On Ellens game show last night one of the questions was name brands owned by coke. I got it wrong on #2. I said Dr. Pepper. I always thought they were owned by coke but apparently they are not. I was sad



It's actually owned by Keurig, the single cup coffee company.
Dr. Pepper is manufactured by Pepsi in Canada. And manufactured by Coca Cola in Europe.

It's the American Motors of soft drinks.

Reminder that the first Jeopardy online test is tomorrow at 5:00 Pacific time. I'm planning to take that one. Here, again, are all the times:

March 27 2019, 5:00PM PT
April 9 2019, 5:00PM PT
April 10 2019, 6:00PM PT
April 11 2019, 8:00PM PT
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

that is so weird. It seems that we can buy it at most restaurants that sell coke but none that sell pepsi. Does distribute it?

They allowed me to register for both tomorrow night and in 2 weeks, fwiw. If it lets me go twice, I will.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

How did you actually register? I am still not sure I'll be allowed to take the test tomorrow.

I was also allowed to register for March 27 and a date in April. I did register on two completely different weeks -maybe that was a factor.
Sometimes, people are just a bottomless mystery. And, after all, this is just a sh*tty little forum in the sun-less backwaters of the online world.

Can you make a Video? That would be fun for us to watch. Live streaming would even be better.


We could even have a betting line/pool.

Assuming no live stream you could post up the questions and we can guess/bet on what ones you got wright or wrong. Agian, this would be fun.

After I signed back in (from previous years) it said, you are eligible for the following try-outs. Today was by itself as a choice, then the April dates as a group. I checked both circles, and it confirmed I was registered.

There's a countdown to the test on my signed-in test page. I don't know if that shows on yours? But they say to log-in at least 30 min prior to the test, and that the portal will open 1 hour prior. Access from the home page or take the test page.

Shoot. I found an Email from Jeopardy in my junk folder asking me to sign up for a test. The one today was not on the list. When I tried to register for the following test date, it had me mark it on my Google calendar, but I don't get the feeling that I'm on any kind of list on Jeopardy's end. Every other path leads me to auditioning in person for a test in West Palm Beach.

Anyway, I'll log into my Jeopardy account after 4:00 PM today in the unlikely event it will let me take the test.

I don't like I'm so stressed out about this, as I am simply not smart enough to be worthy to be on the show. Heck, I'm not even smart enough to properly register for the test.

I do wish you and anyone else taking the test today that the questions hit you well. Please let us know how it went after the test.
