As I hoped for a station went rogue to break away from the testimony to air J! before going back to the hearing.

Francois had to have the right country in S.A. for being completely below the Tropic of Capricorn with $8000 on the line at DD3. The clutch solve vaulted him to the lead he was able to pad for the FJ! round.

Great job by Lindsey and Gilbert to make Francois work harder than he had to in QF5. Lindsey was in position to take the game on a FJ! clue that did not line up to favor Francois as much as today's did. Instead Francois earned the finals spot with the sole solve.

Once again a fair amount of tourney wishers got what they wanted in a J! tournament as the threesome for the finals had many mentions for the dream.

The FJ! clue was a miss for me as I tried Galvani for liking him more than Volta to have a name on the paper. Getting as far as the barometer guy was not going to be enough. Only with Chris Harrison giving me choices could I have come up with the right guy.

This is the most recent appearance of the right guy in a clue, so not too long ago:
Spoiler
Show
#8029, aired 2019-07-04 MEN OF SCIENCE $1200: He referred to his pupils Antonio Nardi, Raffaello Magiotti & Evangelista Torricelli as his Roman triumvirate
For the FJ! round the guy only has this appearance:
Spoiler
Show
#2901, aired 1997-03-24 SCIENCE: Not long after its development, Robert Boyle renamed the Torricellian Tube this
And for asking for the guy himself, I only found one:
Spoiler
Show
#6787, aired 2014-03-04 SCIENCE TIMELINE $2000: In 1643 this Italian inverted a 4-foot mercury-filled tube in a dish, creating the first barometer

I'm interested to see how Francois does today, he might be the dark horse in this thing while everyone focuses on James vs Emma. Francois has the most money earned so far through the first round with $34,300. If he scores another lopsided victory today it will be quite an interesting Thursday & Friday to find the champion.

Getting my scoresheet ready for later, I did the J!6 clues to get the categories ahead of time. The first category of the J! round?

1 more guess for Bernoulli. Thank for getting FJ and the results up quick.

Getting this right is a big plus for Francois. Shows he has deep knowledge.

Numbers looking ahead the finals based on the QF & Semifinal games:
Spoiler
Show

Francois: 20,800 Coryat avg. (25600 + 16000), FJs 2/2, DDs 3/3, Lock + 1st entering FJ! round
James: 26,900 Coryat avg. (31200+22600), FJs 1/2, DDs 3/3, Lock + Lock
Emma: 19,800 Coryat avg. (20400+19200), FJs 2/2, DDs 2/2, 1st + 1st
My plan is to get some lunch and then work on archiving the game. If they phone stays quiet than I should have the game archived by 1:00ish my time.

I would venture that this is probably a dream Final Jeopardy in a ToC context for a high school physics teacher.

As a matter of fact, I recalled that exact quote about the ocean of air in my college physics textbook.

OFFICIAL STATE STUFF $200: California has no official state fruit, but does have four state nuts--the almond, the pecan, the walnut, and this

Too bad it was a clue with a picture as otherwise it was open to a bunch of humorous misses if someone like KJ had the luxury of the scoreboard allowing a little mischievousness.

R-W entering the finals:
Spoiler
Show

James: 33R + 27R & 1W + 1W
Emma: 23R + 21R & 1W + 2W
Francois: 24R + 18R & 0W + 1W

Emma & Francois are going to need big DDs to the good to keep James from running away. The real contest may turn out to be the one for the $100,000 second place prize. I expect no threat to the fun nonsense of James trying to get more than $250,000 over the two days.

Heck yeah baby! James vs. Emma vs. Francois all the way!

And of course I'm rooting for James! Let's see if he can avenge himself :twisted:

Well, I got my desired trio for the Finals, but I wouldn't have minded seeing any of the three win this spectacular game. Lindsey is scrappy, but Francois is clutch!

As far as FJ!: I'm not sure if this is common knowledge or not, but "torr" is a unit of pressure (with 760 torr equaling one atmosphere). Knowing that would seem to be the most direct path to the correct response, and I was confident that the physics teacher would take that path.

That was a weird ruling on industrialization.

Ran "O_ED".

Best wrong guess: "Laugh maniacally" + "bird" leading me to woodpecker.

0/5 in Bestsellers. Didn't know Demi Lovato had a book, and that clue seemed insanely YEKIOYD for the top box.

Anyone else think that "keep calm and carry on" was MONSTROUSLY HUGE negbait on the Famous Americans DD? That was my only miss in the category.

Good bottom-row gets for me: Bechdel, Uruguay, Social darwinism

No guess on FJ! No recognition on the correct response.

Amazing how quickly Lindsey went from in complete control to...not. Impressive comeback by Francois.

It's been a while since I was as sure a reversal was coming in real time as when Alex initially negged 'industrial revoluion'. "Sorry, we were looking for a single term"...um, what!? Didn't think the reversal would come that fast, though.

FJ: bleargh. Got as far as 'the guy who invented the barometer' and was even able to dig the torr out of the deep recesses, but couldn't pull the name in time. First miss of the TOC, after surviving the Belt coin flip yesterday.

Also, three cheers for the wagers.
