    1,000,000! wow

    OK I know he has won 30 times but I have yet to catch an episode. My wife told me about him and how smarmy he acts, so the show has been Tivo'd and I hope I can see him action.

    If Jeopardy has an all Mac catergory day Ken will lose. I believe I heard he hates Macs.

    Well, maybe - where'd you hear it from? But the guy's a Mormon and answers every drinking question perfectly, so, even if he hates Macs, I'm sure he knows about them.... There seems to be no real gap anywhere in his knowledge of trivia.

    I'm sorry, but there's something about this guy that bothers me...I mean, mad props to his Level 99 Nerdity, but still...30 days?! C'mon! He's definitely an alien, a robot, a government experiment unleashed on the public, or some combination of the three. :D

    he still has 18 days left to catch the one record he does not hold...48 consectutive days a contestant had on tic-tac-dough

    of course, with the regis game show thing, ken will have to win for months on jeopardy to make the most money ever won on a game show which i think is either five or ten million

    ken knows things way beyond his supposed clean living...drinking and mixed drink recipies as mentioned above, but he knows about mati hari, the sexy prostitute/spy goddess of erotic lore, anais nin and delta of venus, and many, many r rated movies...but then again, r rated does not mean that much anymore ;)

    Hey, be careful what you say...You're desecrating the name of the dweebs' God. And it's a sad day when a dweeb loses faith in his God...A sad day indeed.

    Yeah, I'm fortunate to have grown up with geek chic.

    but like revenge of the nerds, i was, like many nerds, very well informed on sexual things and even mixed drinks...even though i didn't touch alcohol or girls

    i could skip the beer, but couldn't give up fantasizing about the girls who largely ignored me ...the jocks got the chicks but not the good grades, but good grades don't have soft, velvety skin...;)

    This is very true. I'm definitely glad to have a girlfriend now, for the first time ever.

    But the grades in that they can help you get the job that gets you the money (or at least, more money than the burger-flipping jocks) gets you the chicks in the long run.

    That chain of events, though, isn't much to fantasize about.

    I agree, wholeheartedly, though. The alcohol isn't for me, but who's gonna deny the goodness of the ladies. :D

    Okay, you caught me/us. Time to come clean...

    My government team, which is located on a remote island in Japan, has been conducting experimental breeding focusing on cerebrial enhancement.

    We released him into the wild to see how he would function. So far, pretty good I would say.

    I'd rather not merge the two threads on this topic (it would probably confuse readers), so I'll link here to the previous thread and let's continue there. I'll put a link back to this thread there too.

    Please switch to this thread: Ken Jennings can't lose on Jeopardy!!
