    Haiti is a country, not an island. Jeopardy FAIL

  2. Villages were abandoned not due to danger but due to government orders. Wildlife in the Chernobyl area is thriving today like never before. See the PBS nature program titled Chernobyl.

    Nuclear power has the ability to stop our carbon emissions. That could save mankind and all life on earth. Nuclear power actually saves lives every year by replacing fossil fuel power production. Put that in your final Jeopardy answer some day – if you dare come down on the side of helping humans Instead of profit for the fossil fuel industry.

    I actually would have suggested a larger wager for John on the last DD. By betting 4900, he would give himself a chance at a lock, with the downside of a probable 2nd place spot into FJ. Is it more likely that he knows FJ than a DD in a category he has already played?

    The Rwanda Genocide was april 7th 1994 and chernobyl was 1986. So I don’t think the leader knows anything about 20th century history. This should not have been that tough because those villages are from russia and not africa. Eli misread the clue again. Still though this leader curse is just like from late november 2016 into mid january 2016 don’t you think VJ?

      You mean late December.

      @Lou, I think what we were waiting for at that time was a 4x winner. The “curse” at that time was the 4th game. I’m looking at the list of 3x champs after the 2015 ToC and up til Fred Vaughn. they were Kyle Webb, Amelia Hershberger, Steve Belding, Alex Maggio and Joyce Hshieh (between 12/1/15 and 1/22/16).

      Even if I missed one, that’s some string waiting for a 4x champ. Kyle Webb lost to Fred Vaughn on 1/22/16. Fred won his 4th game on 1/27/16.

      Those 3x champs are not in the Top 15 anymore but links to their last games are still on the current ToC list.

    Where did Rwanda come from??? I do not think it has been abandoned at all.

    A weird coincidence that Congressman John Lewis was one of the clues tonight. I bet the clue writers did not anticipate he would be big news the day the show aired for locking horns with Trump. :( Not surprised that clue was a ts. I didn’t know it either even though he is in the news. Shame on me. Brain freeze!

    Rwanda?!?! See why I stay away from 3/3 predictions? Of course, the leader curse continues, so my other prediction failed.

    Mighty unexpected ending to that match! John sure lucked out in the end. I could not believe that he risked his lead like that.
