<waves> Yes, I was in on that discussion. I need to stop caring. Your TSA-detained story reminds me of the Denver agent who was arrested for molestation. And the Canadian border guard who made sure to feel me up, twice, when I drove into Ontario. And again when I drove out. Gah. Happy Thursday. I guess.

Meanwhile, no good deed goes unpunished!

I have to say, as traumatizing as it was, they were very polite and I didn't feel molested. But I was extremely anxious because there was no earthly reason they should have found traces of chemicals on my hands. I finally put it down to my hand lotion. So I will always wash my hands before going through security in the future.

I thought of Diego Rivera (the hubs and I said - yeah, Frieda's guy) but unfortunately I said Diego Garcia.

Thank you, that makes sense.  As for the matching T-shirts, maybe Disney changed the rules or it was a different Disney park. The people who told me about it were quite definite but it was a long time ago.

Things change. When I went to Disney for my high school graduation (All night at the park with other CA teenagers), the boys had to wear a suit. A friend of mine wore a very nice sweater (think Mr. Rogers - my friend was a little fashion backward) and they made him go across the street and rent a jacket. Girls weren't supposed to wear pants unless they were nice pants suits. Mine wasn't exactly a "pants suit" by I got by. No way I was wearing a dress to an amusement park. Anyway, this was a very long time ago. My ex husband wasn't hired at Disney because he had a mustache - and he wouldn't shave it off.

I know it didn’t matter since it was a runaway, but being ruled incorrect on spelling when it’s pronounced the same (Barry vs Berry)??? And please don’t start with the Mary/merry/marry thing. Pretty sure at least half the US doesn’t hear the difference. 

I don't pronounce them the same way, and apparently neither do the Jeopardy judges, so I have no problem with it being ruled incorrect.  Definitely a case where you just want to put the last name.

thought I’d read somewhere that spelling didn’t count in FJ as long as it didn’t change the meaning.

It's the pronunciation which matters when it comes to spelling.  Misspellings are fine if they don't change the pronunciation, and many people pronounce Barry and Berry differently.

It's not really the same thing, but I was reminded of one of the young people's tournaments a few years ago where the contestant put down "Emanciptation Proclamation" or something like that and was ruled incorrect.  I thought that was kind of a bum call too.

That misspelling made a big change to the pronunciation so it was correctly ruled wrong.  (e-man-cip-tation vs. e-man-ci-pation)

American seascapes are always Winslow Homer on Jeopardy.  Just like New England male poets are always Robert Frost.

However in that list of mistakes that were allowed previously that I posted a couple of days ago:

9-28-16 – HISTORIC HOMES: Also known as the “House of His Majesty”, Fairfield House in England was the home of this African leader from 1936 to 1941.
ACCEPTED: Salassie (Selassie)

I would definitely pronounce Salassie differently from Selassie. If they accepted that they should have accepted Barry for Berry. It is also a name that you could say his name is Selassie and Salassie is a different name (as someone argued for Barry/Berry) but they still accepted it. Also:

11/05/2014 – ARTISTS: Illustrations by this man show why his name has become the standard for children’s book artistry.
ACCEPTED: Caldicot (Caldecott)

Whoever made that rule never saw a photo of Walt Disney?

He hadn't even been dead 10 years at the time. So that rule was made by people who probably knew Walt. Go figure.

So, in regards to Barry vs Berry, Merriam Webster says:

Quote

Bar·ry | \ ˈber-ē, ˈba-rē \

ber·ry | \ ˈber-ē, , ˈbe-rē \

These are identical. Though of course, regional accents will make a difference. I personally have never heard anyone say the two words differently, but then I never paid that much attention. I say them identically.

MW does offer one other pronunciation for Barry, with a French pronunciation (Bah - ree). I've never heard that one outside of Europe. But again, it's not like I'm an expert.

Quote

Bar·ry | \ bä-ˈrē

Yeah, this came up elsewhere recently, so the numbers are still in my head:  The famous Harvard Dialect Study found that nearly 60 percent of Americans pronounce them all the same.  (Nearly 20 percent pronounce each of the three distinctly, and then the rest pronounce "marry" and "Mary" the same but "merry" differently.)

