I’m a huge fan of Jeopardy, and a few weeks ago I got an email from them telling me that on January 29, there would be an online test for East Coast people who wanted to try out. I decided to have a go at it, since I usually do really well when I’m watching the show.
Watching on TV, and trying to answer the questions under pressure are two completely different things. The test was 50 questions and you had 15 seconds for each one. No going back, pausing, do-overs. It was damn hard. I don’t think I got more than 10 questions correct. It was a very humbling experience, I can tell you.
