Interesting. They are actually slowing down time. When I signed in, the countdown basically matched the clock on this computer but now my computer shows 9:00 but there is still over 3 minutes to wait.

:dunno:

So this was my official test. I got 37 out of 50 which I am not thrilled with but it is good enough.

If I get the call for an audition it will be in Columbus Ohio.

The current Jeopardy champ is a fucking beast. Guy knows everything and he has seemingly perfect buzzer technique. Not nearly as aggressive a bettor as Holzauer but I think he's gonna be on for quite a while.

I'll have to check him out. He's already on his 14th game and that doesn't happen very often.

Nothing to do with a contestant search but this is something I am looking forward to.

Jeopardy! to find show's greatest ever champion as record breaking players James Holzhauer, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter go head-to-head for $1million prize

(go Brad)

Just read a story about Trebeks wife - shes a reiki practitioner. Guy loses more than a little respect for that.

I'm registered. Hoping for a miracle where all the questions are about 90's music, motorcycles, electronics and recent pop culture that doesn't include hip hop.

I basically just need stuff I've memorized. That's a lot of of stuff - I expect to pass the test. But my brain doesn't do the rapid-fire work-it-thru like it used to.

If I ever got on the show I would be very happy but I would also be, like, why couldn't this have happened 15 years ago?

Guess since I'm the only one here who pays attention to the political nonsense it shouldn't surprise me!