 

This is interesting. I agreed with the FJ call because 'Barry' and 'Berry' are distinct to me. I didn't realise that this isn't the case for most Americans. I'm from an island in the English-speaking Caribbean where most would pronounce 'Mary' and 'merry' similarly, and 'marry' completely differently.

I could listen to Herman read the phone book.  He has a great voice.

I got ageism, kibitz, and Flint.  I also got FJ, finally.  Byron was my first thought, but I didn't think that passage fit with what I (barely) remember of his poetry.  Coleridge came to mind at the last second in plenty of time to write it down.

I have a friend (from Kentucky, if that's at all relevant) who pronounces Mary, marry, and merry the same way.

i'm afraid i do too.  dell and dale , hale, hell.  I'm a native of florida 

Ha!  On Family Feud the other night, the question was "Something people in Hell have to stand in all day long."  And Steve Harvey most definitely pronounces "in Hell" and "inhale" the exact same way - and it was obvious that some of the contestants thought he said "inhale"!  Uh...Oxygen? I certainly thought he said "inhale."

I pronounce my first name and Merry Christmas exactly the same.  I pronounce Marry with just bit more of a short "a" sound.  But I pronounce Barry Manilow, Berry cream pie, and Bury me not on the Lone Prairie exactly the same way!  

I knew what poem it was (although I thought the title was "Xanadu" rather than Kubla Khan,)  But I couldn't for the life of me think who wrote it, although I was pretty sure it wasn't Byron.  Shelley?  Keats? ...Maybe Wordsworth??   Couldn't have come up with Coleridge if I'd had the whole half-hour of the show to think about it!

I hate to beat the Mary/marry/merry dead horse still more, but this reminded me of a time a few years ago the same discussion came up on a forum I was on.  Around the same time, I caught a rerun of 3rd Rock from the Sun, in which Dick and Mary, who were engaged, went to visit her family during the winter holidays.  So they could talk about Mary's plan to marry, and wish each other Merry Christmas.  I tried my best to hear if they pronounced any of those differently, but I couldn't.  But then, maybe it was in character, as they were aliens posing undercover as Earthlings from Ohio.

But regardless of whether we agree with the Jeopardy! judges' decision or not, can we at least all agree that there are people, generally depending on where they live, who hear and pronounce things differently from each other, and it's not due to some kind of basic ignorance or character flaw?

Same here. I'm not sure I had even heard of it as a structure in Rome. And it seems an underwhelming building for such flowery praise - but reactions were probably quite different in the Renaissance.

From Wikipedia:

Quote

The building is cylindrical with a portico of large granite Corinthian columns (eight in the first rank and two groups of four behind) under a pediment. A rectangular vestibule links the porch to the rotunda, which is under a coffered concretedome, with a central opening (oculus) to the sky. Almost two thousand years after it was built, the Pantheon's dome is still the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome. The height to the oculus and the diameter of the interior circle are the same, 43 metres (142 ft).

Sounds like a remarkable architectural feat. The interior is impressive.

Some day, when we can travel for pleasure again, this is actually really amazing to stand inside.  It's a beautiful building, but during the day, when the sun is high and showers down through the oculus--it's absolutely mind-blowing.  Or was for me, when I spent a (very) long weekend exploring some of the great Roman sights.

@Grundoon59 - I'm so sorry for your loss

I pronounce Berry & Barry differently, but Mary/merry the same. And marry differently still.

Kelly was too extra for my tastes. 

When Alex announced that contestants would be local for the time being, hubby said, "that's why you haven't been contacted for an audition" Probably more like I bombed the test but he gets brownie points for that.

When Alex asked buff Joe if the flag move was done in men's gymnastics, hubby said it sounded like a stripper pole move lol

My mom's only concern was that I would be too scared to sleep that night (I was around 11 or 12)). Shawshank is that movie that I will always watch (well, almost...some channels do better at editing than others; I caught it once on WE TV, of all places, and it was so bad I didn't last ten minutes).
