
Nothing on the whole of page 36 is worth putting on a flashcard.

Eddie Murphy will host Saturday Night Live on December 21st. He hosted in 1982 while part of the cast. He hosted in 1984 after he left the show.

J! will come up with some kind of FJ! clue using their favorite math gap type of portion for the 35-year difference between hosting gigs.

Murphy characters: Mr. Robinson, Buckwheat, Gumby
He can also do James Brown and Stevie Wonder.

If there is a 2020 thread, I'll be deleting any and all irrelevant comments to the thread (like arguments -- if you need to argue, do it in PMs).

I will be doing the same. The whole idea of the thread was supposed to be able to cruise through it and pick up things to remind you about to improve yourself for Jeopardy. I hope that's clear.
