haha yeah that's easy as shit even if you've never seen 12 angry men. it's ingrained in the culture enough that nearly everybody knows it's about a jury (even if that's all they know about it)

but i mean, he didn't know it was going to be that easy when he risked 18 grand

and even if you don't know that, i think plenty of people know that juries are composed of 12 people. and by the end of things, usually 12 angry people.

yeah, he didn't know when he made the wager...that's why it's kinda funny in the video when you can see the look of relief on his face when he sees his clue.

it wasn't so dumb a move to bet 18000

if he had bet just enough to get 2x the other guy's score, the other kid still could have caught up to half of his score with the last few clues of the round

assuming one kid swept all the remaining questions, the highest he could go was 16,800. or, one half of 33,600. never mind that the other kid wasn't going to do that, leonard still over-wagered. he also put himself in a position where a 'wrong' answer basically would end his day.

it wasn't really stupid so much as it was highly unnecessary.

There's supposed to be a category devoted to the works of Stephen King tonight according to his message board...hope I remember I'll sweep that one easily.

There was a question about the wire last night, and the pretty girl knew it, but she still lost

those folks were hopeless

that category could provide spoilers to anyone in the middle of a stephen king book. they might not know if a character is going to die or not

 they will

Thanks... don't get too excited though, I did the same thing 2 years ago, and took a giant brain dump at the live auditions. But at least I'll have an excuse to get out of town for a bit. I've never really hung out in Nashville before, except for when I visited Vanderbilt in high school, and stupidly decided not to attend.

the current controversy is over how Jeopardy! could conscionably air repeats from LESS THAN A YEAR AGO. it's always shitty when they do their summertime repeats, but this is something else.

pretty embarrassing that 3 teachers on the show tonight didn't know the name of Canada's current prime minister.

Has anyone been keeping up with the Battle of the Decades tournament that is going on right now? Always nice to see Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter runaway with games but also really cool seeing 80's jeopardy stars on the show.

sad news indeed. you just take it for granted that you are going to hear his voice most evenings, he was a ritual for my family. right after dinner everyone watched. he seems resolute in doing all he can, that is an awesome place to start.

jeopardy! has been a constant part of my entire life. therefore, so has alex trebek. nowadays, each episode is always the first thing i watch on my dvr when i come home from work and need to wind down from a long day. @DAntae, you said it better than i ever could about taking him and the show for granted, and his positivity towards the diagnosis. well said as always, dan

FUCK CANCER. beat this shit, alex, and fulfill your contract!
