Since we're being nit picky (even though it's probably just a typo), it's baling wire.
Probably an accuracy/precision analogy there...
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

Looking at the week's contestants on Jeopardy!'s website, Daniel from this episode is returning tomorrow, September 14. Does anyone know if anything went wrong in this episode that caused him to be invited back?

I'm legitimately scratching my head at this one.

I can't see anything in the clue or category when it comes to any of Daniel's incorrect responses that would warrant him being returned.

Per Reddit, this is an incredibly regretful and pretty terrible mix-up from the web team.

I thought you meant the web team invited him back by accident.

It’s an entirely different Daniel Lee appearing on the show and they re-used a picture. It looks like nobody was invited back.
I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

There's gotta be a way to blame Mike Richards for this ...

You would have thought they would have learned from the incident where Courtney Shah's picture appeared next to the name of an unrelated (and male) player with the same last name.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I heard he's the one that re-used the picture on the grounds that "all those people look alike anyway."

It's fixed, we now have Season 38 Daniel Lee up on the Contestant Zone page.
