  1. The only Tarantino movie I thought worth the time was Reservoir Dogs.
  2. I meant that the kid was a vegan, not that the actual taco shell was. Sorry for any confusion.
  3. The commercial does not communicate it very clearly then. It's not a good advertisement for the product.
  4. I got all of those. I also got Quadrophenia, but I'll admit to saying Tommy first. <hangs head in shame> I didn't get Satchell Paige, although I should have. I don't know that I've ever seen a picture of him before. And West Point didn't dawn on me. I got the rest, but I did waffle between NM & Arizona at first. For FJ, I decided it was the capital of Belize (Belize City or Belmopan, I used to know this, damn it!), because I couldn't picture how much to the east South America is, and thus couldn't picture Panama being the farthest east of Central America. So after one of the worst games in ages, and particularly bad after the glory of the GOAT games, I'm still stuck with Veronica. Well, poop. I got mango, but instead of Balboa, I said DeSoto but with the "no, that other guy" added on. Nope, it's only east of Guatemala City & San Salvador. (Oh, and Alex? Mexico is part of North American, not Central America.) Regarding Priscilla, I had so much sympathy for her. I nearly burst into tears when I came in third after FJ, so I can only imagine how much worse she must've felt. Someday she'll be able to look back at it and say "Hey, I was good enough to get on Jeopardy, damn it", but that will take awhile. It can't help to know that her game will be out there on the internet forever.
  5. I know plenty of towns with no coffee shops. In the smallish, mostly rural Maryland county where I live, there are at least 3 towns with no coffee shops, and two towns which only got a coffee shop within the last few years. The town I live in has 3, but that's counting the one where you choose from a wide variety of coffee which you can buy in bean or ground form, and then take it home to make yourself - no sitting and drinking it there. (BTW, Wawa is not a coffee shop; it, like 7-11 and Royal Farms, is a convenience store where you buy your cup of coffee and leave. You don't drink it there.) Now, admittedly, most of these little rural towns are unlikely to get a Capital One café, either. I don't hate the commercial, exactly, but I do think they could explain the concept better. Oh, and most of those towns do have at least one bank. Exactly. There are bills I pay online, but only the ones where there's no surcharge to do so. The others I pay by check.
  6. I guess so, but I am wondering how you missed him. He was on CNN, MSNBC, and the news broadcasts for ABC, CBS and NBC talking about the Mueller investigation on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis. I still think at least one of them should have known him. Maybe he's one of those guys some people just don't register.
  7. I'd love to see Brad host, and I think he'd be good at it. I suspect, though, that the producers would probably go in a non-contestant direction.
  8. Old El Paso currently has a series of commercials where the taco shells are anthropomorphized and talk. That particular one involves a mommy taco bowl, a daddy taco bowl, and a vegan kid taco bowl. There are other ones. I find them all kind of disturbing since someone is going to eat the tacos.
  9. He's been consistently in the news ever since the Russia investigation started, which was long before this show was taped. So I am very surprised that none of the three recognized him; I would've expected at least one to know who that was.
  10. Oh, I don't disagree. I was solely judging on looks.
  11. Idk, Ken played like a freaking machine. (I mean that in a good way.)
  12. I call foul on Alex accepting Veronica's answer of "seasonal affectiveness" as correct for the SAD clue. That is not the name of the disorder and it is not what SAD stands for: it's "seasonal affective disorder". It was only a $400 clue so it didn't make a difference in the long run, but it was wrong. FJ was an absolute instaget for me. A Wrinkle In Time is one of my very favorite books, and I recently re-read it. I don't know why, but I don't like Veronica and will be very glad when she's gone. (Although with my luck, whoever replaces her will probably be worse.) And yes, that shirt was hideous. I was gobsmacked that none of the contestants recognized that photo of Adam Schiff. He's been all over the news for months. I had no idea what state he represented, but I'd have expected someone not living in a cave for the last 3 years to have been able to identify the photo. I've often wondered precisely how someone could drink fresh mango juice while comatose. I didn't get pepper or satellites but did get the others, as well as Adam Schiff and The Prince of Tides/The Great Santini. Me, too. So I easily got hitman. I got Sojourner Truth, and said "No, the other one." to the contestant who answered Harriet Tubman. Because it's always one or the other. I knew Harriet Tubman was born in Maryland (on the lower Eastern Shore, specifically), New York. I said "That Steve guy". Shouldn't that have counted?
  13. I said Yeezy's Jesus album - I should get partial credit for that, right?
  14. There were a couple of clues for which I had no answer, but the rest I knew. Yay, I feel smart again! Okay, so I did consider Australia for FJ but did change to Canada in plenty of time to write it down. I'll confess to not answering Red Dwarf when I wanted to - I wasn't sure if it was correct, so I said nothing. Pooey.
  15. Intellectually, I get why. He was so uptight that she could barely breath around him. But visually speaking, no way would I have picked Harvey Keitel over Sam Neill. I still think Judy Davis' character in My Brilliant Career should've married his character.
