    I didn’t get to see the show last night, but a friend told me there was a question involving the Adler Planetarium. Does anyone remember the question?

      The clue was in the Art & Artists category and was worth $800:

      The Henry Moore sundial seen here, “Man Enters the Cosmos,” greets visitors to this city’s Adler Planetarium.

      Julia buzzed in with the right response.

    Job well done lilly! Good luck to you in the finals of the jeopardy college championship. I’ve seen plenty of Selfies on facebook and other sites. The question is when was the word selfies first introduced, VJ

    Alex and Julia obviously were focusing on what was in the photo, though the expression “swoll” really has to do with being muscular. Trebek also expected all of them to get this one, remarking that the winner would be determined by the wagers. Then he took it back before revealing their answers.

    I’m surprised only one of the three got Final right.

    41/61 here. Interesting to note that Joanne Campbell posted two episodes of Jeopardy! on her Youtube page from September 1987 (at least the first one was), but I posted the first one and the episodes were taken down by the time I clicked on the second episode. Don’t know if Joanne took them off or Sony did. The first video ended as Alex was reading the FJ! clue.

    Good job, Lilly! She looks so very shy when she wins.
