    Yes JC. Ironically, I started playing last night. My wife has been playing and introduced it to me. We have a group chat with our youth pastor and his wife. We like the competition.

    My mom plays it and was telling me to try it. Apparently she plays The NY Times version which gives one puzzle per day, and keeps stats. I got the NYT app but not sure if I need a subscription to play. Or, is there a better way to play it?

    i play the NYT version for free and without the app. the stats don’t matter to me anyway, and furthermore i play through my duck duck go browser which doesn’t save my info.

    there are other free versions available that let you play more than once per day, if you’re so inclined.

    Good song! Unfortunately we're still dealing with the same kind of people today.

    I did some research on this song. It was written and recorded by Marty Robbins in 1966.

    He wanted it released as a single but his record company wouldn't do that. They said it was too controversial.

    The (((communist agitators))) of the 1960s are very similar to the (((neocons))) of the 21st century.

    They despise and undermine America, while being loyal only to Israel. In the 1960s they were anti-establishment, now they ARE the establishment.

    Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Lee Weiner, Norman Mailer, Paul Krassner, Allen Ginsberg, Seymour Hersh, etc.


    Victoria Nuland, Antony Blinken, Rachel Levine, Janet Yellen, Ron Klain, Eric Lander, Merrick Garland, etc.

    While I was filling my car with gas I saw a sticker on the pump. It had a picture of Joe Biden pointing at the price saying "I did this." Hilarious. :D

    The price of gas wasn't though. :eek:

    The sucker punch is a TNB calling card. A criminal charge is the only remedy, because a civil lawsuit is a waste of time and uncollectable.

    Parents of high school track star sucker-punched during race are considering lawsuit 'against attacker after they were stopped from pressing charges by cops'

    Cops didn't want them to press charges.

    The subway suspect is a black supremacist. The Waukesha killer is a black supremacist. The guy who tried to assassinate a mayoral candidate is a black supremacist. The man who murdered a capitol police officer was a black supremacist. In summary, white supremacy is the problem.

    Today is Vladimir Lenin's birthday. Lenin is a mass murderer and one of the most evil men in history.

    Naturally the liberals made today a holiday, in honor of Lenin. Clearly, the date for the fake holiday "Earth Day" was picked because it was Lenin's birthday.

    Liberals love murdering, communist tyrants.

    23 year old Canadian Mattea Roach had her 23 game Jeopardy winning streak ended today. She is fifth all-time in games won. In fact, three of the five all-time winners have come in the past year, with "Amy" Schneider now second and Matt Amodio third.

    Unfortunately the demographics of Jeopardy contestants has changed quite a bit in recent months. Most contestants, a good two-thirds to three-fourths, are now women. For example it was all women the past two days, which is no longer an exception. And most of the men are now Indians and Orientals. When a White man does appear he's often an obvious limpwrist or some kind of leftist (blue hair and other giveaways). I don't know if the disappearance of normal White men as contestants is now deliberate Jeopardy policy or just another result of the ongoing psy-war and marginalization tactics being used against White men. Either way it's dismaying to be sure.

    I thought it was the other way around. Admittedly I don't watch the show beyond highlights ie when the GOAT contestant was eliminated on a rather mundane question. Roach is an out lesbian and the shape shifter who's the greatest woman can't be classified IMO.

    Anyway the neighborhood watch parties with the extended Roach family has ended in the Halifax area....

    What did you think was the other way around? It isn't clear from what you wrote.

    The women are LGBTQ members or at least have had a run of them as super champions.

    Those are the exceptions from what I've seen, but it's hard to know since so many women are obese and not nearly as feminine as they used to be in mannerisms and dress. I was referring to most of the female contestants still being White as well as now being dominant in sheer number of contestants. I've watched Jeopardy off and on for a long time and men were always roughly the same as far as number of contestants and probably even a majority but not a huge one.

    Mattea has a nose ring, a number of ear piercings and a tattoo on her arm, but she has a likable personality and didn't flaunt her lesbianism. In fact I didn't know if she was or wasn't until you mentioned it.

    These people had no problem stealing a presidential election. They wouldn't have a problem with cheating on Jeopardy.

    Of course they will discriminate against white men in who they allow to play. They do everywhere else. I can also see them giving answers in advance to players they want to do well.

    Watch this movie sir or research it and this destroyed the Jeopardy of it's day...

    PS from what I remember about the contestant mix the contestants were a slight majority male but the champions were much more than that but this references would be the late 90's at best as around this era I stopped watching network television beyond sports and even then that was mostly at pubs as I didn't have cable and for a while in the early 2000's I didn't have a television that I used for anything but watching taped VCR or DVD shows and movies.

    PS2 I literally never saw a Black contestant not even a Mulatto type during this era which you would expect a bit.
