Just a Thought: Jeopardy!

by Lincoln Sedlacek

Jeopardy’s “answer in the form of a question” format is just unrealistic. I don’t think that if I were asked the question, “What is missing a leg?” my answer would be, “It was the anatomical oddity of US gymnast George Eyser, who won a gold medal on the parallel bars in 1904.” I’d probably go with “a partially built table” or “my neighbor’s cat, who had that bad run-in with a lawnmower.”
