    Wow Jlane, you have many interests. Trivia contest sounds like fun. No wonder you’re so well-rounded when it comes to knowledge. Fantastic to find this out about you. “You rock” as the younger generation says. :)

    • JLane says:

      Thanks dude! The Team Trivia gig is a blast! We all have so much fun – loads of laughter accompanied by great food and oodles of cold,adult beverages! And the players even confess that they learn a lot of new stuff week in and week out. That’s pretty satisfying, too! (But just between us… I only do it cuz they let me drink for free!) ;-)

    @Jlane, congratulations on your predictions yesterday. 2 correct it was & GM came up. I also agree that clue writers need to remember that there are 7 continents. How they got stuck in Asia I don’t know. Wild. Today’s country has been in the news recently but I think the show was taped months ago. I agree with VJ in that this should be a slam dunk for Manny. The other contestants should know this too but sometimes people confuse their “I”s. We shall see.

    • JLane says:

      @ Jacob – Yessir – I agree … The “I” nations from that part of the world get improperly mixed-and-matched on occasion And I’m also aware that these shows are taped well in advance. The point that I was trying to make is, the only reason I most likely got this right was because of the current events taking place. Otherwise, I probably would have drawn a blank.
      Regarding the lucky GM prognostication, I didn’t even know about it until this AM. Because I host my own trivia contest on Monday evenings, I don’t watch Jeopardy! on Mondays. I used to record it, but since I’ve discovered “Fikkle Fame” and VJ’s spot-on analysis and recaps, I no longer feel the need! :-)

      I was so proud of myself for actually guessing this one! It didn’t occur to me until reading the comments that this country has been in the news so much this past week and that’s why I thought of it lol. I was giving myself far too much credit for coming up with the correct response!!
      VJ, I am always in awe of your knowledge of geography.

      • VJ says:

        Thanks Rhonda but I mainly just know the basic where is that stuff– there is so much I don’t know and I’m always learning new stuff.

    Really?!? Another FJ CotD about Asian Geography?! Didn’t we just have a question about the Mekong River last Friday? Geez… Mix it up a little bit Jeopardy! clue writers, please! (I know the aforementioned clue was about “Flags”, but as Jacob stated so eloquently, it boiled down to a “Geography” question.)
    Despite my absolute ignorance in all things “Asian”, I thiiiink I might know this one, probably because it’s been in the news quite a bit in recent days over “missile” deals. Could it be a country that we had a skirmish with back in the late 70s/early 80s regarding some Americans being held hostage? AND, it’s also a song title by a one-hit wonder band called “A Flock of Seagulls”, also from the early 80’s … :-)

    • VJ says:

      You’re right, JLane. I love geography so I got this one right away and I’m sure it will be a cinch for Navy Man Manny. :) Congrats on your correct prediction yesterday. You were even right that GM would show up! .

      • JLane says:

        @ VJ – Thanks darlin’! I had a hunch that someone might go down the “GM Bankruptcy” road accidentally. And I envy your knowledge of world geography… I’m a bona fide dolt when it comes to that category! :-(
        BTW – today, for the first time since March or April, the high temp is going to be in the low 70s! Can I get a “Hallelujah!” from the congregation!!!

        • VJ says:

          Hallelujah! JLane. It’s so great to not feel like you’re suffocating, ain’t it?We went back up to the humid 90s for a spell last week but it broke yesterday. It’s about 65 right now, supposed to go up to 80, and the air Is dry. Hope the temps stay moderate for both of us at least till January!!
