    The current Jeopardy champion, Larissa something or other, is on a six-day winning streak with...

    She won another $42,800 tonight...

    Now rates third all-time in winnings, not including TOC's.

    I thought Ken Jennings made a comeback.

    Oh well.

    She doesn't have the timing of Jennings - really, the most important quality, because, after all, they're all freaking brilliant - but she's just as sharp. Risks a ton when on daily doubles.

    I once beat the computer on the Super Nintendo Jeopardy. Man, 1997 was a good year.

    I thought this thread was about Birdscribe, too.

    Yeah. That was the year Fleetwood Mac reunited and put out The Dance.

    Then again, Stevie always put out back in the day. She's had more hands up her dress than Miss Piggy. </Bette Midler>

    That's almost $40k per day. Damn. She must be going nuts on the doubles and final jeopardy.

    I watched a couple of her wins and she had tight battles going into final jeopardy, which forced her to wager a lot. I think that she's good, but not unreal.
