kbronsito: They let some guy use 'war between the states' instead of 'civil war' but fark over a kid on penmanship. Fark you trebek.
The Muthaship: So, he was going to lose either way?Did I miss something?
tacos4jesus: still a jerk move
Mugato: That fat kid who did win, I wish he was carrying textbooks so I could dump them.
Farce-Side: kbronsito: They let some guy use 'war between the states' instead of 'civil war' but fark over a kid on penmanship. Fark you trebek.We also would have accepted "the war of Northern aggression."
stoli n coke: Jeopardy is supposed to be a show to celebrate intelligence. It's not too much to ask that the contestants know how to farking spell. Even the dolts that are on Wheel of Fortune can do that much.
Gunny Highway: Most importantly, can we STOP the Kids Tournament? The teen one is bad enough.
LemSkroob: Somehow they felt they needed to get the D-level students involved somehow, so they decided these wonderful beings would be great as score keepers.I was in the last game of my group, the winner would go on to the finals. The dunce they assigned to be my scorekeeper didn't bother to learn how the game forcing works, and decided that when i picked a question, and nobody buzzed in with an answer, he should still take the point value of my score. I watched the farker do this three times, and he cost me the game.
carej: Who names a boy "Skyler"?
Rapmaster2000: Gunny Highway: Most importantly, can we STOP the Kids Tournament? The teen one is bad enough.I got Final Jeopardy wrong two nights ago. Some stupid kid got it right. I bet I could totally beat him up.So anyway, I saw this one the other night. I didn't know Jeopardy was so hung-up on spelling. We know what the kid meant, and besides, how many adults do you know that can spell Emancipation Proclamation? By my anecdotal evidence, 50% of the adults on the internet can't spell "loser".
Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: The Muthaship: So, he was going to lose either way?Did I miss something?Yeah, he also lost $6,000 (his $3k wager plus what he didn't win due to his misspelling).
s2s2s2: Lern too spail, Dumess Moran!
kobrakai: carej: Who names a boy "Skyler"?It's a cool name. It's like a cross between skateboard and Tyler.
Umeraken Ideut: I was more concerned with the first girl's answer. I get that they're kids, but don't you figure out who wrote the bill of rights and then, later, a Lincoln appears, fairly early in school?
swahnhennessy: I'm not seeing the outrage here. He lost regardless and walked away with what he'd have gotten either way.
jimpoz: The rule for spelling in Final Jeopardy! is that a misspelling is permissible if it does not change the way the word is pronounced. So here, "Emansapation" or "Amancipation" would have been accepted.Also, if the judges had accepted the answer, he would have finished in second place and taken home $2,000. They didn't, and he where did he finish? In second place, taking home $2,000.
serial_crusher: spelling a spelling
stoli n coke: swahnhennessy: I'm not seeing the outrage here. He lost regardless and walked away with what he'd have gotten either way.People are bent out of shape that the kid's feelings got hurt. Welcome to Generation Snowflake.
