Tweet of the Day, I Wish I Had Seen This Jeopardy Episode edition.

This must have been riveting.

Also: this is what “X was playing chess while Y was playing checkers” actually looks like. Calibrate accordingly.

Ha! I beat @_FloridaMan!

…I got three out of five.

The $1000 question was one of those embarrassing ones, though: I completely guessed that one wrong, and felt ashamed when I heard the answer. Because, duh.  Of course. I should have known it.  Watch the video, and you’ll see what I mean.

The Jeopardy position is taken. (Language warning)

Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash:

Until a man is twenty-five, he still thinks, every so often, that under the right circumstances he could be the baddest motherfucker in the world. If I moved to a martial-arts monastery in China and studied real hard for ten years. If my family was wiped out by Colombian drug dealers and I swore myself to revenge. If I got a fatal disease, had one year to live, and devoted it to wiping out street crime. If I just dropped out and devoted my life to being bad.

Hiro used to feel this way, too, but then he ran into Raven. In a way, this was liberating. He no longer has to worry about being the baddest motherfucker in the world. The position is taken.

And then there’s Roger Craig.

The position is taken.

Via Win!
