    I like KJ's mannerisms, but I don't like the actual sound of his voice. I guess it's too wheezy? It's not just the pitch, but the actual sounds that make it up.

    It wasn't that obscure; it was a unit in my 9th grade US Government class.

    In all fairness, my 9th grade was probably a lot longer ago than your 9th grade. :p

    Yeah, as I noted a couple posts up, the JBoard get rate was 80%, so not as obscure as I thought. This is why my LL defense sucks, I have a tough time knowing what others don't know.

    I knew it right away, but that's only because something similar came up relatively recently on some other trivia I saw/watched/read. When I was a kid in the 80s, I thought Ethiopia had an extensive sea front, and this trivia said it was landlocked, so it got me curious to see if my memory was just bad and that's when I learned that Eritrea was created in the 90s which took away Ethiopia's sea front. For those of us who graduated HS before that, we likely wouldn't have had any idea.

    I did too. When I heard 1993 I knew which country. And I have long been aware that Ethiopia lost its coast.

    56 years ago for second semester, when the XYZ Affair came up.

    Do we all think that was older footage of Johnny that got spliced in? I think I saw an audience behind him.

    There was also a crew member standing behind him who almost certainly would be wearing a mask in current times.

    There was an entire category of songs preserved for posterity. I've mentioned this before about at least one of them, but other than the "Fiddler on the Roof" soundtrack, I have to ask WHY?

    Why would they be having a 90+ year-old Johnny come to the studio to record his intros when he could easily just do that gig from a home studio? I mean, when there is an audience present, it makes sense. But since they're not filming in front of an audience, there's no point in JG being there live.

    Yeah, I was sure of it, but something compelled me to phrase it in the form of a question :D

    The best example I can think of is Peter Sagal. During a "best of" episode of his NPR show I could hear the acoustics from recording live with an audience in an auditorium. For the past year he has been described as being in his closet at home. While many of the celebrity guests have poor audio, his is perfect. The celebrity panelists usually have audio that is good enough quality to convince me they are all in the same room.

    Last night, my wife remarked that Jon looked like Les Nessman from WKRP, and I couldn't not think about it every time he was on screen tonight. Lol

    See? 3rd place did the right thing! 1st and 2nd place were tied. They both risked it all. 3rd place risked nothing. Triple stumper.
    3rd place wins!
    Future Jeopardy contestants take note!

    Just watched our daily Tivo of the episode. Glitch right as the FJ music was playing and then a perfect gap. Like it was planned as some kind of joke!

    So I researched the appropriate methodology quickly and set up to do a free trial for a service and a VPN for someplace in Colorado to get a later play time, but my wife cheated and searched out the ending so I won't bother.

    A classic.

    I am really glad I didn't read this until after his run had ended.:D

    After her wager, before they went to the tied guys, I said to my wife, "Smart bet. Really smart bet".

    She won the same amount as 2nd place.

    Gee, thanks for the spoiler!

    I guess I don't need to watch it tonight.

    So... you're reading the Jeopardy thread at 10pm, the day it aired.

    And you didn't expect spoilers?!?

    But hey, we saved you 30 minutes. You're welcome!
