Reminder there is another Jeopardy online test at 5PM Pacific time today. Per an Email I just received, I'm properly registered and am planning to crash and burn in six hours.

No, I'm afraid I'll embarrass myself with how badly I do.

Pass big helpings of crow and humble pie, not to mention the dunce cap. I'm going sit in the corner and feel sorry for myself for a while after the beating I just took on that test. At least I didn't record it.

In the same boat as you as it was much harder than I thought it would be.

I wonder if everyone had the same test or we all got 50 random questions?

Did you have one where the answer was Ty Cobb for sports for The Georgia Peach?

I took it, too, and I did record it, but I bombed so badly I'm not up for posting it unless someone HAS to see it.

Yes, I had the Ty Cobb question.

I missed 18 for sure, 2 I'm not sure if they'll give me credit, so between 30 and 32. Horrible for getting on the show.

whats worse, I gave away 7 where I knew the answer but blanked at the time, Arggghh.

If anyone wants the answers to the ones I missed, they're behind the spoiler below. Which is where the video will go if anyone wants to see it. But id rather transcribe the test than have people listen to my choking on allergies and sniffling while I took it.


1`. dumas (knew this, went blank)
2. lady. cat.idk...monster! auggh (too late)
5. red dead redemption
7. rossini (knew this, went blank)
10. chevron
11. billions
12. william the conqueror (knew this, went blank)
14. hansberry
15. bangladesh
20. spotnitz
26. penultimate (knew this, went blank)
30. antarctica (should have made a better guess and gotten this)
35. achilles (knew this, went blank)
39. noble gases (I read the question wrong - thought it said 6-letter name. couldn't think of a one that met that. arggh.) EDIT: people are saying the answer is halogen. which is what i was going to write, but it had seven letters. Auggh.
40. woodwinds (maybe they will accept reeds, idk, went back and forth)
44. flamenco may have been correct, but could also be fandango. idk.
47. class
48. idk. "It can mean to underwrite a business venture, or the wad of paper money to do so". total blank EDIT: bankroll. augghh!!!
49. a farewell to arms
50. donald glover

Exact same questions based on your spoilers.

I did get some of those right but missed plenty others. I’m thinking I was around 23-27 correct. I suck.

Yes. I had no clue on that one and guessed Joe Dimaggio.

I'm quite sure that everyone for a given day gets the same test.
