We would ban you from our website if you didn't give the correct answer question to "FN FNC."

Poor Ken.

Made a board game.

Advertised on Jeopardy.

The same night he lost in the tournament of champions.

Never saw the ad again.

I miss Ken being on Jeopardy. He singlehandedly skyrocketed their ratings and was great fun to watch.

I'll pass.

One of my good friends got on Jeopardy and got spanked. I can truthfully say he is better educated and smarter than me, so the odds of me surviving with any ego left intact would be zero.

Pity they don't have an all-gun show. Would be pretty interesting for Final Jepardy, IMO.

No desire to be on Jeopardy.

I would like to be on Wheel of Fortune.

Or maybe I'd just like to be on Vanna.....

I need to try this

Everyone studied up yet? I am going to be FUBAR'ed if they ask a lot about Liturature, Pop Culture and Religion.

It would be cool to have someone from arfcom get on.

I can recite the periodic table of elements, know just about every damn country on the globe but I can't spell or write worth a shit.

Did you have to hit enter of submit for it to take the question. A lot of the time I was entering the answer when time expired. I drew a lot of blanks and of course bombed on the lit. questions.

I watch Jeopardy religiously and I usually will get 50-75% of the questions right. I have actually been trying to get on for 10 years. I hope I didn't blow my chance to night.

Ah fuck! I forgot all about it and missed the test!

Glad I wasn't the only one to think that it was a ball buster. Having to think and type in 10 seconds was rough.

BTW do you know if answers were accepted if you didn't hit the submit or enter button?

From Jeopardy's FAQ:


What happens if I want to skip ahead to the next clue?
You may choose to skip ahead to the next clue at any time. You should be aware that any partial data that you enter into the response field will be captured and submitted as is when the time expires for that clue.

Oh good, I might have something of a chance.......

I am stil pissed that I drew a blank on the "Who was secretary of state in 1974" I even met Kissinger a few years ago I am also pissed that I missed who wrote La Boheme.
