Mira got to plug her podcast "History on Trial" during chat. Kate got to show off her cool Space Shuttle earrings. And Jesse met Simu Liu. Good chat segment.

Original play:
Kate 1x
Mira 2x
Jesse 1x

It took a little bit of time but Mira with more experience won on DJ30 getting $400 to seal the runaway.

The FJ! clue had me match Kate & Mira more by thinking of the right structure and knowing the country where to match it than by flag knowledge. I was happy not to see any of the players do a Taj Mahal to India path to a miss.

Andy at The Jeopardy! Fan noted that this is the first known game in 40 seasons when all three players bet $0 in the FJ! Round. Archivists still have about 250 games to go (prayer hands to receive them) to confirm it.

Spoiler for January 18 show:
Spoiler
Somebody had the Cambodia wiki page open to write the Pol Pol FJ, and they figured, why not write a flag FJ too.
Is 3 weeks along enough that I don't need to spoiler results from previous eps?

The recent Cambodia-related FJ is the only thing that gave me pause about my response, but I knew it couldn't be referring to the Taj Mahal so I trusted my instincts on this one. Congrats to Mira!

OK, maybe I'm the only one who learned about these today:



I'm hoping that these aren't used to maintain any airplanes I fly. What are they possibly good for giving a 2:1 mechanical advantage on larger nuts? Can I use them on my lug nuts? Can I use them on YOUR lug nuts :lol:?

The number of times I've heard "L-wrench" is still zero. I've named my Allen wrenches as "Alvin" wrenches ever since seeing the Tom Hanks movie about a grumpy widower. And they are all the "usual" size.

Nice comeback by Mira, she must have had the buzzer mojo to get away with running all but one of the clues in the endgame.

Is it my imagination or is Herman Melville coming up a lot the last couple of weeks? We've had today's video clue with his gravestone asking for his name, and clues about "Moby Dick", "Billy Budd" and "Omoo".

I was wondering if she’d end in a lock-tie and then lose in FJ, thus causing eternal regret at holding back that $200 on the DD.
