      Funny...tell you what. Let's all follow your example and be cynical,
      miserable posters who's greatest pleasure is criticizing others for
      their own sad amusment...what fun! Right now I wish there was an
      abbreviation for "giving the middle finger"...and other posters have
      very likely wished the same when you use your "wit". Oscar Wilde you
      ain't.

        Sorry about that. I've never actually seen "Jeopardy" as it's not on
        TV across the pond. I only know about it because it's often featured
        in American movies..."sitting on the sofa with a pen & paper
        watching Jeopardy" seems to be an American archetype :)

        Telly watching lost it's interest for me years ago because there is
        so much s**t on the box nowadays. Now I tend to either socialise or
        read. However, if I could watch Double Jeopardy I would ;-)

          If you're British, think of it as the American version of Mastermind,
          at least in terms of being a game show for brainiacs.
