Tonight, for the second consecutive night, instead of keeping track of my score during Jeopardy!...I ate pizza. And it felt good. I did keep score on Monday, and got what may be my highest score ever:
Coryats: Erin Beach 9000 Paul Wampler 17200 Roger Mueller-Kim 12000 Me 28600
And there's still plenty to blog about: Tonight at 9 p.m. Central, the "Smartest Machine on Earth" episode of Nova will be on PBS. This is all about "Watson" and the matches between it and Ken Jenning and Brad Rutter. I plan to watch and take notes. I hope you'll watch too!
Even more exciting - MUCH more exciting for some of us - The Jeopardy! online tests are happening this week! I'd like to do one hundred exclamation points, but I guess I won't. Anyone else taking the test? I took mine tonight. The Jeopardy! message boards have a transcript with answers, so I know that I got 39/50, but possibly up to 41 depending on whether or not a couple of my last-second partial answers were accepted. Thirty-five is widely believed to be the cut-off, so...I DID IT! How did you guys do? I'd love to hear about it.
