I jumped seven slots in the last question. No complaints. The google penalty cost me four slots.

Good game, JasonF.

That was good - I learned stuff too from the (annoying) popularity of a certain film to the more useful fact that Exports and Imports are 2 separate variables in GDP.

I'm too lazy to look, but I think this is the first time I've finished in last, and it was by a good margin. Lousy multipliers at the end (which are a nice twist)

The question was to name a network known for its news coverage, not a network known for its propoganda. Zing!

(Yes, I'm just catching up on this thread. What can I say -- I've been tied up on something else all day so I haven't had a chance to read all of the posts).

I had CNN first (as my gut told me) but then went into forum-mode. Forum-mode obviously would have been better used on another question.

Any objections to me running the next one of these in Politics, after a short hiatus that I'm sure we could all use?

Fun game. I had a good time.

But too many questions about judges.

JasonF stalkers take note -- this is a shot of President Obama eating at my favorite restaurant, Manny's in Chicago. Best Jewish deli in the world.

I guess when you can't get halal, kosher has to do.

Dang, one last answer away from a top ten finish. Oh well, middle-ish ain't bad for where I was earlier.

Congrats again orangecrush!

Thanks JasonF, it was a great game!

Many objections, but none of them good ones. I say go for it.

What about an American history one? Who would play that?

Well, at least my terrible misread of the Asia question didn't cost me a win.

Congratulations, orangecrush18. Great work JasonF.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

I actually thought people would READ the question and realize CNN is NOT a network despite it's name. Or maybe I'm just old and read it to mean one of the big 4 actual networks.

Based on my consistently low finishes, I think, on average, I am the worst SHEEP player there is.

Hey! Coal Fire in Chicago reminds me of home. Then again you (so did I) think Chicago sty;e pizza is that tourist thick stuff (crap).

Also, some good attempts but there is not a Jewish Deli in Chicago that I have been to that come close to the ones I grew up with.

He's taking the day off work.

The real question is why he wasted a day off on this.
